Masca Valley, Tenerife
(4.7/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
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.  Using our world travel planner, Masca attractions like Masca Valley can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Masca is the starting point of a very popular hiking route. Be careful: it seems easy to get to the beach of the ocean, but the way back may require 6 hours walk! Maybe better to order a taxi... 
  • Masca Valley views are amazing. Variety of landscapes. It is incredible. That Yes, worth the recommendation to the driver. The road is very winding, with bends and on high slopes. Be very careful and if the day is sunny better. We got out and immediately fell clouds that took everything and not seen anything. Be careful, it is worthwhile.

  • Definitely would not recommend driving oneself! Leave it to the very experienced Coach drivers as there are several hair pin bends to manoeuvre whilst climbing to the top of Masca. When you get there,...  more »
