Masca Valley, Tenerife

(1,700+ reviews on the web)
Valley
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.

  • Beauty and rzede all terribly "hidden" country side located high in the mountains ... almost unavailable from the outside ... you can drive 5 km very narrow and serpentine (ekstremane experience for drivers;-). And the city is a dozen home plenty of 2 wzgorzach with a beautiful view of the ocean snippet ...

  • If you have to get to the Gorge from the North Coast (we lived in Puerto Cruz) get ready for the road of endless serpentine and if possible take money from seasickness-straight road segments are missing altogether. Almost all of the twists and turns at an angle less than 90o. In Santiago del Teide is a very cool-especially in the morning. In the village of Mask warmer. And the closer to the ocean, the higher the temperature. We were in the middle of March, the temperature difference ranged from 11oS to 26. If you are a child (my 7 years old, height 126 cm, average physical preparation) journey time will increase to 4.5 hours. Really dangerous sections 2-pass on a fairly smooth slope, holding onto the steel cable (about 7 m) and descend on almost smooth Cliff height of about 4 m, as such there is no trail, especially closer to the shore, and the road goes on zavalennomu large boulders Gorge. In almost all cases, the easier the path on the left side. The Gorge runs very many tourists-you'll never be alone. Animals found goats-4 pieces, Bay live domestic cats. In the middle of the road encountered sinichka. You will sing, then, will hint at a treat. Eaten with the hands. And ...

  • little road trip to the village of Masca. Very narrow street and dangerous but landscapes (stopping in places charge!) creepy. Super hamlet perched with also two small posadas where you can eat something. Then you can continue towards the north shore or return to santiago de teidee climb to the volcano. Highly recommended to an hour from southern tourist beaches. There is also a service that brings you to masca taxi and after the walk along the steep Valley to the sea brings you back by boat to LosGigantes.
