Fascinating moon like landscape
Dec 2020
We followed the marked trail starting from the wind mill in Mogán and running east of the main road to Puerto de Mogán's northern part. Medium difficulty and a soon quite dramatic landscape with nothing newer than a couple of thousand years old in sight.

Get there soon.

A sheltered valley on the west of the island leading down to the little village of Porto Mogan. Nicely developed with trees and flowers and offering al the basic tourist needs.

New walks on the East side.
Mar 2019 • Couples
Now the zig zag rd is closed there are a few options on the East side from the closed GC 500. Head up along the closed rd on foot. There is a link fence but that is broken so you just walk in over it. At the last bend just before the you get to the headland and the main barriers there is a metal structure in the rock up on the East side with a small valley next to it. Head behind the crash barrier and up this valley. After a bit of a scramble for the first 10m you see the path becomes more defined and there are lots of cairns. There are a few places where people are living in the caves above, so stay lower down at first out of politeness then take any of the side paths to your right, marked by cairns, and you will come to the top of the ridge. From there you can walk either to the sea end with a nice view of the town and Taurito, or head north and come to the end of the ridge overlooking the entrance to the motorway and get a view up towards Mogán Village. Once you’re up there there are a few more trails long other ridges that you can link up with. Don’t forget to sign the petition to get the Camino Real on the west side re-opened. Just google it. :)

Windmill
Mar 2019 • Couples
A short visit to a restored windmill is a must. At the site is also some oversized kitchen items. Table and chairs ,coffee pot.stove,oil lamp etc.
Just like a scene out of Alice through the looking glass.
Entry was free although donations were appreciated.

Some walk options
Feb 2019 • Couples
Its nice to stretch your legs in this Barranco, and here's some walk options:

1. Veneguera lookout/mirador to Cruz de Mogan

Park at the Veneguera lookout about 20 minutes from Puerto de Mogan (halfway between the Asador Grill El Valle and Restaurant Las Canadas). There is a defined footpath heading south and after a fairly level and easy 20 minutes you'll be at Cruz de Mogan (you will only see the cross late on the apprach - it isn't the one high on the hill above that you can see from the lookout). This is a scenic, quiet walk that is worth doing.

2. walk to top of Barranco from Molino de Viento - altogether more challenging! This is a relentless uphill slog but great views. A narrow road goes up the hill opposite the windmill. Park where a dirt road comes off this road and walk a few metres along the dirt road until you pick up a footpath leading up. Take it to the top! Shaded in morning.

3. The GC-500 - still closed, you can stroll up it for views over town (shaded in morning)

4. Scramble above Mirador - at the mirador in Puerto de Mogan it doesn't look like you ca climb up the hill any further but it isn't actually that hard. You can reach the top in 10 minutes, although there is no path and it is a scramble.

Lovely views beware of location in Tripadvisor
Jan 2019 • Friends
It seems this activity is just to walk up the road to the now closed GC 500. Great views. However, don't follow the destination shown in the map on TA. It just goes to a random point in the wilderness not to a specific venue.

Scenic and Rugged
Nov 2018 • Couples
Our normal view when approaching Puerto Mogan is from way up high on the mountainous coast road, however this year the road seemed to be closed and the bus came via the motorway almost right into Puerto Mogan, this way you don't get to see the port from high up on the Barranco, which is a shame, however if the road is in danger of landslip or similar, then it is safer not to allow the road to be used.

Worth walking from Puerto Mogan
Jan 2019 • Couples
If you are staying in the Cordial Apartments area and enjoy a not too strenuous walk, I recommend this 5 km ( round trip) stroll up the valley. You can easily cross the road near the nursery opposite the sports field and make your way to the Garden Centre- amazing plants and aviary. Carry on up the road and go straight across some waste land till you get to the back of El Jardin -an oasis of palm trees, plants and a patio dining/drinks area- the entrance is on the main road side. We've been to this lovely spot a few times since discovering it last year. You can then walk on the path parallel to the road - about 200 metres to a bus stop or walk to your right up to the little village of houses ( only one shop - closed in the afternoon). Follow the road through the village which leads you back to the road where the Garden Centre is- just carry on following the sight of the sea. Hint: wear supportive shoes- some of the walk is a bit rocky .

Bit hot
Sep 2018 • Couples
We read previous review of Baranco de Mogan and having done a mountain hike on Sunday when everything was closed on our return, we decided to walk back up via the bakery "Pan de Matos".
We weren't disappointed, speaking in very poor Spanish I ordered 2 jamon and queso bocadillo uno cafe con lech and uno 7up plus some acua de teror all for €7.10 sandwiches were lovely and fresh, coffee lovely too. I highly recommend this cafe/ bakery and the walk if you are, as I was, bored with resort life in puerto de mogan.
