Geocache Description:

Madeira North-Cost, near Boaventura. One of the nice spots in the world. Located near coast, about 100m above ground. Can be accessed with car. You need to walk about 100m (steep uphill) from the parking. Great view from up there.

A little pirate-like treasure chest (wood, about 15cm x 15cm) containing nice treasure. It is hidden in a hole in a nature-wall directly beside the path. There are different holes in the wall. The one the chest is in is about 2,5 m above ground and requires minor climbing skills or more than one person (that lifts the other) to get there. It is (or was) possible to see an edge (brown wood) of the box from the path but only from a certain angle. Because of the hight of the hiding-place and the difficulty it is unlikely to be discovered by non-geocachers. The chest contains a list of discoverers (you might be the first one) and some treasure. If you are a treasure-hunter perfectionist, please bring an old pen and leave it in the box, I didn´t have one when I hid it. Good luck! If you want a really great walk follow the trail uphill. It crosses the little mountain and is beautiful, not even entered (for god´s sake) in all the tourist guides.

Small note on cache maintenance: User Mario de Monti has agreed to act as a "warden" for my treasure. Thanks!
