Obviously a top tourist attraction with busses galore. Worth a look if you are in the area. The Cafe is nice and the area pretty. Rather small balcony left us a bit underwhelmed and full of people at peak times. Get there early (before 9.30)if...More

Cafe and gift shop on site and toilets (50 cents). Free to park and usually space, although it can be busy with tour buses mid morning

Obtain a 'yellow bus' ticket - two, three and five days. Jump on and off as you see the bus. Bus takes you to a charming village with a few cafe restaurants, then you change to a smaller bus which takes you to Cabo Girao...More

The glass skywalk is amazing but quite scary to look down and see how far up you are... The view of the coastline is amazing. Highly recommended!

We travelled by public bus to save money and wish we hadn't bothered. The glass is covered in white dots so the photo opportunities are pretty poor. A nice view but not worth a 40 minute bus journey with a tired toddler. The cafe at...More

Not for the faint hearted. This cliff look out is the highest in Europe and is well worth the trip. The glass floor is disconcerting but it's a must see whilst in the area.

The visit was a stop during a tour. Fantastic views both around in all direction as well as down the glass floor. A lot of visitors and some souvenir shops and a cafe near by.

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
