Puerto Mogan beach-side

Across the "barranco" the beach of imported golden sand is sheltered from the ocean by a rocky breakwater, providing calm water for swimming. Restaurants and shops with apartments above them line the promenade and extend up the valley from the beach.

This more recent development, on an area that less than twenty years ago was a plant nursery and home to locals also includes four and five star hotels and contrasts with the archaeological site of a Guanche settlement dating back to before Spain colonised the Canary Islands.

it's a great place to relax with a beer or coffee at the end of the day and watch the sunset over the resort and the cliffs.
