Diego next drove us to the highest cliff in Europe at 580 meters, about a 1000 feet. Miradouro do Cabo Girao has an overlook that extends out over the void and is a popular tourist destination. Photos from site and from sea looking back at the cliff.

Even with crowds, you can appreciate the views of the lush island. Early morning is a good time for comfortable viewing. It's not necessary to step onto the see- through walk to get wonderful shots of the vegetation and sea, but it's fun to do.

It may be a bit of challenge to avoid the crowd - and pls take into account that this is only one of few great viewpoints on Madeira - but I would definitely recommend to go there. The platform enables you to enjoy unrestricted view on this nearly 600m marvel of nature. Do not go early in the morning -... More

A unique place to visit if you are some amazing views from a man made skywalk. The views are amazing if unsure of heights don't look down. Not a lot of other attractions near by but a most if visiting Funchal.

With the fear of sounding blasé, it was a nice view and a fun watch down through the glass window over the cliff face, but i wouldn't have gone there unless I had a car and had gone through the rest of Madeira already. Accidentaly that was the case with us, we had a car and had already gone through... More

Amazing views and well worth overcoming the fear. The metal platform leading to the glass one was in fact more scary than the glass one, so if you can cope with that go for the big drop. I expect that the sun rises and sunsets could be amazing.

Great lookout! Glass floored viewing platform. But also a concrete viewing platform for the less adventurous. A must see in madeira. Plus its free! There's a cafe and souvenir shop close by so its a nice pit stop for a coffee.

I think this is the second highest sea cliff in Europe. We stopped here as part of a 4wd tour with Up Mountain Madeira and were not disappointed - got some great photographic shots!

From the platform on the top (free entry) there are stunning views on a large portion of the coast and the ocean.
