Description:

***DUE TO ONGOING RESTORATION WORK, MASCA GORGE IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE***

The walk through the Masca village and its gorge is truly amazing. There are 2 options: you can either hike down and back up again (about 6 hours in total and is only recommendeD to those with very good fitness level) or you can hike down then catch a boat that takes you to Los Gigantes. 

This allows you a chance to rest, have a bite or take a quick dip in the cooling sea (if time permits) before jumping onto your water taxi to Los Gigantes. Furthermore, the giant cliffs of Los Gigantes, with some places 400m high, are best viewed from the boat. 

The aforementioned is only a suggestion (typical route), feel free to plan your own hiking.

There are buses to catch if you do not have a car. Buses to upper part of Masca:
