Road - it is dificult and really challenging. There are a lot of curves, the street is real steep and not so width. Seems really dangerous, but I felt really safe on it. I loved it. But for sure it is not a road for...More

The road to this hamlet is horrendous, as in hairpin bends Squared, tho the surfaces are very good. Be prepped to meet buses. Masca itself is a dead-end, it's a road off the road thru the mountains. Doubtlessly, its photographic, but in an island of...More

Part of our day trip was Masca Valley. While many drive there I wouldn't do it. The road is narrow with constant bends. The driver would be unable to enjoy the scenery and if you met a bus coming the other way....good luck.

It is best to go in a smaller group and not travel by coach. Aimed very high for the tourists but was disappointing. Not much to see except the valley.

The views to this part of Tenerife were spectacular, the narow roads with hairpin bends the coaches manage to navigate, sometimes having to reverse can lead to sweaty hand of fear, but well worth the ride.

The valley is beautiful with magnificent view but the road to and frim the valley is a little extreme. You need to ride slow and be cautios for other drivers that are coming.

It's just so beautiful to be here. The views are amazing and there are many picture taking opportunities. It's a little strange though. You instantly think, wow, how can these people live like this? Because when you get there you've just driven an hour or...More

If you have a small car, you should go from Garachico to Buena Vista to Masca to Tiede. The drive is in parts very frightening but the views are gorgeous. The big hike in Masca was closed to the public but the small town was...More

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 .
