“Very high”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

Took the bus from Funchal to Gabo Girao and after the breathtaking views I took the vereda back to Camara de Lobos. A very nice walk, about 10 km. You find the vereda just before the small coffee shop and small supermarked on the road where the bus stop.

“A must see attraction when in Madeira”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

At over 3 times the height of Blackpool Tower Cabo Girao views are absolutely stunning. Standing on the glass floor of the viewing platform certainly had a few visitors' legs wobbling!
Whilst it is not quite as daunting as the Skywalk over the Grand Canyon it runs it a pretty close second for a vertigo inducing adrenaline rush. Visit it on a sunny afternoon for fantastic views of The Madeiran coast

“WOW!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

This is a very high cliff, 580 metres I think?? There is a glass bottomed platform extending out and it is a wobbly leg moment but what views!!

“Pick a clear day...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

We were lucky to go on a tour of the West with www. prideofmadeira.pt and our guide Anton gave us 20 minutes stop here at this incredible viewpoint. This is definitely a MUST DO location. The views were absolutely amazing . Thanks Anton!

“Amazing view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

There is absolutely amazing view from Cabo Girao. We rented a car and drove there by ourselves. The road to there is also really nice:) Narrow, in bad shape, going up and down and serpent. Better check the map first if your driving there, the road signs aren't so good. But the view was spectacular indeed. There was some maybe local selling something crap in the top. There wasn't anything else but the view. Absolutely worth of seeing this place in Madeira.
