Geocache Description:

The cache is hidden near a scenic cliff in the Costa Brava region of Spain (about 100 Km. North of Barcelona). The trail is short but it passes through an area heavily overgrown so you will need some protection for the legs, arms and head.

The best approach is from the road linking the villages of Palafruguell and Begur.
At approx. N41º 56.214' E3º 11.835' you will find an unpaved road downwards East, signposted "Aigua Gelida" and "Cami vell de Tamariu".
Approx. 900 meters from there you take another unpaved road to the left (see picture).
Then you can leave the car under a group of pines to the left of the road.
Just some meters ahead there is a big pine (see picture) where you leave the road and take a path to the right, passing a wire that prevents car passing.
Just to the right of this point there are some ruins (Mas Llor)and near it a big oak tree (Alzina del Mas Llor).
Then you have to walk leaving an olive trees field to your left until you find a path in the upper part of another open field.
From there you begin to ascend following a path sometimes almost hidden by bushes and overgrown shrubs.
The crest of the hill is rocky and the view spans several cliffs, coves and beaches on the Mediterranean Sea.
The cache is in a translucent plastic container, near a rock, under a small pine and partially covered with pine spikes and leaves.
