The view is amazing but it's good if you're not afraid of heights. It's pretty fascinating to watch the sea 500m below your feet. Entrance was free when we got there but it was hard to find a parking spot.

Nice cafe at the top. Amazing views. Take the wee train from Camara de lobos. On a cloudy day you should take some warmer clothing.

The views are stunning. There is no doubt more to see than just the sea cliff, unfortunately I didn't look around much as I was touring the island. However the experience of the views alone was worth it.

Not for those who have vertigo! On arrival (free parking) you head straight through an area with a lovely cafe, friendly staff and good prices, past some tourist tat shops and a very quick 1 minute walk to the viewing platform for the breathtaking scenery...More

We stopped off on an island tour. There did not appear to be a charge though there were gates, but not in operation. There was plenty of people there, but not too crowded. The view is amazing and the drop down is quite spectacular. Glass...More

Very good view, straight down for a very long way. Quite scary as long as you trust the glass! Or as one nice gentleman commented 'insured for one at a time'!

A couple of Euros to stand on a glass panel that hovers over a straight-down cliff face of 587m!! Wonderful and strange feeling when you first step out on the glass. Views along the coastline, in both directions, are staggering. Nice nick-nack shops and café...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

Hello. I don't think it's really called the Noddy Train! It's really a 'road train' that starts alongside a coffee shop a couple of streets above the harbour. If you Google 'Madeira Green Train', you'll find it. I hope this... More
