Cabo Girao Reviews
Cabo Girau is a must-visit place. It is on the highest sea-cliff in Madeira and has a splendid view. The glass platform is terrifying, but it has to be done. more »
We have visited here a few times over the years and never get tired of the stunning views down to sea level directly below your feet viewed through glass floor. more »
Well worth the visit. Small glass skywalk is great. Spectacular view of Funchal to the left. Toilets are .50 Euro per person. Entry to the skywalk is free. Recommended that you rent a car and drive here.
A must see in Madeira. The view is breathtaking. It offers great photo opportunities here. It also sports a souvenir shop and a snack bar. Recommended visit
