How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Relatively easy cache in magnificent environment, close to the sea. Not too difficult, but sturdy shoes are recommended, because of loose rocks.

Tracking down this cache is a multi sensory experience. You will taste the salty misty spray from the sea, feel the sun burn, hear the sea waves break upon the shore while trying not to hurt your fingers searching for the cache in the moonlike-lava landscape (rumor has it NASA trained on Lanzarote for walking on the moon).
Driving the road through the fields is a magnificent start. Hope you don't encounter much outbound traffic.
Be sure to visit the desolate village also. In the village you can look at (and experience) the waves from close-by. We were impressed by the way the waves hit the shore and explode into the air (see pictures). Much better than when we were at Los Hervideros. Got us both wet too.

There are so many incredible views there, we re-hid the cache three times. The cache is a transparent box with green lid. Since we were new to geocaching, we did not have a stash note. Hopefully one of you visitors can print one and put it in? Please log all visits on the web site, since we will probably not return to Lanzarote within 20 years (so we can't read the cache's logbook).

Hope you enjoy the location as much as we did.
Keep on geocaching!
