Due to the rockfall we were unable to visit the valley itself. But we'll be back one day to fulfill the valley hike too!

Not to visit if you suffer from car desease...but if you don't...can't miss it! After 45' of a tortous road you'll discover a pretty little village. If you're brave enough you can descend the narrow canyon till che Atlantic Ocean

Lovely little village, amazing view, and friendly people in the stores and restaurants. We enjoyed the time we spent here, but I expected more because it's really hyped.

Hi, you can book it in advance on the website of iHoppers or in bars and shops in Masca (look for the sign "Boat Taxi" outside of the selling points). It is 10€ per Person. Departure time of the boat is 13:30; 15:30; 16:30 .
