Welcome to Puerto de Mogán, the “Little Venice” of Grand Canaria..
During these gray times, I find it important to remember that warmer days are coming. Actually I was really fortunate to spend a week in Grand Canaria during the month of January and this was really a true life saver. One of those days when it looked like rain was coming, we decided to jump in a taxi and see what Puerto de Mogán had to offer in terms of shopping. While waiting for the taxi to arrive, we got our picture taken just outside the hotel reception.
I have actually been to the exact same place 2 years ago and it’s even more lovely the second time around. Puerto de Mogán is a very charming fishing village that carries the nickname “Little Venice”. The marina ties together with canals and walking around there you see pretty much everything from beach life to grumpy old guys disputing over a game of chess.
Although the idea was to go shopping, we ended up having a little dessert before our dinner at the marina. Even though there are plenty of hotels in Mogán, this is still a place that feels like home to many. Sure we crossed tourists like our selves but what you notice in Mogán is everything else. The lovely view of the sea and mountains, the amazing architecture surrounding the marina and the vibe of the locals meeting up in their corners of the town to pursue the evening.
