Puerto Mogan Deals

A modern resort that's full of traditional Spanish charm

The manmade sandy beach was imported from the Sahara Desert and the quaint harbour expands into a modest marina; all this without losing any of its traditional Spanish charm. Located where the rocky Mogan Valley reaches the sea, Puerto Mogan nestles between the walls of the valley, with hotels sunk into it offering breathtaking views over the Ocean. The beach shelves gently into its clear warm waters with sun beds and parasols offering relaxation and shade.

The wonderful village atmosphere is enhanced by the Mediterranean houses, pretty gardens and colourful window boxes. Narrow streets are home to cafes and jazz bars with bridges linking the buildings giving Puerto Mogan the nickname of ‘Venice of the Canaries’. Al fresco Tapas bars line the promenade with fresh fish restaurants popular around the marina.
