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

Geocache Description:

Cornish coast (Talland bay).
Approach requires sturdy walking boots and a very AGILE ability. Strongly suggest the search to be commenced on an outgoing tide. The well being of the cache is not affected by tidal movement. Particular care MUST be taken if accompanied by children, and those of a nervous disposition. Please be carefull of the final scramble. To commence the search an ideal parking location can be found at "Rotterdam beach" Coordinates N 50deg 20.249 W 004deg 29.629

The cache consists of an ammo box containing a golf ball, a watch, a foreign note, balloons, a picture frame, some smiley faces and Mrs. Stainless travel bug plus the log book and pen.

REQUEST. 3/9/2012.
Having re-read many of the fantastic and interesting comments left by successful explorers I am tending to think that I may have underestimated its difficulty. I would therefore request that your own rating of the difficulty and terrain be left with your comments. I will take your views on board and make adjustments accordingly. Happy caching, Geckolegs

Having once again read through many of the log visits I have conceded that maybe I need to adjust the difficulty rating. I agree that once on top of the island the cache is not that hard to find, however in summer months when the bracken is at its maximum you do have to search, so for that reason I have downgraded slightly to a 3.5
Terrain however is a little trickier. I know it's a bit of a knee shaker and I appreciate that some intrepid cachers believe it should be a 5, but as Monkey Island is in Cornwall and not Katmandu I will change it to 4.5.

Does anyone know of the whereabouts of the Kings coin missing but unlogged. Thanks.
