Mogan by Boat
Excursions & day trips

Mogan by Boat

Puerto de Mogan is said by many to be the most beautiful town in Gran Canaria, and once you've set eyes on its toytown houses, it's hard to argue. This tour brings you by boat, docking right in the heart of the harbour after a scenic approach, so you avoid long walks from out-of-town parking lots.Cupped into cliffs at the mouth of a steep valley, it's known as ‘Little Venice' for its canal, blue-and-yellow-trimmed white cottages, wrought iron balconies and flower-festooned lanes. Traits that have made it very popular – but by road, not the most scenic. Arriving by boat, you're in the middle of all the action straight away. Only TUI brings you to and from Mogan by boat.You'll have free time to browse the gift shops or just relax at one of the many terraced cafés overlooking the yachts. Oh, and there's also a gorgeous sandy beach to stretch out on, too.
