We went up on a Yellow Bus Tour, it is okay but I have been to better platforms in Austria, I don't think it's worth a special trip on a tour bus costing a lot more than we paid. We went up the following day to see the village below, Camara De Lomas a much more interesting place with a... More

Again we took the local bus, about an hour to the site, which was really the most interesting part of the day. The view is spectacular but a ver short walkway. There is also a good cafe.

This the point of no return. If you see the view you won't leave this place voluntary. Amazing and breathtaking.

Surprisingly access to the viewing platform was free. Well worth the trip - the views are amazing. The usual eateries and shops, toilets (a small charge) lots of bus and taxi parking but car parking a bit limited

We were fortunate to stay near Cabo Girão when in Madeira. So we visited on foot more th an once. There is a wide viewing platform which has a glass central portion. The highest sea cliffs in Europe. Stunning. At the bottom is a narrow strip of land which amazingly is cultivated. The views back over Funchal c 10k distant... More

There were cracks in one small panel which seemed to alarm some of the visitors. Narrow steep roads to negotiate to reach this attraction and parking was quite limited. Small gift shop and cafe close by.... More

This view point is amazing! The glass floor could be disconcerting for some but it's a must visit view. Simply stunning.

It's an amazing view, as long as you can cope with looking down through glass. Can't believe it's free, though the toilets aren't!
