Walking on Cabo Girao

No visit to Madeira would be complete without exploring Cabo Girao, a coastal village that overlooks some of the highest sea cliffs in Europe. Cabo Girao’s indisputable main draw is its Skywalk, a white-knuckle glass walkway that offers panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. In the village itself you’ll find whitewashed houses and quaint restaurants with ocean views.
