Beautiful views, modern design, not for fragile hearts though. The terrace is specious enough to accommodate a big group of tourists.

Bit of a schlep to this location and once there 10 minutes is enough, though you may then have to wait for the bus back. Toilets a con at 50cents deductible off a drink in the cafe. Gift shops looked a rip off. But the...More

Amazing views from that Miradouro. Nice glass bottom deck which gets you to see underneath and realize how high you actually are.

Visited the Glass Platform as part of our West Side tour, yes, it has great views of Funchal and yes it has an 1800+ foot view through the glass. OK for a stop off but wouldn't want to pay to visit it.

We didn’t pick the best day to head up here as a storm closed in on us but not before we were able to appreciate the stunningly beautiful outlook from the glass platform! It was truly breathtaking! Don’t miss it!

We visited this twice, once when it was not as clear and once when it was crystal clear. It is not very big, or at least not as big as I thought it would be. It was free to visit. My only criticism was that...More

Can get the bus here. Can also walk if fit.(about 3 hrs from funchel hotel zone) Clear view straight down rather daunting. Assume it gets busy in high season as turnpike to control numbers at entrance. Friendly cafe with good views. Enthusiastic salespeople in shop....More

The word stunning is so often overused when describing nature's natural beauty. But Cabo Girao can use the title comfortably. It is a truly breath taking viewpoint. It is a nice winding drive to the top, free parking, free entry too. There a number 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
