Took a trip out to this attraction, well worth the effort! Lovely views and of course the glass staging! I felt a bit odd going onto it, but if you can overcome this, it is well worth it!! The view down to the sea edge is very picturesque. There is a shop, restaurant/cafe there as well, with plenty of parking.
One tip, use the toilet there BEFORE going into the cafe, you get your 50 cents refunded against your drinks etc!!

Amazing experience

This is definitely a must do whilst visiting Madeira. It’s the second highest mountain in the world. If you are not too scared of heights you must go on the glass platform! It’s a must! I was a bit scared but felt great when I did it! Fantastic!

Took the bus from Funchal. It was a cloudy day and Easter Sunday, so hardly anyone there. Enjoyed the views and managed to get a taxi back to Funchal for just 25 euros for eight people

Can be reached under your own steam or by one of the multiple organised excursions. This viewpoint with a glass floor is well worth the effort. The views are staggering but remember to go on a sunny day - any cloud will spoil it. Free for now but the recent installation of turnstiles indicates charges may be coming soon.
