  • Address: Cabo Girão, Madeira, Portugal
In 2012 a glass-floored viewing platform was installed in this already-popular lofty sea cliff on the southern coast of Madeira, making it an even more popular destination for visitors to this scenic island. While the glass observation ledge can be unnerving for those afraid of heights, visitors who don’t fear vertigo will experience unobstructed views of crystal clear water, rolling hills and emerald green farm land. Bring a picnic and admire the coastline away from the crowds, then climb the 289 steps that lead to Chapel of Nossa Senhora da Fatima before heading back into town.

Practical Info

Cabo Girão is accessible by tour and public bus. Stepping onto the glass-floored observation deck may be exhilarating enough for some travelers, but those looking for an even bigger rush can organize para-gliding and BASE-jumping from this popular spot.
