We went twice to Cabo Girão using our Yellow Bus 3 in 1 tickets, the views are amazing, your so high up and if you go on a cloudy day you are really in the clouds, felt magical, the sea below is so clear and...More

We arrived here after walking the levada do norte. On our previous visit it had been in cloud, but on a sunny day the view was amazing. Well worth visiting - but dont walk back to Camara de lobos!

Don’t miss it because it’s a different kind of view to the sea! You will be at almost 600m above water level with a floor of glass! It was for free when I visit it!

Thought the view and glass walkway would give a much more spectacular view than we thought - it was disappointing - the glass was not clear to take photos

This view point and well maintained platform with glass floor is sensational! Not too far to walk from the free car park! Nice coffee shop But 50cents for the use of the very clean toilets!

If you are not great with heights then this is not an attraction for you! The journey up to it alone gives you an idea of how high up you will be. We went on the yellow hop on hop off bus, would not fancy...More

When our original plans were thwarted on this afternoon we were offered an alternative by an enterprising taxi driver who took us to a levada walk near by to Cabo Girao and then onto this lookout spot. It's a spectacular view and a thrill to...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
