We were already in the hood, so decided to take a look at this lake. That was not a wrong decision. The area has picknick tables and bbq's, free to use. Which the locals do, as they bring their food and drinks with them. We...More

Really lovely place with a lot of opportunities to sit and relax with all the beauty around you. You can go here also for a picnic (a lot of grills also). Very well-equipped place (toilette, grill, water, litter bins, parking lot, etc.)

This is a pretty spot well set up for tourists with toilets, BBQ pits and walks down both sides of the lake (but you can't cross the barrage and go all the way round). Popular with locals at weekends. Camping is possible.

The road from Mogan was spectacular but not for the fainthearted as it was narrow and very bendy. We enjoyed visiting the town of Mogan(as opposed to the Port which is also well worth a visit) where we saw some delightful mosaics of Canary costumes....More

When I was there, other people were fishing. However, I think you're legally not allowed to actually keep the fish. I think you're supposed to put it back in the water.
