Geocache Description:

Praia do Garajau


A Praia do Garajau (nova localização) foi uma cache criada com o objectivo de dar a conhecer não só o Cristo rei existente no cimo da rocha mas também a praia e a bonita zona geográfica criada pela actividade vulcânica e erosão da ilha da Madeira.

A antiga localização (Picture 1) da cache levava-nos por um trilho ao longo da costa que apenas podia ser acedido quando a maré estivesse baixa. No entanto, devido a razões alheias a cache teve de ser retirada do local. Se tem espirito aventureiro, aconselhamos a realizar este percurso cuidadosamente, mas antes deve consultar o estado da maré AQUI.

Primeiro terão de visitar a estátua (Spoiler 1) que se encontra na coordenada fornecida, registar a data lá gravada ABCD e fazer os seguintes cálculos: N32º(A+C)(B-A).(B-D+A)(D+C-B)(C+D) W016º(D-C)(A+D-B).(C-A)(D-A)(C*D-B)

Após obter a coordenada, dirija-se ao local a pé ou de teleférico e conte quantos chuveiros existem a volta da pedra. (E)

Com os valores de todas as letras disfrute de um bom momento de praia e realize os seguintes cálculos da coordenada final: N32º(E-A)(E*C).(B-D+A)(E*C-C)(C*C-E) W016º(E+A)(C-A).(A*C-A)(E*C-E)(D+C*A)


The Praia do Garajau (new location) is a cache that was created with the purpose of, not only, giving the opportunity to know the Christ the Redeemer on top of the mountain but also to show the beach and the beautiful location created by volcanic activity and erosion in Madeira Island.

The old cache location (Picture 1) takes us through a path along the coast that may only be accessed when there is a low tide. However, due to other reasons, the cache had to be removed from the original place. If you have an adventurous spirit, we advise you to do this path carefully, not going before you consult the tides conditions HERE.

First you must visit the statue (Spoiler 1) that is in the coordinate given, register the date there engraved ABCD and make the calculations: N32º(A+C)(B-A).(B-D+A)(D+C-B)(C+D) W016º(D-C)(A+D-B).(C-A)(D-A)(C*D-B)

After you obtain the coordinate, go to the place by foot or by cable car and sum the number of showers around the rock. (E)

With the results of all the letters, enjoy a great beach moment and make the following calculations of the final coordinate: N32º(E-A)(E*C).(B-D+A)(E*C-C)(C*C-E) W016º(E+A)(C-A).(A*C-A)(E*C-E)(D+C*A)
