Cabo Girao - Review

Rags of cloud and mist clung to the cliff and as the sun erupted on the giant palisade, it shone with its sheer curtains of solid rock in which tiny bits of quartz winked like tiny gems in the sunlight. Stand on the skywalk and watch the mystery of the ocean unfold below. The waves of the turquoise ocean softly crashing against the mighty cliff, like fingers brushing each stone with a gentle caress and the wind ushering them back into the deep. This is Cabo Girao, The skywalk on Europe’s Highest Cliff in Madeira Islands.

There are terraced fields below the sheer cliff which can be reached by cable cars.Cabo Girao is one of the most popular tourist attractions. After redeveloping wider roads more shops have opened up and plenty of parking. The skywalk in glass is exhilarating. It leaves the guests enchanted with the views.

  • At the cliff’s foot there is a small area of cultivated land called Fajas do Cabo Girao which were accessed by farmers in their boats.
  • Base-jumping, para gliding, are allowed at this point and it’s paradise for adrenaline addicts.Paragliders soar over the blue Atlantic Ocean alongside buzzards and sea birds.
