Visited the viewing platform at Cabo Girao recently. There were no crowds when we were there in mid-morning. I must say I was slightly under-whelmed by the experience. The glass floor was rather 'cloudy' and well-scuffed by so many visitors. The best view was out...More

Fantastic place to visit, but you do need a good head for height, as it is the 2nd highest sea cliff in Europe! Wonderful for sunrises and sunsets. Ok for sensible teens but avoid if not!

Absolutely gorgeous views especially on a clear day .There is a lovely coffee and gift shop near by too. Recommended for wheelchair users too.

If you haven't got a head for heights this is not the place to visit. The highest cliffs in Europe and a glass floor to walk over a drop of nearly 7,000ft.

We had to take two trips up to the Cabo Girao. No good on a cloudy day. Great views with the added attraction of a glass walkway and its free! We took the Yellow Bus up to the top. That was a experience in itself....More

Island trips around the west of the island stop here or you could DIY this visit with a hire car. 1500ft and a glass platform allowing you to step over the edge. The usual opportunity for refreshments and souvenirs and conveniences are available at the...More

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
