Yes, Cabo Girao is wonderful place to experience 500 m view down to the sea, but after you have seen it once, next time it’s not so breath-taking anymore. Everyone should go there once, that’s for sure. But how about us who have seen it...More

We ended up here (no pun intended) when we did the Yellow hop-on hop-off bus tour. For me, looking down (even standing on glass) is no problem. However, be forewarned it’s a long way down. The glass walkway is okay, not like some spectacular ones...More

Don`t go if its rainy/foggy. Ìt was also a terrible wind. The souvenir shops have a broad choice though.

the glass floor is fine and not as scary as many around the world but it was free to visit so a must do - gift shops and cafes at the entrance with reasonable priced items

It wasn't as good as I imagined. We got here in a rented car (driving in Madeira is, let's say, interesting experience). The viewing point has a glass floor but it isn't completely see through which is a shame. The view is nice. Overall I...More

We went to this location firstly in 2003 and then again recently. The views are still superb and well worth a visit. It has changed beyond all recognition from the first visit when it was basically open with little tourist sidelines but now has a...More

Beautiful lookout over the ocean and Madeira. Go on a clear day. Interesting viewing platform. Be careful if you are afraid of heights. Cafe is right there.

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

Hello. I don't think it's really called the Noddy Train! It's really a 'road train' that starts alongside a coffee shop a couple of streets above the harbour. If you Google 'Madeira Green Train', you'll find it. I hope this... More
