Geocache Description:

Der erste Lost Place on Ibiza. Und weil er wirklich verloren ist: Bitte vorsichtig und wie immer auf eigene Gefahr. Die Koordinaten sind nicht die des Caches! Bitte den Cache sorgfältig tarnen.

Ibiza’s first Lost Place. And because it’s really lost – please be careful and don’t take any risks. The given coordinates are not the final coordinates! Please hide the cache carefully.

Als wir diesen Ort zum ersten Mal entdeckten, stand hier ein alter Mann und fischte. Obwohl es ein ruhiger Abend war, war er kleiner als die heranbrausenden Wellen – doch seine Beute konnte sich sehen lassen.
Sucht den Startpunkt bei der einsamen Villa bei den angegebenen Koordinaten. In 10 Metern Entfernung und genau in östlicher Richtung (90 Grad Peilung) beginnt der Weg des alten Mann hinab ans Meer. Das umzäunte Grundstück muss nicht betreten werden – kann aber und ist einfacher. Am Ende der Treppe angekommen seid Ihr in Augenhöhe zum Cache. Bitte die Dose wieder sturmsicher verstauen und mit Steinen tarnen.
The first time we discovered this place, we found an old Ibicenco man standing here fishing. He was dwarfed by the roaring waves – even though it was a fairly calm evening and sea – but his catch was sizable.
Look for the start at the semi-abandoned villa at the given coordinates. 10 meters away and exactly in eastern direction (Bearing 90°) you find the way from the old man down to the sea. The fenced in grounds don’t have to be entered – but can and access here is easier. Upon having arrived at the end of the stairs you are eye to eye with the cache. Watch your step and please replace the cache in a safe manner and hide it behind stones.
