Cabo Girão

Estrada 1 De Julho, 2, 9300-081 Câmara de Lobos, Portugal

Located on the southern coast of Madeira, west of Câmara de Lobos, Cabo Girão is Europe’s highest cliff and site of a transparent glass skywalk cantilevered over a 580-meter drop. The viewpoint isn’t for the faint of heart but is worth an early morning visit for views of the sun rising over the bay.
