Travel Inspirations - Puerto de Mogán

Puerto de Mogán is often referred to as the Venice of Gran Canaria . Its Italianate houses, pretty roof gardens and enchanting alleys certainly echo the romantic Italian city and attract tourists from all over the world. Puerto de Mogán is a popular tourist destination and many believe that it is the finest place to visit in the whole island of Gran Canaria . The beauty of the town coupled with a huge variety of things to see and do make this town a must-see. History It's hard to imagine nowadays, but before becoming the burgeoning tourist haven we see today Puerto de Mogán was a modest village, with small houses and narrow alleyways, called Playa de Mogán The Puerto de Mogán we see today was constructed in the 1980’s following the drafted plans of Rafael Neville. Following extensive land reclamation from the Atlantic, the current town was finished in 1988, after 5 years of construction. Although tourism plays a vital role in the day to day life of Puerto de Mogán, the local government has vowed not to let the industry destroy the traditions of this small village, whose heritage lies in fishing exportation. Culture Puerto de Mogán is a city rapidly expanding its tourism industry but it still remains authentically Canarian. Many locals have chosen to stay here despite the rise in holidaymakers stopping by the town all throughout the year. These locals are friendly too, and they recognise that this industry can benefit their town, which is why they’re so accommodating to the travelling public. The atmosphere in this part of the island is quite relaxed. This is a tranquil part of the world and it’s definitely worth visiting if you’re looking for a place to unwind. Economy Puerto de Mogán has blossomed into a fully fledged tourist resort. The town relies heavily on this industry and strives to cater to this specific market. Hotel complexes and resorts have been built to deal with the demand from holidaymakers in recent times. Also, many of the locals still rely on fishing to support themselves. Puerto de Mogán used to heavily rely on this business many years ago, and though still an important source of income, nowadays it is secondary to tourism. Interestingly, the local government had decreed that houses over 2 stories may not be built in the area, so as not to spoil the view from the various hotels located around the area! How To Get There If you are travelling by car from Las Palmas then you can reach Puerto de Mogán by taking the GC-1 all the way along the south coast. The journey should take no longer than an hour and a quarter. If you’re travelling by bus then it’s advisable to catch the Global 01 bus from La Palma s. This bus takes you directly to Puerto de Mogán and there are several services throughout the day. The first bus departs at 5.00am and the last bus departs at 11.30pm, with buses in between running approximately every 20 minutes. On Saturdays the services are slightly less frequent, running every 30 minutes. If you’re coming from the West then it’s best to jump on the Global 38 bus from San Nicola de Tolentino. This bus takes you straight to Puerto de Mogán too. However there are only 5 services from this station; the 5.45am, the 8.00 and 9.00am and the 2.05pm and 5.30pm.
There are a limited number of modest museums in the area but if you would like to visit a comprehensive museum then it is advisable to take a short trip to Las Palmas, where there is a much bigger range.

There are a number of water sport activities like jet ski, jet boat, flyboard, banana boat, parasailing to add a little bit of thrill and adrenaline to your otherwise calm and relaxing holiday. You can also join a boat trip, board a glass bottom boat to visit neighbouring town or simple submerge in beautiful underworld on a diving trip. If you are looking for something different, why not go on a Camel Safari and spend a nice time with family and friends? Or try out the new and exhilarating paratriking flying experience
The sand of the Puerto de Mogán beach was actually imported from the Sahara desert. As a result the sand is gloriously golden and it stretches a considerable way across the area. The sea on this beach is almost always calm, due to a device implanted towards the shore of the area which eliminates heavy waves. This makes it possible for swimmers to relax and feel truly at peace. For those of a more adventurous nature, all you have to do is swim out around 40 or so metres. Here, the waves are more lively and the sea is slightly more aggressive. This is also a good area to bring snorkels and diving equipment. The promenade on this beach offers a range of different restaurants and shops. So you can satisfy any food or shopping craving without too much trouble!
Festivals Fiesta Del Carmen Every July, the fiesta del Carmen is celebrated in Puerto de Mogán. This fiesta consists of locals carrying a statue of the Virgin Mary from one end of the town to the other in an extravagant procession. This festival lasts for several days and usually concludes with fireworks being let off at midnight on the beach. It’s a great spectacle and something you won’t forget in a hurry. Puerto de Mogán celebrates various other local festivals but none is as big, or as widely known as the fiesta del Carmen. Restaurants Puerto de Mogán offers a wide array of fine restaurants.
