The original fishing village of Playa de Mogán with its narrow passageways and steps is a jumble of whitewashed houses and apartments clinging to the cliffside. Canaries really do sing in Las Conchas!

If you have the energy, keep climbing the steps of Las Conchas up to the highest viewing point (Mirador) where you can experience panoramic views of the whole resort and well worth the effort! The harbour area, known as the "Venice of the Canaries" or “Little Venice” is a charming new apartment development, yet because it has been tastefully done feels like stepping back in time...plenty of boats and not a car in sight! The roof terraces in this area are bursting with bougainvillea and other gloriously
colourful plants. The gardens of banana and papaya trees, palms and bird-of-paradise plants are a real pleasure.  From your 28 Las Conchas accommodation, you can sit and watch the rooftop ‘life’ of ‘Little Venice’ from high above.

To the left of the Marina is the glorious white Sahara sand beach.  A promenade links the beach to the newer developments that stretch back up the valley taking in a shopping centre, new hotel, local garden centre with walks that extend into the valley, offering fantastic views up the valley or back to the beach and across the ocean.

There are plenty of restaurants and ‘eating places’ to cater for all budgets.  Puerto de Mogan restaurants specialise in serving fresh fish landed within a stones throw at the local fishing harbour as well as other ‘Canarian’ & international dishes.

The resort offers several banks, two supermarkets and many smaller shops selling either clothes, souvenirs, jewelry and much more.

If you want a haircut or maybe even a tattoo, there are a choice of hair salons and a tattoo bar.  If you need to send an email or surf the web, there are several places where you can get connected, including an Internet Café in the main square.


Market Day

On Fridays there is a large open-air market which fills the two plazas on the marina side of Puerto de Mogan and the area behind the beach. There are hundreds of stalls selling shoes, clothes, leather goods and watches, many bearing designer logos.  Try your hand at getting a real bargain.

You can buy African carvings and drums, cheap and cheerful jewellery, second hand books, fruit and vegetables, beach towels sarongs and swimwear. Look out for the locally-produced crafts such as hand-thrown pottery, exotic candles and glass sculptures.

Yachting and boating

Boat trips and fishing are popular in Puerto de Mogan with excellent facilities for "yachties" whether it’s temporary moorings in the marina, repairs and servicing or a wish to stay for a little longer.


If you fancy an underwater adventure try the ‘Yellow Submarine’ but you do need to book at least 3 days in advance. This is a spectacular trip to visit the secrets of the deep as you uncover lost wrecks and a myriad of beautiful marine life.
