Holidays to Puerto de Mogan
Puerto de Mogan has so much to appeal for a small resort. There are many attributes, firstly it is picturesque, it has a good beach, enchanting yacht marina, good shops and restaurants and a real holiday vibe.
Located on the sunny south-west coast the resort provides a great year round climate. It takes around 45 minutes to an hour by transfer coach to arrive here from the island’s airport. The resort has the nickname of little Venice due to the bridges that cross its seawater inlet. You can stroll around the quaint old town and view the lovely homes and cottages many strewn with colourful Hibiscus.
The beach with its lovely sand (imported from the Sahara) provides safe bathing in the cool Atlantic waters, there are sun loungers and parasols for hire as well as pedaloes and canoes.
