Masca Valley, Tenerife

#4 of 35 in Nature in Tenerife
A challenging walk that winds between craggy mountains near the coast gives you access to Masca Valley, with its beach and village. A hike up the mountain from the beach will reward you with shops that sell local products and a handful of bars. Walks vary from difficult to easy and provide spectacular views and bird watching. Wear walking shoes with soles that grip because parts of the path can be slippery. You can also reach the valley by bus to the village from Los Gigantes or by taking a water taxi, which drops passengers directly on the beach every hour and a half during peak season. Book a spot on a water taxi in advance or just grab an extra seat.  Put Masca Valley at the forefront of your travel plans using our Masca trip site .

  • Stunning place, but the trail still completely closed, no way down. Few years ago I've been there, ascending down to the beach and go back by boat taxi: it was wonderful. Few days ago, we were there, took a small walk, some photos, but that was all, because of the fences that are closing the valley.
  • Town is gorgeous. The road to get to the Masca town is beautiful. Nice spot to have a coffee or picnic. Hiking trail is closed with a metal door, no hikers are seen.
