Definitely worth a visit, one the best views in the island at around 500 meters altitude with a glass floor, which is awesome. Not many parking spots so could be best in the earlier hours or maybe a sunset.

Drove up and well worth the trip. The view was stunning and as it was early evening there was very few people about so we could take our time.

Massive drop down cliff to beach, a great sight to see and not one to be missed while visiting the area. The area was clean and tidy; usual shops selling tourist stuff and a couple of fornicating dogs as described in other posts! The walk out over the cliff was disappointing to be honest as it doesn't actually go right... More

We drove by car and at the top there's a very clean cafe selling tasty sandwiches and cakes. Several tourists hops but no one touting for business. The views from the cliff are spectacular. Amazing sight looking down through the glass walk way. A recommended experience.

Great experience. We took a ride up to the view point in the little green train which was only 7.5 euro per person. Glass floor was amazing, great views & lovely little shop at the top.

Best view of Funchai and Madeira coast as you're suspended over the cliff about 1900 feet above sea level. Great spot for pictures when the visibility is good.

My family and I stayed at this fabulous resort last week. 5 adults and 2 young children (5 and 3) We had a self catering, 4 bedroom villa with its own private swimming pool. The villa was excellent and had everything needed for a self catering holiday. Rooms were large and airy, 2 doubles and 2 twins and 3 bathroom/shower/... More

Absolutely spectacular, and walking on the glass platform was special, even if it did make me feel a bit odd! We went on the Yellow Bus tour, which was excellent value. The double decker bus met up with a minibus to take us up the steep hill, and we were picked up again 40 minutes later. Just perfect time to... More

This is one of the must visit places in Madeira. The view above the ocean is impressive as well as the view over the south coast of the island since this is 580m over sea level. Highly recommend!

This is well worth a visit just for the amazing views never mind the glass platform which adds to the excitement.
