We were very grateful that we had a very good driver called Mateo that took us to Masca , as the road is pretty narrow , by moments you cannot fit two cars, we would not have wanted to be on a minibus. The place is perched on the mountains, and you can see the sea in the distance. There... More

If you ever stay in Tenerife you'll have to visit the Masca. I've been there by car and on guided tour by bus. Travelling by bus gives a lot more information than travelling by car. The bus stops here for a while, of course. It is just amazing and so beaatiful this place. Very few people live there now cause... More

Unless joking a tour, driving to Masca is the only option. There are lots of narrow winding roads and some cars go fast. If you are not confident about driving, it's better take a tour and enjoy looking at magnificant views!

As previously described,the roads are narrow and not for the faint hearted driver.Takes about one hour from Los Cristianos.We got there about 10am and there was plenty of parking spaces.At noon there was none and you would have to drive away without visiting the village.Popular with coach parties it would be very crowded later in the day I imagine. Crowds... More

We had a little trouble finding the right turn to enter the valley, but once there the views and the experience was really impressive. The valley and the drive over there are just beautiful. I don't recommend this to inexperienced drivers though - often the roads are too narrow for 2 vehicles to pass each other so you'll end up... More

The journey there and back isn't for the faint hearted! Very narrow and windy road, we met a coach enroute, rather a scarey experience. Well worth the journey, pretty village with amazing views to the coast and mountains. Good cafés and restaurants too.

Then the trip started: There is a 30 min taxi drive (23-25EUR) to Masca Valley, where the track starts. Equipped with good walking shoes, water, sandwich and... More

Great place for hikers. Even stopping by for a drink would be worth while visiting here. If you go there by car, you need to be careful as the parking space is so limited and police are around.

Do this walk. We took a taxi from Los Gigantes (23 euro). The road to Masca is not easy to do. Many, many bends... Take a bit time to see the village of Masca en do the hike (tip: on a certain place nearby a waterfall you have to go to the right). The hike is somewhat adventurous. But fit... More

We were staying in Puerto Santiago on the West Coast, so caught the local bus to Santiago del Teide, where we had a coffee and booked our return boat trip from Masca at the Masca Trekking office (€10 each). They also arranged a taxi for us to Masca which cost €10, and saved an hours wait for the next bus.... More
