Geocache Description:



Las Palmas trail (1)


This cache is ideal for those wanting a cityscape view of
Las Palmas. The cache is located just off a quiet road between Isleta (Las
Palmas) and Casas de las Coloradas. It offers one of the best views of Playa de
las Canteras, the Port and the rugged Gran Canarian coastline. Because of the
nature and northerly position the city occupies, Las Palmas can be overcast and
cloudy so it is best to attempt this cache when the weather is clear and fine.
By equal measure, the cache site is particularly exposed so do ensure adequate
protection from the elements: sun block, a hat and ear plugs/cotton wool are
recommended.

 Getting to the cache site...


The normal way: tap in the coordinates and go-find!


From Playa de las Canteras walk east along the
beach and continue along the coastal path until the final street (Calle Coronel
Rocha). Turn inland and follow road signs for Coloradas.


From the Port/Intercambiador de Santa Catalina
catch the number ‘41’ local bus (Guaguas Municipales) and head to Coloradas. You
can either get off in the village and backtrack towards Las Palmas or get off
half way up the hill.
