Great view - and absolutely free of charge! If you do,the trip, you definitely should be free of giddiness - the ground is made of glass which give you a perfect view to the ground. If you come by car: There are several dogs on...More

It's worth visit Cabo girao. Wonderful views of ocean. If you are afraid of height it's better to avoid glass platform ;) .but we enjoyed walking on glass. It was a good experience.

A must for all visitors to Madeira. Some of the highest cliffs in Europe with a glass skywalk and its free of charge. Toilets are 50 cents a go though 😉

Spectacular views from the platform although I didn't go onto the glass part of the platform. I still enjoyed being there and watched as some visitors ranged from brave and non-plussed to clutching each other as they walked along.

Another first for all of us, a glass bridge ..... This viewpoint and bridge are free - there is car parking, it is well signposted and accessible by public transport. Not for those with vertigo! An excellent stop off and good first step if you...More

Vertiginous drop to the sea. Very simple tourist attraction with pleasant cafe at the entrance. Fantastic view over Funchal.

I think there's an entrance fee during the summer as there are turnstiles. Certainly free in November. A platform has been built on the highest cliff in Europe, with a glass floor in one part or just metal strips on the other part. The sea...More

Many of the roads in and around the area are very narrow, just barely allowing two way traffic. That being said, that is true of nearly all the roads in Madeira outside of the main VR routes. I wouldn't say they are... More

Hello. I don't think it's really called the Noddy Train! It's really a 'road train' that starts alongside a coffee shop a couple of streets above the harbour. If you Google 'Madeira Green Train', you'll find it. I hope this... More
