Day trip to Tiede and Masca

Stunning views, glad we were in a coach given the road (great quality but severe drops at the side and tight hairpins) and the looks on some drivers faces coming the other way.

Decided to take a bus with a guide because I was travelling with my teenage grandson. Also not being busy with driving I could watch the scenery. The trip was through the Oratava Valley to the Teide Park and from there to the Masca village. The drive was thrilling, the views beautiful.

Beautiful village with beautiful views. No decent shops for souvenirs but make sure you take your camara as there is loads worth snapping. The green sides of the mountains reaching out to the ocean are absolutely breathtaking. The views are fantastic but the roads leading to Masca are terrifying you need to be brave, have a head for heights and... More

Masca valley is a "backside of Los Gigantes". It is really worth to visit and enjoy. Drive there is little bit scared but then you can walk along narrow streets, eat in a small restaurant with the magnificent view or to go down to the tiny beach.

This little village is an absolute gem. It is hidden away down a very hair-raisng windy little road, but well worth the heart-in-mouth ride. The faint-hearted would do well to take a coach trip - let the experienced driver negotiate the bends! once there, there are narrow steep paved roads to negotiate into the actual village,. Not advisable for people... More

Masca is a mountain village north and inland from Los Gigantes. It is a small and old Spanish village with steep cobblestone streets and lots of shops and restaurants. The drive is scenic, if a little scary. Walk around and have a drink and a tapa in a small restaurant then head back to the beach at Los Gigantes.

This is a must for visitors to Tenerife. Absolutely breathtaking! However beware of prices for food and drinks etc, they can be a bit of a rip-off.
