What’s Mogan like at Christmas? Only been May to October.
As nobody has answered I'll chip in to bump it by saying that it's likely to be just as busy as August, with festivities lasting until 6th January, which is the day that Spanish kids receive their main presents.
Mogan in December is possibly busier than May to October which is thought of as low season as December is the middle of high season their are lots of people looking for winter sun over Christmas/New Year
It's high season and is busy by day for sure - I guess evenings are quite busy as well.
Weather is normally good as you would expect
I have been in December twice, the first time we had reasonable weather 3-4 hours sun a day, with some cloud.
Last year we went and had great weather, hardly a cloud in the sky all day.
In December Puerto De Mogan will be busy, but is by no means crowded. The only day the resort feels crowded is Friday, when the market is on.
It's an absolutely lovely time of the year to go to Mogan and when we normally go each year. The atmosphere is wonderful, the fairy lights really pretty and all of the restaurants work hard throughout the Christmas and New Year period with a very busy but not packed beach. Year on year you see some of the same faces to say "hello" to.
The weather is normally a very pleasant 24 to 25 degrees and the sun is on the beach from 9.30/10am until about 4.30pm sometimes 5ish. It's cool in the morning before the sun swings over the headland and chilly in the evening when you need trousers and fleece/jacket to sit outside the restaurants. The only annoying thing is outside the Fund Grube store they have loudspeakers playing Christmas music on a constant loop all day, every day. Now I like a bit of Christmas music me, but there is only so much you can bear listening to "Frosty the Snowman" day in, day out on the beach! Hey ho it's still worth it though. Flights are expensive from Gatwick for the Christmas period.
Juliet B, flights and accommodation over Christmas are stupidly expensive and the weather is not guaranteed, I would be looking elsewhere around the world, if I was parting with silly money, Gran Canaria is great for a cheapy holiday and that's itEdited: June 12, 2018, 9:42 pm
Mike you are like a stuck record.
And that's being polite!
Some people are quite happy to spend their money as they please and buy what they want, when they want. Not everyone is chasing €1 pints as the ultimate goal on holiday.Edited: June 13, 2018, 12:28 am
Eh? like I've said on previous occasion's you wouldn't Walk into MacDonald's and pay £100 for a £1 cheeseburger just because it's Christmas? You would go elsewhere and get value for moneyEdited: June 13, 2018, 1:42 am
Mike you just constantly miss the point, value for money, especially when it comes to holidays is very different from person to person.
Some people want to go to a specific resort or even a specific hotel, it is where they enjoy going and if they are happy with the price they pay, that is all that matters.
Maybe you are jealous, I don't know. It just seems every time someone books a winter holiday to Mogan, you have to tell them they are getting ripped off and about you bargain holiday at the Cordial Mogan Valle. Yawn yawn.
I have stopped in Mogan the last 2 Decembers and it was worth every penny.
Why can't you just live and let live.
