It's an interesting place to visit with all the terraced mountain sides, vinyards & agricultural views. The best part is getting there on the great drive along winding, twisting hairpin turns & switchbacks. The scenic overviews will get you shutter finger going.

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 .
