Another of Madeira’s beautiful views up high, walk on the glass floor and see below. There is a cafe and souvenir shop but nothing else to do or see but worth the quick visit

Views are fantastic and walking on the glass platform an adventurous option. Modern cafe and toilet facilities (50c!). Good road access and worth the journey for the views from the road on the way. Some Yellow and Red Tour buses include Cabo Girao
