Not for the faint of heart, the view point at Cabo Girao provides a marvellous vista overlooking the Bay of Funchal and out over the southern Atlantic. The glass floor allows you to 'hover' over the 500 plus metre sheer drop into the Atlantic. Beautiful spot for pictures.

Very busy attraction through the day but quieter late afternoon. Worth visiting to see spectacular views of the coastline and you can get some great photos if the weather is right, if the cloud is present no chance! Decent coffee shop on site and a couple of gift shops. You can still see the views without stepping out onto the... More

Decided to visit just as sun was setting. View was spectacular. Glass floor scary to start but soon over came. Must visit.

Very steep but fabulous views, went with a bus excursion and also viewed from a brilliant sea trip, both well worth it.

Amazing view through the glass floor. It even gets a bit scary for those among you who are afraid of heights, like myself. Tip: Try getting there early in the morning. We were there at approx. 11.00 am and it was packed with people.

Have to go there. View is gorgeous. To stand and walk in glass is crazy in first moment but 2nd time much more easy. Good street and easy parking. No entrance. Don't miss to visit !!!

Definitely worth a visit and you can get here using the blue tourist bus, you have to transfer to a smaller bus for the part from Camara dos Lobos. The view is amazing and we felt no fear or danger from the glass 'skywalk' which is only short but worth doing as you look right down onto the beach. It... More

Followed the GPS in the car and made it only to the cable car stop. Make sure you visit the spot sign posted by the brown tourist attraction sign posts!

After our visit last year we were determined to visit again. Although like many people I suffer vertigo but the perspective a beauty is so breathtaking all concerns about the 580 meter drop below your feet disappear. This is an absolute must visit. The visitor centre shops and restaurant are excellent

Easy to find. Nice view. But overcrowded with so many tourists. Nice shop with local products and souvenirs.
