Masca Valley, Tenerife

4.7
#3 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 Masca trip site .

  • A narrow road leads you to the Valley where the hamlets are that Masca. Every time you the depth all the way up you don't know what you see. There is little room for the cottages and for parking lots. It is so very busy. Sure because there are also buses to make the tight turns.

  • Personally I found nothing so essential to visit, completely tourist, little parking for cars.

  • The road is not easy, a lot of corners but the result down is just amazing! The small village of masca is friendly. Then a hike in the Park of the teno in a few km of the. Day at the top!
