Known as the ‘Little Venice’ of the Canaries because of its numerous canals, you could say Puerto de Mogan is as romantic as its Italian counterpart. On the southeast side of Gran Canaria, it’s a picturesque fishing village with gorgeous cobbled streets, bright with scented bougainvillea and purple hibiscus, attractive buildings and charming little bridges – Puerto de Mogan holidays are all about enjoying the unspoilt charm of this rustic resort. Puerto de Mogan beach is cute and sheltered, situated in a little cove, with waters tranquil enough for small children and relaxing views of the passing fishing boats and yachts.
Take a break from your sunlounger and browse the craft and produce shops for Canarian cheese, honey and wine. When you’ve worked up an appetite for traditional tapas or fine dining, eat al fresco while enjoying the quaint surroundings. Restaurants and bars line the harbour, and seafront meandering is a favourite after-dinner activity for all. With all its whimsical appeal, holidays to Puerto Mogan might just see you fall in love.
