It was an awesome experience for the first ride of the season. Thanks to freeridemadeira.com, I was able to rent a bike to make to trip. It wasn’t easy, haven’t encountered hills like this in Hungary before. You need to be experienced to do all...More

Glass floor over an amazing depth to the sea. Easy access by car, shops, cafe and clean toilets. Beautiful.

Highest sea cliff in Europe, 2nd Highest in the world. 1,900 feet and when you look down you feel every one of those feet! But an amazing view. Beautiful island!

Aside from obviously incredible views and the fact of the glass floor 580 meters above the ground, it's funny to see how some people enter here eagerly while the others weigh their steps on their gelatine legs :)
