Puerto de Mogán plans to ban cars from the marina and the Playa de Mogán area behind the beach.

Visitors will soon have to park just inland of the motorway bridge and get a shuttle down to the coast. The Mogán local authority plans a 400 car parking area just north of the motorway bridge to accommodate all the cars.

The bold plan is a response to the increased traffic and visitor numbers since the new motorway opened in 2013.

The medium-term plan was announced by Mogán mayor Onalia Bueno during the opening of the new 5-Star Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Gran Canaria, Mogan. She stated that the local authorities are well aware that visitor pressure on Mogán is a problem and that they see its future are car-free.

The only people who will still be allowed to drive into town will be residents and workers.

Alex Says: We can't wait for this to happen as Puerto de Mogán would be so much nicer if all its streets were quiet and lined with cafes rather than parked cars.
