After reading all the scary reviews on getting to Masca, we bit the bullet and visited in January. It is well worth the trip albeit you will probably spend longer getting there than the time you stay there. Great scenery and well worth the visit....More

We went to Masca for a visit and some hiking. It was a beautiful place! But the roads on the way there were through steep cliffs and very winding. The trail was unfortunately closed.

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 .
