We thought it would be "just off the highway" -- but it did take a bit longer, but it was worth it. After a lot of hiking and hills during our stay in Madeira, this was a welcome very short, not strenuous stop. We did have to parallel park on quite a hill, but we managed. The overlook is free...

Worth a trip if you are passing by it. Not worth going to it just for it alone though. Spend from 5 to 15 mins. View is amazing, very high up. There is a reasonably priced cafe for drinks and snacks. The glass floor is reasonably small, hence gets busy it's also not that clear as it has small dots... More

A visit to Cabo Girao is essential, the views are fantastic and the glass platform enables you to see right down to the ocean, as if you were mid air - quite scary. Try not to go when there is a cruise boat in harbour as it tends to be very busy then.

We drove from Funchal with a scooter, fun road and a beautiful view at the end. The roads were fine even for 2 ppl on the bike and the scenery is beautiful all the way.

Stopped here whilst driving around the island as many good reviews. Easy to find and park. Astonishing views from the deck all around - great to look down through the glass and kids amazed. Definitely worth a stop.

Took the bus from Funchal to Europe's highest sea cliff. The bus cost €4.40 for a return and was an experience in its own right, trust me! The views from Cabo Girao were immense and it also has a glass bottom walkway. Grab a cheap espresso after and wait for the service bus back to town. Be aware however that... More

The skywalk is quite spectacular; not as commercial as you read in guidebooks. Yes, there are souvenir stands there, but the skywalk is free of charge. Fantastic view down to the vegetable gardens along the coast.

Despite my fear of heights I was glad I persevered with this. The views along the coast alone are worth the visit but looking down from the platform is an unforgettable experience.

Great view from platform on top of the cliff edge. Fantastic view of the terraces on the Madeiran coast, banana plants, etc. There is not charge to go onto the platform. We go the yellow bus.
