This is a great place to bring your kids I think. Very clean and safe spot. We rode race bicycle here, that's NOT for all. You can take a small train from the fishing village bellow to, bus or rental car.

Stunning view, long hill drive but the place is one of the top 10 on Madeira. Definitely to be seen during the trip. Disadvantage: beggars on the entrance.

This is a great spot. You can walk out onto a glass platform and look down to the sea hundreds, if not thousands of feet below! Not one for anyone who doesn't like heights. There are usually locals there trying to sell embroidery etc. There are toilets there as well although you have to pay to use them!

Although it was raining and almost blew us away it was worth the trip. The view is amazing and the glass floor added some adrenaline :)

Wow wow wow. This is 100% worth the steep windy drive up. The views of the island and the sea beyond are incredible. The best I have ever seen so far on my travels. You really get the sense of being out in the ocean, on an island, and isolated. Then you can look down and feel your stomach go... More

Visited here nearly 10 years ago. Since the last visit they have built a large clear viewing platform where you look down to the beach and cliffs below. They have built new walkways and a large gift shop and toilet facilities. Did not see a cafe but may have missed this. Gets very busy with cruiseship tours and taxi's so... More

Worth a visit as you step out onto a glass platform which looks straight down to the sea a long way below so give it a miss if you don't like heights. Not too crowded the day we visited and fabulous views. We drove up to this attraction and were able to park close by.

Fantastic views, the glass platform makes it more fun. It can be busy up there when the organised coach trips go up, best to drive up on your own or have a taxi tour.

You can't miss Cabo Girao - it's the second highest cliff face in the world. Take your photos from the sea etc. but don't miss visiting the skywalk at the top of the cliff - there are plenty of organised tours & taxis will take you there. Watch out if you have vertigo, because you look down the sheer cliff... More
