The drive up is so so scary. My heart was beating throughout. Once you arrive, you’re stunned. It’s breathtakingly Beautiful. So unspoilt. It’s like being in Peru. Definitely with the trip!

We went to Masca last year and managed to get to the sea in 3 hours (we were with our kids) This year it the path was closed and nobody can tell when it is going to be opened again( but anyway, highly recommended trip.

Beautiful walk down the path of masca. It is not for old people because it is a little hard. Be prepared for a long walk of more than 3 hours, but it is worth it

Just wanted to confirm as people are still asking and I was there today - both entrances I came across had the same sign on it. No mention of reopening. Still worth a visit for the views of you can handle the drive :)
