Geocache Description:


Esta cache encontra-se situada na Praia da Ribeira do Cavalo, uma das poucas praias de areia ainda selvagens que existem na península de Setúbal. Um autêntico paraíso!

Poderão lá chegar de barco, saindo de Sesimbra, ou a pé, através do trilho que está assinalado na imagem (cerca de 600 metros de caminhada) e que começa junto da coordenada providenciada nos waypoints desta cache. Sensivelmente a partir de metade o trilho encontra-se assinalado por marcas de rota pedestre.

A cache encontra-se escondida no interior de uma pequena caverna de um rochedo que está situado no extremo este da praia. Se a maré não estiver baixa é necessário molharem-se para lá chegar.

Entrem na caverna pelo waypoint fornecido e atravessem-na até à outra abertura (que se encontra nas coordenadas da cache). A cache está a cerca de 3 metros para o interior da caverna, a partir dessa entrada, do lado direito de quem entra.

Não se esqueçam de levar fato de banho e toalha, para aproveitarem a magnífica praia (as imagens falam por si)!

Boa sorte e desfrutem!


This cache is located in Ribeira do Cavalo Beach, one of the few still wild sand beaches of Setúbal peninsula. A true paradise!

You can get there by boat, leaving from Sesimbra, or walk through the trail that is marked on the image (about a 600 meters walk) and wich begins near the coordinates provided in the waypoint.

The cache is hidden inside a small cave of a rock that is located in the far east of the beach. If the tide is not low you'll need to get wet in order to reach there. Approximately half the way, the trail is marked.

Enter the cave by the entrance provided in the waypoint and cross it into the another opening (which corresponds to the cache's coordinates). The cache is located about 3 meters into the cave, from that entry, the right hand of those who enter.

Do not forget to bring the swimming suit and bath towel to take advantage of the magnificent beach (the images speak for themselves)!

Good luck and enjoy!
