Cabo Girão Tours

star-5
50 Reviews
Cabo Girão
With its dramatic sea cliffs soaring more than 1,903 feet (580 meters) above Madeira’s south coast, Cabo Girão is the highest promontory in Europe. The clifftop is one of the island’s most-visited attractions, with a glass-floor skywalk lookout point affording spectacular panoramic views.

The Basics
Many Funchal tours include a visit to the Cabo Girão lookout point, but independent travelers can also take a hop-on, hop-off bus tour with stops in Funchal, the fishing village of Câmara de Lobos, and Cabo Girão. You can also combine a Cabo Girão tour with a 4x4 off-road excursion along the coast or a tour of west Madeira that visits sights such as Ponta do Sol, Seixal, and São Vicente. 

For a different perspective, opt for a catamaran cruise or dolphin- and whale-watching cruise along Madeira’s south coast; you’ll sail beneath the towering sea cliffs and have the chance to swim or snorkel in the Atlantic. Or, ride a cable car from Cabo Girão down to the Fajas de Cabo Girao, the terraced farmlands that lie in the otherwise inaccessible bay beneath the cliffs.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • There’s no entrance fee to visit the lookout point or skywalk.
  • Facilities at the clifftop include a gift shop, café, restrooms, and free parking. 
  • Cabo Girão is accessible for wheelchairs and strollers.

How to Get to There
Cabo Girao is located about 9 miles (15 kilometers) west of Funchal; most visitors arrive by private transport or as part of a guided tour. Daily buses from Funchal or Câmara de Lobos, which are more frequent in summer, also run to and from the lookout. 

When to Get There
The Cabo Girao skywalk is open 24/7 year round, but it can get busy; in peak season (July and August), it’s best to arrive early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid the crowds. The most stunning views are at sunrise and sunset. 

Outdoor Activities at Cabo Girão
In addition to conquering the highest cliff skywalk in Europe, hikers can also tackle the scenic Levada do Norte walk, a 3.7-mile (6-kilometer) hike that runs from Cabo Girão to Boa Morte in Ribeira Brava. More adventurous types will appreciate the windswept cliffs of Cabo Girão, which have become a hotspot for paragliding and BASE jumping.
