    Masca has lots of different restaurants. They offer local food as well as the usual "international" food. One thing all of the restaurants have in common are the high prices....

    Bendy roads to Masca

    by mabu Written Dec 8, 2002

    There are two very narrow and bendy roads leading to Masca.
    So probably you will get there using a car, it's a nice drive if you like bendy and narrow mountain roads. If you don't like that kind of driving it will be a nightmare!
    There are organised Coach tours to Masca too. And of course there is the public bus wich will get you there cheap and safe.

    Another way to get there is a boat from Los Gigantes to the Masca valley and then a 4 hour walk.

As a collector of Cacti I was intregued when I saw a pot of Cactus Jam, now I`m...

Masca Warnings and Dangers

    It never ceases to amaze me the amount of people that refuse to put on suncream and opt for nothing or even baby oil or cooking oil in the naieve belief that it will help them tan quicker. It will not, it will only make you burn and then peel quicker.A high factor sunscreen is always a good idea, a healthy white skin is far more attractive than...

    View towards the sea.

    by mabu Written Dec 8, 2002

    Favorite thing: Try to get there early or in the afternoon. The Village is only small and around midday the most tourists are there and make the place a bit crowded.
