Madeira is an archipelago filled with stunning landscapes and breathtakingly exuberant attractions that are certainly not for the faint of heart. The glass platform or so-called skywalk of the Cabo Girão viewpoint, overlooking one of the highest cliffs in Europe (at 580 metres above sea level), is one of the Madeira wonders on Instagram.
The incredible views of the city of Câmara de Lobos that extend all the way to Funchal are a treat to the eyes of all visitors who make that place an obligatory stop during their holidays on Madeira.
A visit to the Cabo Girão cape is a unique experience and the place of choice for those with an adventurous spirit. The Cabo Girão Belvedere is a great spot for paragliding and base-jumping. A breathtaking experience offering magnificent panoramic views over the Atlantic Ocean and the fajãs do Rancho and Cabo Girão, located at the foot of the cliffs, where cultivation on small areas of land is a common practice.
