A very pretty little village build into the sides of a ravine. It is a very nice place to visit but be warned the roads to get to it are very very twisty, with lots of tight bends. You can not see round the bends in many cases and it is not possible for a car and bus to pass... More

Very nice hidden village, good trip. Partly reminded us of Cinque Terre in Italy, just not near sea level, great experience :)

Stopped her during a tourof the island. It's a beautiful area, with wonderful views - but the road in/out is extremely twisty/turny. Pretty scary on a coach - especially when you're doing a 3-point turn on a hairpin bend. There is a restaurant/bar in the village, if you need a refreshment stop.

Went to Macsa Valley with a Millor Trip cheap as long as your prepared to sit through a demonstration of blankets etc. the scenery was lovely and the village itself was quaint.

One of the most wonderful places in Tenerife! beautiful valley and beautiful, small village. Roads are dangerous and very narrow, so pay attention when driving a car (and better hire a good car, not the cheapest one...).

Stunning gorge and excellent walk that takes around 4 hours. Make sure you take water, snacks, sun protection and good walking boots. Of course your camera too as there are many photo opportunities. Masca village is one of the most amazing places I have visited. It can get crowded with tour buses at certain days but it is still charming.

This is one of the most beautiful hidden villages in South Tenerife. If driving, be very careful of the twisty road up there.

First visited by car - most hair raising (literally) drive ever the first time and on a subsequent visit when I had to reverse back up hill to let a coach pass. We parked in Los Gigantes and taxied up to Masca village for 25 euros as quoted in order to walk down the valley to the Masca beach.We bought... More

First of all mind the road down to Masca. Highly dangerous! I have never seen such a steep descent and you cross taxis and buses. Take your own car if you are just visiting the village otherwise get a taxi to take you. The walk down to the beach is amazing, but you wouldn't want to walk back up! Count... More

The breathtaking road to Masca is for those with a strong stomach. It's narrow, it's winding, it's high and it's beautiful. The quaint village is small and colorful. Plenty of little coffee and souvenir shops with people welcoming us with a smile. We took a tour, I couln't drive on that kind of road. The bus had to back up... More
