After having made your own way down the notoriously dramatic trail of Masca Valley, we give you the option of making it a real day of adventure by kayaking back to the port. This spectacular crossing on a sea kayak allows you to really take in the sheer enormity of the “Giant” Cliffs as we row beneath them and also to discover more about the unspoilt natural surroundings of this part of the island. On the way we will stop at the bay of “Barranco Seco” to have a refreshing swim and do some snorkelling in the crystal clear water. Anybody with an average level of fitness can take part, we will adapt our pace to the group to make sure everybody can appreciate the magic of this virgin coastline.

- Snorkelling gear.
What to take:
- Swimming gear and sun cream.
- A packed lunch for the beach in Masca before the kayak activity.
