Masca Valley, Tenerife

4.6
#4 of 36 in Nature in Tenerife
A challenging walk that winds between craggy mountains near the coast gives you access to Masca Valley, with its beach and village. A hike up the mountain from the beach will reward you with shops that sell local products and a handful of bars. Walks vary from difficult to easy and provide spectacular views and bird watching. Wear walking shoes with soles that grip because parts of the path can be slippery. You can also reach the valley by bus to the village from Los Gigantes or by taking a water taxi, which drops passengers directly on the beach every hour and a half during peak season. Book a spot on a water taxi in advance or just grab an extra seat.  Put Masca Valley at the forefront of your travel plans using our Tenerife trip site .

  • Visiting this day towards los gigantes, we wanted to drive to Masca. The access is tortuous, the track is quite narrow (idle crossing mandatory) but the panoramas are really worth the trip. Meal with a memorable view of the valley.

  • Spectacular views, a unique and magical place. Spectacular curves on a very narrow road in both directions. But it's worth stopping by or getting lost in this valley.

  • Very beautiful village, the views are beautiful, the road to go is full of bends but it is in very good condition. We gotta go...
