Spend a day here with your camera. If you see a viewing point stop as there are not that many. Try not to go on a foggy day as the clouds obstruct the view.

We took the taxi to Masca and walked down to the beach. The walk takes 3-4 hours and is relentlessly downhill and difficult under foot. Definitely not for the unfit as walking downhill puts pressure on the knees and thigh muscles. We passed a group of holiday makers who were obviously struggling. We would not have attempted the walk in... More

If you only have time to visit one attraction during your stay in Tenerife a trip to the Masca Valley is an absolute must. Apparently named after the small picturesque village of Masca in the North West of the island it is reached by a long winding welll surfaced road from Los Gigantes to the south, via Icod, with an...

Well worth the trip either along the coast via Los Gigantes or like we did from a trip to Teide. Try and make the trip as its such a contrast to the resorts. You don't need to travel the whole length and be careful of the very narrow roads.

We wanted to trek Masca so took a taxi to Masca and trekked down the valley for 3 hours to the beach. The scenery is fantastic, the trek is easy in places and reasonably hard in places. Good walking boots are essential and walking poles are a good idea. Take plenty to drink. The water taxi takes you back to... More

We travelled from Costa Adeje at 7.45am on the Titso bus to Santiago de Teide where we had breakfast & wander. We then travelled to Masca village on the 10.50am mini bus which was full & not everyone got to travel on it. There are taxi's available. The narrow windy road to Masca was a scary experience. The walk from... More
