There is so much more to Spain than just the biggies like Barcelona and Madrid. If you take the road less traveled then you will be amazed to find some really peaceful and tourist-free locales which make them perfect for a relaxed vacation. Among these you will find a small port in the heart of Gran Canaria, Puerto de Mogan which will surely take your breath away.

Nestled in the maw of the Mogan Valley, it is geographically divided into three major parts – the old village on top of the hill, the harbor front and the beach area. Quite near to this valley is another small fishing village, Pueblo Mogan that witnesses much less number of visitors than Puerto de Mogan.

The seaside town is a great destination for a complete day-out on the Gran Canaria Island. Most of the day trippers who arrive at this Mogan harbor don’t forget to explore its one-of-a-kind nature’s scenery, lay down on the beach to go far away from the stress of busy life, enjoy water based activities and have food at one of the fish restaurants. Many of the restaurants have outdoor terraces overlooking the sea and the boats.

Try out the delicious seafood

If you are a budget traveler, visit one of the fish restaurants located back the coastline behind the car park area as they are more affordable than the restaurants in the front line. And you can be rest assured that you won’t see any compromise on the quality of food in these budget restaurants.

In the mainland of this Mogan harbor is the official Fisherman's Guild, known as Cofradia de Pescadores, which a restaurant portraying views of the entire harbor.
