If you are a keen hiker then I would really go for this but if not just take caution as it is a very hard walk. Wear the right sports hike trainer or boot and plenty of provisions as you will need them. Don't wish to scare but when we went the weather was around 34 c and still the... More

We visited Masca in an afternoon, after visiting Teide and I wish we could have stayed for the entire day. The road is an adventure in itself - narrow road, a lot of U turns, abrupt - but the spectacular views are worth it. We stopped several times to admire everything (and take some very Instagram-worthy shots :) The village... More

We visited masca towards the end of our excursion. It was a very relaxing village. Although the travel was very steep and was entertaining as we get out driver doing a full turn on the hard turns. But yes the little village is pretty with some great history.

We visited Masca in the afternoon after a visit to Teide national park in the morning. We had read that it was a beautiful place and worth visiting so we decided to have afternoon tea there. It's true it is a very beautiful place, serene and picturesque. Stunning scenery that's worth seeing. The only warning I would give is that... More

See Tenerife from another Point. Get in heart of mountains and see small village in amazing surrounding. There is not much space for parking. Take pictures from points of view which are next to the road. Be careful when driving. I wouldn´t dare to drive there in rain... You can walk from Masca down to the sea side, but it´s... More

Recommend to everyone who likes an interesting ride and a great view. If you are really afraid of steep small roads I would say: "take a deep breath, the view at the end and along the way is worth it".

WOW..... The winding road leading to the top of the mountain and down into Masca are at times tight to pass on coming vehicles but definitely worth it as the views are just fabulous. There are many pull in places for you to stop and take in pictures of surrounding or just to gaze in awe. Be aware that this... More

We went Masca on the way to visit the dragon tree. It has some of the most beautiful views I have ever seen. You climb up some of the tightest winding roads to get there but it's well worth it. A small village tucked into the side of a mountain. There is a restaurant and some small shops but the... More

Scared drive up to Masca, roads are fine, just so steep, worth the visit as the view from the top is great, right down the valley and flanked by mountains either side, would recommend at least one visit to this place.
