This is a beautiful part of Tenerife. Highly recommend making the effort to explore this area. The walk from Masca to the beach was closed for renovations in early June 2018.

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 .
