The geocache “Ile aux Nattes – Lighthouse” (GC22PJZ) is hidden in Madagascar.

The main island is the fourth largest island in the world.  But this micro cache is hidden on a micro island off the coast of the main island.

The island, Ile aux Nattes, has a footprint and a population that are so small there’s no scheduled ferry service.

The cache owner, Urban Campers, suggest you hire locals from the nearest island to row you across.  They do mention that you could also swim the 300 meters between the islands.

Once you’re on dry land, the coordinates in your GPS device will direct you to a weathered lighthouse.

The micro is located somewhere around the building

According to the cache owners, the micro cache is located near an adjacent abandoned building.  Although the difficulty one, terrain two geocache was placed in December of 2009, only one person has logged the cache.

Will you be the next to log, “Ile aux Nattes – Lighthouse”?

    Thanks for nominating this cache it is truly a wonderful location. We spend a week on the Island in January and fell in love with the local population and its history. All in all we placed five caches on this little piece of paradise. It is a pleasant walk to the lighthouse with many photo opportunities along the way. When we got to the lighthouse we enjoyed a well deserved cold drink and decided it would be an ideal location for a geocache. We placed the cache and also posted a spoiler picture just to make sure no one misses it as it would be a pity to travel to this remote location and not find it.
    Happy caching, Urban Campers
