Puerto de Mogán has a unique and idyllic atmosphere created by a network of canals crossed by bridges connecting the yacht marina and fishing harbour. There are three main areas: Puerto de Mogán, Playa de Mogán and Pueblo de Pescadores (Risco de Mogán).
A gentle pace of life
The peaceful fishing town of Puerto de Mogán was originally home to locals dragging their boats up the beach but has grown to become a desirable location with exclusive properties and a marina that is just as likely to welcome pleasure boats or yachts on their way to the Caribbean.
The town is contained within the beautiful valley that leads down to the marina and Playa de Mogán. The beach boasts 200m of white sand and protected by breakwaters that make it a great choice for families enjoying calm turquoise water on perfect sunny days.
This is a picturesque location, with beautiful and well-maintained historic houses that add extra colour to a wander through the canals, while the low density of buildings and green spaces add to the atmosphere of calm. Properties include penthouses with roof terraces, 1 or 2-bedroom apartments overlooking the sea and houses in el Risco de Mogán.
Pueblo de Pescadores (Risco de Mogán) is the oldest part of town, a quiet and beautiful residential neighbourhood that oozes charm. The whole barrio is pedestrianised with narrow, winding paths between houses, most with stunning views of the marina and the beach. Flat roofs add extra appeal, perfect for use as terraces that enjoy the sunshine for most of the day.
An international flavour
There is a strong local community, while many visitors come from all over northern Europe to escape the cold winter and enjoy the perfect sunshine on the beach or from the terrace of their tourist apartment or hotel. The latest area by Playa de Mogán offers high-end hotels such as the Cordial Mogán Playa with its michelin star restaurant Los Guayres and Radisson Blue Resort & Spa.
The beach, marina and beautiful old town provide plenty of entertainment, with a range of bars and restaurants serving local fresh fish, perfect for a long al fresco lunch in the sun. The more adventurous might prefer to drink in the view from the Mirador Juan Hernández Moreno, take a boat trip or enjoy an energetic day out at the Lago Taurito in the neighbouring valley.
