Geocache Description:

This is probably one of the best view sites around. This platform sits right above Coney Glen. Please stay on the paths.

The cache is in a safe easy to reach spot, don't go leaning out over the edge.

I choose this spot not just where everyone goes, but a little off, a bit quieter and more scary depending on how well your head can handle heights - or how much you trust the construction of the decks... The pathway will lead you along the cliff's edge from platform to platform, each with a vertical drop down to the ocean. Of course the Knysna Heads is what you came here for. There is information boards around, so I won't go into descriptions myself. Just enjoy the view.

Another cache is hidden down below on the rocks by another cacher. If you feel like it go for a walk or drive down there. Only the brave will attempt to abseil down!

Please put the box back in the slight crevasse you find it in. Don't make anything too obvious that may lay loose. Folks have scoured the area for the slightest pebble to throw over the side, I prefer to keep the cache and its contents above sea level.
Please make sure the box lid is well sealed.

The hiding hole is so obvious as to be almost in plain sight.

Original contain:
Self drive travel bug
Scripture verse
Logbook + pencil
Crazy bean

PS. The name is a bit of a wordplay that also refer to a well known piece of sanitary equipment, that constitute a hole in the earth to dispose off unwanted, ...err, excreta. As some may know, the "heads" also refer to a ship's toilet. So in the spirit of the moment I kept to sanitary referrals, remembering that this one flush twice a day!
