Gran Canaria Shopping: Where To Shop In Puerto De Mogán

Shopping at Puerto de Mogán market Shopping at Puerto de Mogán market

Market days in Puerto de Mogán are Gran Canaria's biggest but if you visit on other days, there's plenty of little shops to explore in the gorgeous lanes behind the marina and the beach.

The Monday and Friday Puerto de Mogán markets

Puerto de Mogán heaves on a Friday as people pour in on the buses and ferries for the big market. It stretches through the town and all the way along the harbour wall.

You can buy almost anything at Mogán's Friday market, from fresh fruit and veg to local art, souvenirs and new knickers. It's great for browsing and most prices are negotiable by 10-20% or more. 

Get to town early if you want a relaxed look around (we recommend taking an early ferry): you'll be eating an early lunch by the time the crowds get thickest. Or visit Puerto de Mogán on a Monday for the quieter handicrafts market. Prices are higher but so is the quality as all stallholders must have artisan licenses. 

Marina shops at Puerto de Mogán

The only way to shop in Puerto de Mogán is to wander about and look down all the lanes. Don't miss the little alleyway between the boatyard and the marina or the shops behind the beach. If you can't find something in Puerto de Mogán, then just hop on a bus to Puerto Rico, or to Arguineguin (shops close at lunchtime). Don't, whatever the nice man says, buy electronic goods in Playa de Mogán or Puerto Rico shopping centre: see here for why

Beachfront shops at Playa de Mogán

The strip of restaurants right by Playa de Mogán beach includes a big Fundgrube (selling perfume, cosmetics, shoes, fashion accessories, etc) set in a beautiful old house that has stood by the sea for over 100 years. There are also several other smart shops along the beachfront. 

The Plaza Mogán shopping centre

The Plaza Mogán shopping centre a few hundred yards inland of the beach has yet to really get going. It's got a useful big supermarket and a few good bars and restaurants but it still doesn't have any real shops. Unless you're walking past it's not worth leaving the marina to visit. 

Groceries

The Puerto de Mogán Spar is the biggest and best supermarket in town and sells everything from fresh bread to live lobsters. It's here, just back from the beach next to the channel that separates the marina from the sand. For the odd item, there's a couple of small shops in the town and the marina but they are much more expensive than Spar. There's an Hiperdino in the Plaza Mogan shopping centre. It's down the steps at the inland end of the centre.
