Came here with the west island tour on a cloudy December day and could not see a thing. Make sure it's a clear day when you visit.

The beautiful cabo girao is one of the highest in Europe , from here you can admire the sheer cliff leading up to the blue sea and pebble beach at the bottom , even more impressive with the glass floor and wall , really stunning

stand atop the highest sea cliffs in Europe half kilometre up. amazing views and stand on the glass floor for a floating experience. this is usually included in the minibus western tour so check out the tours when planning your holiday. Free to visit this viewpoint by the way. Toilets you pay for! :-D

What a wonderful vantage point the glass platform give a dizzying view of the shore below some 580 meters below I might add with a lovely cafe and 2 souvenir shops it's a trip not to be missed especially via the Green Train from Camara De Lobos well worth 7.50 Euro round trip Not to be missed

We had not visited Cabo Girao since the viewing platform had been erected and although it looked good the glass was almost opaque so getting a good photo through the glass was virtually impossible. The views along the coast from the platform are great but we made the mistake of visiting when there were 2 large cruise ships in so... More

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.
