Geocache Description:

On the North Eastern corner of the Island and known as “The Island’s Gateway” Ryde has the largest tidal beach on the Isle of Wight. The Esplanade provides a paved walkway from the Western gardens at the foot of the pier, past all the seaside tack to the more peaceful wooded Appley Park and Puckpool to the east. For the less mobile, or bone lazy, a Seaside Dotto Train (but might not this year due to council cut backs) follows the same route. If you come by car, park a couple of streets short of the front to avoid parking charges but don’t over stay or you’ll meet our zealous Parking Attendants! There are several cafes along the front with Appley Gardens being one of the most popular.

The beach is vast at low tide stretching out into the Solent. Do be wary of walking too far out along the horseshoe of sand as incoming tides often beat holiday makers to dry land and provide the inshore lifeboat with extra work! When the beach is less crowded it is a favourite for sports especially kite flying and buggying on the beach and kite surfing in the water.

The cache is a 35mm cannister, located within reach of a wheelchair user.

This is an exceptionally high muggle area so stealth and time of the day will be important.

When this has been muggled let me know if you find the velcro so i can replace it. Cheers.
