Today, we released a new country/regional souvenir for Réunion. If you have found a geocache in Réunion, you automatically receive the souvenir on your profile.

Réunion is a secluded island in the Indian Ocean hundreds of kilometers away from the next landmass. Its remote atmosphere creates a tranquil escape for its visitors, and it is woven into the culture of those who live there. The coral reefs, forests, and volcanoes boast a lively array of species some of which cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Whether you want to lace up your hiking boots, strap on scuba gear, or lay out on the beach there’s never a geocache too far away.

Today we release a new country/regional souvenir for Egypt! If you have found a geocache in Egypt, you automatically receive the souvenir on your profile.

Along the shores of the Red Sea, about 500 kilometers (300 miles) southeast of Cairo, you will find Soma Bay, a sunny beach area full of activities such as sailing, windsurfing, snorkeling, and scuba diving.

For thousands of years, dangerous currents, strong winds, and a myriad of reefs have made this area difficult for sailors to navigate—which is why you will find several shipwrecks below the tranquil surface of the warm water (23°C/74°F). Many wrecks have become an oasis for aquatic life, but this one is especially amazing. It’s our Geocache of the Week.
