Not for faint hearted drivers!

A very narrow road with numerous hairpin bends and shear drops. A substantial part of the route was done in 1st and 2nd gear. It is a spectacular jouney.

This small Village is definetly worth visiting! So green and close to nature. Beautiful small streets. The taxi here costs only 25€ from Los Gigantes.

Masca is a must for every Tenerife visitor - but a true nightmare to drive to - due to lowland dwellers not used to serpentine driving. During the day we have been there, the traffic was so intense, that we could not find a reasonable parking spot along the road (not to mention the little town) so in fact we... More

Tiny Masca is quite a site! It literally teeters on the vey brink of a a knife-edge ridge and looks as if the merest hint of a puff of wind would blow the entire village off its perch. This a beautiful scenic drive! We found that arriving from Buenavista taking the TF436 to Masca then to Santiago was the best... More

The drive to/from Masca is not for the faint of heart. the road is thin and is squigglier than a snake. The canyons are impressive, and when we were there, the mist was rising over the peak and descending down to the valley. it looked like a fan was blowing smoke over the mountain peak....it was crazy. I left my... More

A beautiful valley, a must see, but be prepaired for a curvy road, meeting buses can be quite challenging. Be careful of the pickpockets.

We walked the Masca Gorge last week and it was an absolutely breathtaking experience. My husband and I are from Canada, so we are no strangers to hiking in beautiful places, but this was an experience like no other. We took a bus from El Medano (where we were staying) up to the start of the hike in Masca and... More

We arrived before 10 a.m. after reading other reviews about parking problems, and had no difficulties. Stupendous scenery, nice cafes...can recommend the cactus ice cream with palm honey. There are lots of signs warning of pickpockets but alas I still was robbed of all the euros in my purse. I should have worn my backpack on my front or used... More

If you are accustomed to hiking on a variety of terrains you won't find this hike particularly hard. Its pretty much all down hill and my husband and I were not out of breath once. It is a rocky trail however so there is a lot scrambling, using stepping stones to cross streams and a bit of bottom sliding. We... More

The nature is amazing and even getting there is breathtaking but no place to park the car and just to stop for a while to enjoy the views. Driving there alone is an adventure but I wish there could be just a bit more places to step out of the car.
