At south of the well known Monte Clérigo beach are Medo da Pipa beach and Medo da Fonte Santa beach. The term "medo" (which direct translation mean "fear") is due to the location of the two beaches are just next to the "medo" that gives them the name.
Medos are simply dunes. In this case are consolidated dunes of aeolian sandstones of carbonated cement, formed over time by wind action in that area.
These beaches are visited mostly by fishermen as they have a difficult access. They haven't support structures and are n't monitored.
In the beach you can see many sources of fresh water that are born there and that you can drink.
There are in the dunes, at certain times of the year, some small white berries (the background image of this page). They are a small edible fruit called Camarinhas.
This cache takes you to visit these two beaches in a short walk, advising you to use comfortable shoes. Leave the car in the parking area and depart from here to the first point.
Use only the existing paths in the dunes. Be very careful with the tides. If you have problems with heights or do not feel confident in loose terrains do not do this cache. Your safety first.
Leave first step as you find it.
This cache is in the Natural Park of Southwest Alentejo and Costa Vicentina. Then do not forget to help preserve nature and natural beauty of the place, any garbage you have find on the beach or in the dunes please take it to the container in the car park - Cache In, Trash Out!
Due to the local conditions this caches gives you some work and was made even for that. It's not a drive-in cache ;)
Good luck and have fun!
