  • Even the road to the Cabo Girão Skywalk is a little adrenaline rush. We are up the mountain by car and thus the serpentines. This is already an exciting affair worth seeing for flat-countries. Arriving on the skywalk you have to say the view along the coast and the view into the vastness are already a little intoxicating. All, of course, if not quite as many people or buses arrive. Looking into the depths is not a treat for all souls.

  • Nice walk, a platform with glass floors on the edge of a cliff. For those on a cruise stop, join a group and hire a van on the way out, it will take you to the best bridges, including this one. Beautiful landscape.

  • Similar to Grand Canyon glass platform, this cliff has a glass platform to step on. Having been here twice now, most magical thing about it is not the height somehow, its the incredible view and the endless horizon where the Atlantic sea blends into the sky. Can’t get enough of looking at that. Res it pretty cool too. There is a parking lot, couple shops and a cafe. But usually this is a 10-15 min stop-over for us. Take in the view and have a zen moment!
  • If you are afraid of height, don't look down, admire the view in front of you. A place popular with tourists. There are some souvenir shops and a cafe near by.
