Puerto de Mogán is a picturesque resort and fishing village in the municipality of Mogán, set at the mouth of a steep-sided valley on the southwest coast of the island of Gran Canaria. It attracts many tourists either to stay or on day-visits. Canals linking the marina to the fishing harbour have led to it being nicknamed "Little Venice" or the "Venice of the Canaries". Restaurants and bars fringe the marina and the beach front. On Fridays there is a very popular market which brings in tourists from all over the island.

Puerto de Mogán has very few buildings over two storeys high, and the government of Gran Canaria restricts new buildings taller than this.

Puerto de Mogán can be reached via a new extension of the motorway GC11 (opened in March 2013) which terminates just to the north, and is also on several bus routes.
