Mogan Gran Canaria : The most picturesque town with a nice beach

The beach of Mogan Gran Canaria is located in south of the island of Gran Canaria and has many different types of sand and rocks of different shapes and sizes all along the coast. This beach is the youngest of the island. Its structure gives it a special character and appeal. Originally, it had a combination of yellow sand and black pebbles, and was open to the currents from the east. It couldn’t keep the sand on the coast all the time, so the Mogan city council designed a major project to completely change this. Today, the beach has yellow sand which is thicker than the sand of Playa del Ingles. It easily sticks to the skin , but it is easy to clean off when one is leaving the beach.
