Masca Valley, Tenerife

4.7
#3 of 26 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.  Using our world travel planner, Masca attractions like Masca Valley can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

    The history of Masca - involving pirates and history - is very interesting and the valley is a must visit to appreciate how life was back then. Do try the cactus ice cream when you are there!  more »
