Masca Valley, Tenerife

(4.7/5 based on 1,600+ 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 ... land of pirates ... Happy island within tenerife. I have been there several times and on each visit I discover a different side of pueblo. It is hard to explain ... you have to go

  • The most exciting is getting there and back from this place-mountain hairpin is a challenge even for an experienced driver, especially as you have to take the bus. The village itself is a few buildings where there are shops with local products and souvenirs, restaurant. Unforgettable views. Even in winter, there is a problem with parking-we were in the afternoon.
