Visiting masca was part of our tour to Tidie national park. We went the Tide first and the last point was Masca. It was very exciting travel. We went by a bus. The roads were very narrow and scary. Both sides have very big mountains and valley. It was very narrow pass and the bus had to take three times... More

We went to this place two times. First time we went on midday with a rented car. And that was a mistake. Because in the middle of the day there is a lot of tourist and there is almost no place to park the car. You are lucky if you find one. But we wasnt and couldnt find it so... More

A unique trip along a twisty narrow road which must have been a challenge to build. Good views all along the route some very close encounters with other vehicles. The village was well worth seeing but parking a big problem at peak times.Anice cafe and shop in the village.A photographers delight.

One of the great experiences on Tenerife, to drive down and through this valley. As others have said, the road isn't that scary as you really can't go fast and there are barriers to stop you falling off! It is, though, narrow (maybe 1.5 cars), steep in places and very twisty ... and it's used by buses and tourist coaches.... More

This place is a hell of ride up and down a mountainside into the valley. Masca is a tiny village with access to the sea although we did not venture that far. Said to be a Pirate hangout or the villagers traded fruit and veg with ships passing by,although you can't see the village from the sea. Tourism is its... More

We enjoyed the serpentine road , we did not find it that dangerous at all as some people described,you can not fall down the cliff because all the road has concrete blocks.You just have to be careful and every now and then stop to let pass the cars as it is narrow, that is all, probably a bigger danger are...

We went on a coach excursion too mount Tiede and visited here as part of it. So glad we did as it was one of my highlights from visiting Tenerife that we would have probably missed. Tryley beautiful! Even the scary Masca road wouldn't put me off visiting again!

The drive is a bit scary but not so bad that you should not go (worst case, you might end up scratching the car but not going over the edge (there are guardrails)). Just be nice to fellow drivers, keep as close to the side of the road as possible and keep in mind that it's easier to go down... More

This review is about the drive to Masca from Mt.Teide National Park. My advice: if you like car-sick inducing switchbacks and hairpin turns on death-defying roads where tour buses and cars meet head-on on one lane roads with no shoulder on one side and steep cliffs on the other, then this is the place for you! We had a rental... More
