Isla de Tenerife Things to Do: 625 reviews and 954 photos


Masca is one of the most picturesque parts of Tenerife and is the tip of the northwest that is covered by the Teno Mountains.
Deep ravines interlaced with lush green flora accompany the winding roads. The road leading from Buenavista del Norte passes along narrow hairpin bends towards the village of Masca and the road from Santiago del Teide is the most dangerous road in the island. It was until recently virtually unknown, but has now become a centre of attraction for those touring the island. The setting of the village is magical and its houses perch precariously on the narrow ridges of dramatic rock formations. Reputed to have been a Pirate hideaway, the small Bay of Masca on the coast is a three-hour walk from the village through stunning scenery. If you are driving to Masca dont drink anything but water.
