On the beach there is a great range of water sports for lovers of the sea and adrenaline junkies.

Attractions & Sightseeing in Puerto de Mogán

Little Venice

Things to do in Puerto de Mogán Gran Canaria
Bougainvillea-covered Arches

The small colorful houses in the harbor area have always given Puerto de Mogan its special charm and earned it the nickname "Little Venice". The picturesque streets are lined with colorful flowerbeds; you stroll through bougainvillea-covered arches and take small bridge to cross the canals. This environment offers countless great photo opportunities. Many small, cozy coffee-shops invite you to linger and enjoy.

Archaeological Site

Cañada de los Gatos - an ancient Canarian settlement is very well preserved and can be visited. The indigenous people of Gran Canaria "Guanches”, were settled here before the Spanish conquest. The age of the finds is dated to 1300 years. The facility is open from 10:00 - 17: 00h. The entrance fee is 4€.

A little further up in the same street of the "Cañada de los Gatos" you will also find the well-preserved remains of the outer wall of a Guanche dwelling in the front yard of a residential building. The site is clearly visible from the outside through a grid and you will receive some interesting information about the find on various information boards.

The Church

The Small Village Church

The small village church "Ermita de San Fernando", built in 1935, joins in an alley in the second row from the beach in the midst of the lively activity around the beach walk. It is barely recognizable from the outside in an inconspicuous building on the corner of "Paseo de los Pescadores ". It is great example for a typical Canarian village church. The church can be visited on Sundays during met.

Old Town - Fishing Village

This is the authentic Puerto de Mogen. This part of the village is still quite Canarian except for a few smaller pensions. There is a lot to discover in the winding little streets of the old town, which meander up the mountain. In this part you can experience the everyday life of the resident fishing families up close.

The Statue of Elías Hernández García

The bronze figure of an older gentleman, is sitting on one of the benches in the Plaza Doctor Pedro Betancor Leon, called "La Plazita" by the locals. His arm is leaning on his walking stick and his eyes are empty. It is the memory of a real person of the small harbor village, a former fruit and sugar cane seller.

The Shrine of St. Rita

The helper in lost causes was the patron saint of the family of Rafael Neville, the designer of the marina "Little Venice". He brought a small statue of the saint with him when he realized the harbor project in Puerto de Mogan. The shrine can be found on the small square in front of the "THe Hotel Puerto de Mogan".

Art Sculptures

You can admire a total of 5 different stone sculptures by Canarian artists on a walk along the Avendida de los Marreros between the beach and the valley. The sculptures were made as part of a competition for the 200th anniversary of the community.

The Viewpoint

View From the Vantage Point to the Old Town

The viewpoint "Mirador" in the old town center is well signposted. The viewing platform can be reached via countless, steep steps through the narrow streets of the quaint old town. The strenuous ascent is rewarded with a beautiful view of the pretty village, the beach and its harbor. The climb is worthwhile during the day and also in the evening, when the colorful village lights are reflected in the harbor basin.

The Caves

Experienced swimmers and adventurous people can explore countless caves in the steep cliffs in a westerly direction. Equipped with snorkel and mask, you can watch the many colorful fish and octopuses in the rocky outcrops.

The Beach of Puerto de Mogán

The Beach of Puerto de Mogán

A comparatively small beach with magnificent surrounding. In the background there is the imposing mountain scenery, which extends into the interior and in the front there is the lovely view of the picturesque harbor area. The sand is golden and the water is always calm. Great for swimming with kids.

Sunset

Just in time for the sunset you meet the rocks at the end of the village, next to the fishing port. From this bay you have a spectacular view of the colorful Canary sunsets. The sun really offers impressive natural spectacles as it seems to sink into the ocean. In the distance you can see a few boats and the seagulls gliding away in the evening sun.

Fresh Fish

Fish lovers should not miss a meal of freshly caught Atlantic fish. In the harbor restaurant of the fishing cooperative "Cofradia" this is prepared in a typical Canary way: You will also get the small Canarian potatoes with the spicy garlic sauce "Mojo" and some “Alioili”.

The Ports of Puerto de Mogán

Marina

The chic sports harbor is located in the so-called "Little Venice". The idyllic ambiance invites you to linger. Surrounded by a promenade with numerous cafes and restaurants, you can admire sleek yachts from all over the world. The classy harbor atmosphere is enjoyed best with a lunch or a coffee.

Fishing Port

Further afield, at the very end of the harbor area, there is the fishing port.

This is the area of old-established fishermen this is where they meet; tell sailors stories and do business.

The Beach Promenade

The beach promenade invites to stroll and linger. Although this mile, same as the beach, is a bit smaller, it boosts a varied offer. Among the numerous restaurants serving international cuisine, you will find the trendy brand boutiques such as the Fundgrube or Mint, as well as a superb small Italian ice cream shop.

Markets

A big colorful market runs through the whole village every Friday. Hundreds of stalls offer local specialties such as fruits, vegetables, honey or aloe products as well as accessories and clothing.

A small contemplative market takes place on Mondays at the square above the underground car park. Mainly handcrafted goods offered here, which is not about Canary craftsmanship, but much more handmade jewelries.

Shopping Mall

The modern building at the entrance to of the village is an eye catcher. It is located a bit further down the valley and has some great shops in the first floor. Here you will find cloths, jewelry and cosmetics. In the upper area there are some restaurants, bars and cafes. There is also a large supermarket in the basement.

Nightlife

The nightlife of Puerto de Mogán takes place in a small alley of the "Paseo de los Pescadores" in the second row of beach. This part of the village is called "BRONX" in the local jargon. You can mingle with the local people in a couple of small bars; have a few drinks and party with the "Moganeros" until around 02:00 in the morning.
