If you are scared of heights don't look down because you might do something bad with your underwear. Otherwise, the scenery is beautiful here and well worth the visit!
Looking through the glass floor , you realise it is a long way down, if you want to go down use the cable car.
Great climb up to the top of the cliff on a little "train." Stunning views from the top from glass platform!
Holy shxx - this place is amazing, spectacular and scary at the same time (especially when you walk on the glass part of balcony). The view you get from the Cabo Girao is stunning (as long as the weather is good). What amazes me over and over again is the fact that you don't have to pay money or buy a ticket to get there. It's free - yes, free! We went there several times and enjoyed every moment we spent up there. Every now and then, the balcony gets a bit packed (especially when a bus full of tourists just stopped...) but then there are moments when there's hardly anyone up there. Definitely a MUST-SEE on Madeira island!
If you're like me and you are ok with heights, but not greatbe brave and step out. When you first step onto the glass floor its a bit disconcerting, but push your self to do it , the pay off is fantastic. dont rush yourself and dont take out the camera straight away take a bit of time to get used to it. Its remarkable how quickly you do get used to it . In actual fact i was more concerned about the steel grated sections drop your phone etc. and if it falls between grate you will be waiting a while before it smashes. In the immortal words of Mrs Doyle " Go on, go on, go on, go on, go on" You wont regret it
