Awesome views. Standing on a glass floor and seeing everything beneath you. View of ocean and villages and mango plantations at the bottom.

When we visited looked like it had been renovated and there are a couple of new additions suggesting they might start charging for visits soon. As it was free we went to have a look and it's certainly worth it.

Definitely worth a visit, it was very pretty when went up. The drive up is really pretty also. At the top is a cafe and a few shops.

Nice view from the lovely glass platform. Not much else to do but browse a huge gift shop. Worth a quick look on a day tour? Not essential compared to other outdoor attractions. Access is by bus from Camaro do Lobos fishing village

We visited this viewpoint twice whilst in Madeira. The first time we drove up - which was nice, not too tricky and easy parking. The view is wonderful and the glass plate walk, although scary, is certainly worthwhile as it really emphasises how high this...More

High mountain cliff overlooking the Atlantic ocean. Apparently the second highest cliff in the world (?). Views are nice and the platform with see-trough floor is cool. Worth a visit if you are nearby!.

It's a wonderful spot to 'see' the impressive way some fruitraising beeing done on a cliff... The view is spectacular, the road up to the spot marked well and very good but steep. Iz is certainly a spot you shouldn't miss.

We tried to find this spot on our tour around the island and missed it. We met people from Belguim who had been there and saw their pictures. We knew we had to go. Amazing views. My husband is scared of heights but he was...More

Very interesting views of the tallest cliff in Europe, 589 m over the ocean. It is quite a drop and the view is impressive through the glass floor of the skywalk in the viewpoint, but the feeling is quite safe, there is no impression of...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
