It's always the wait for these rides that gets me but once on board the experience is fantastic. The car holds a Max of 6 people and takes about 5-6 minutes each way for something like 3 euros per person return...bargain. Views are spectacular facing...More

I got in the cabin on the way down alone. The weather was OK so the cabin was going down nicely. It is a bit scary to see the cables almost vertically and descending close to the wall. Down there is a passage between the...More

Whether you ride the cable car or just watch in amazement, this plus the view from the nearby platform is a worthwhile stop when nearby. It is easily as spectacular as Cabo Girao, and without the crowds. The cliffs are a similar height. There is...More

Three Euro's buys you a return ticket down an almost 500 meters vertical cliff - amazing views from the top - possibly not one for vertigo sufferers. We loved the kitties at the top, the explanations and history of the cable car and the walk...More

This cable car will take you some five-hundred meters (1,500+ ft) straight (!) down to the beach where local farmers are growing stuff (not sure what). The climb and descent are not for the faint-hearted (you can walk, too) but when we approached this contraption,...More
