Arrived on the bus and walked down onto what seems to be another typical Gran Canaria resort but when you find the lovely old-looking streets behind the port with small shops, cafes and lots of lovely flowers everywhere and crucially, shady places to sit

Very relaxed and safe holiday destination

Some of the negative reviews of Puerto de Mogãn seem a bit harsh to me. No, I wouldn't keep coming back because it's quite small and there are plenty of other destinations in the Canaries and around the world. No, the beach isn't always the best because i

This is a lovely beach and people travel here to have a day in the sun from all over the Island . This is also close to Patalavaca, so there are quite many hotels in the neighbourhood. Still worth to go there and dip your Tones in the sand !
