This cache is hidden along the sandy paths between Praia Pequena and Praia das Maçãs. If you continue walking a bit after finding this cache you will also find an archaeological excavation, where there is a ruined tower from the XVI century, next to an Islamic structure which used stones from an old roman temple dedicated to the Sun and the Ocean.
The view is amazing, and a little after walking past the excavation you can look at the sea from one side, and the Pena Palace, on the horizon, on the other side. The coordinates for the excavation are: N 38º 49.447 W 9º 28.362
