Geocache Description:

This cache is located at 391 m, in one of the best spots to enjoy the views in Algarve. The top of the hill is beeing used by telecommunication companies.

From the top of the hill of S. Miguel you can watch terrains from seven diferent Councils (administrative departments): Albufeira, Loule, S.Bras, Faro, Olhao, Tavira and Vila Real. And, of course, an huge area of the ocean.

The cache is waiting for you somewhere at the top, far enough from curious eyes so you can take your time looking for it. You should be prepared for some hazardous plants but I'm sure you can deal with them. The terrain is rocky but relatively plain.

IMPORTANT: if possible choose a day with perfect visibility to visit this cache. This is a key factor to fully enjoy it.
