An outstanding place but unless you are able bodied this is not the place for you. From the car park it is a steep downhill walk where there is very little else except from the views.The journey in and out of the valley is not for the faint hearted as the hairpin bends on both sides with vertical drops are...

The road to this village of just 300 people has already a lot of beautiful views. The village is very small and we had a nice walk through...

This is a must see. Be warned if you are wary of heights it may not be for you! We had a superb bus driver though. The village is very pretty, and so peaceful.

Wear flat walking boots. Long walk so not for the faint hearted. Need to be fit and agile to walk along the path.

Climbed down there last March, with a tour and a guide, and I recommend it to go with a guide and an organization. There's some risk of loosing the path or slipping and getting hurt, and the place is hardly accessible by helicopters (though, once, a person was rescued this way). It's a tough trip that may require, for climbing... More

Incredibly spectacular mountain scenery in North-West Tenerife. You can get there on tours of course, but better by local bus 355 which you can catch at Buenavista, reached by an hourly bus connection from Puerto de la Cruz, or at Santiago del Teide if coming from Los Gigantes or Costa Adeje. I wouldn't try to drive the mountain road, you'll... More

We started our 3hr walk from Masca Village after a coffee and cake and a leisurely brows around THE most picturesque village you will see in your lifetime if you are lucky. I had HD walking sandals and Julie had a pair of converse trainers on, agreed not the best footwear but trust me we more than managed. Tip, buy... More

Simply stunning views, absolutely gorgeous, in my mind the most beautiful place in Tenerife. Bear in mind the winding roads are terrifying and there's a lot more big coaches making those hairpin turns than you would expect!

One of the most beautiful road on the island. If you like a little bit adventures drive you must go there.
