Every time I am to Tenerife it is a must to go to Masca Valley. It is breathtaking and to come down to the center one always feel the special atmosphere of beeing in the center of something *galaxial*. Go there and be *cleaned*!

See Masca walk for review ! A must do for nature lovers ! The view from high up road ( 436 ) from Santiago Del Teide is amazing and the view from the bottom of Masca is well worth the difficult walk !

The views in this little village of Masca were gorgeous. Simply beautiful. You can also stop here for some food and drink and simply enjoy the breathing view. It is a must see. The only thing is getting there and back as you have to be brave driving through a lot of narrow roads and bends way up high right... More

It was really something! I hope I will see Masca valley again because I have never seen something so much impressive like this. The rocks are very huge so you feel like they are closing around you. It's the most beautiful "attraction" on Tenerife.

The drive from TF1 is a little hairy and made even worse when a coach is trying to force you off the road. When you arrive at Masca the views are amazing if you can get parked. We parked about a mile from the village up the top of a hill and walked back. Very few spaces for such a... More

We drove all over Masca and we simply ended up wowed out. We didn't do any of the walks as we hiked through Teno and were tired, but it was impossible to miss the beauty of the place. There's plenty of stops and one of them has a cafe with quite the view too, so if you don't want to... More

Just drive there ! If you are not afraid of a one way road above high cliffs with traffic in both directions... It is amazing that such beautiful landscapes can be found in Europe. Don't stop in Masca. Drive through to Buenavista. I did it and experienced the micro climate change with clouds running down the mountains. Take time to... More

We hired a car and made the trip to Masca up through the mountains. Not for the fainthearted or inexperienced driver but well worth it. Amazing views and breathtaking scenery. The only thing is we arrived about 6:30 pm and all the restaurants were closed? Not sure why. Maybe we just chose the wrong day (saturday), or maybe it's more... More

Although Masca is just a small little place it is the drive there and the scenery that makes this place special. I would take a tour bus there as the road is busy and only one lane. There were many places where cars had to back up in order to let a tour bus through. Make sure you buy fruit... More

There are few places in this earth that really take your breath away. This is one of them. I think it was the excitement of the bus ride and the information we'd heard about how beautiful it is, we wanted it to be special. It was off the scale. If you're down that way. It's a must. A treasure trove... More
