Found it btrodrigues found Aivados [VN1000Fontes]

Tuesday, August 26, 2008Beja, Portugal

We've been around for a while but never managed to get the right access path to the beach. Somewhat, it didn't make sense to me the only way there (as shown by the Garmin) was departing from south, from the beach. The previous logs confirmed that theory... And the Google Maps thingie on the phone showed there was something heading there from Ribeira da Azenha, but the damn thing is not GPS enabled and showed no coordinates, so we needed to have additional homework done (or a new GPSr, eh) if we wanted to reach it properly.

Luckily, the owner had an eye open and dropped a SMS with the coordinates right when we were quite close, so we turned right on the suggested coordinates (that's N37 48.110,W8 46.320 for all you unfortunate CN9 and below owners) and followed the GPS arrow from then on, reaching the lovely beach several minutes later.

Quite lovely views indeed stretching north and south, good hiding (protected by a giant lady-finger-biting-bug) and an amazing (and different) end of day in a place we hadn't been to previously. Thanks a lot.

infoThis is the original cache type consisting, at a bare minimum, a container and a log book. Normally you'll find a tupperware container, ammo box, or bucket filled with goodies, or smaller container ("micro cache") too small to contain items except for a log book. The coordinates listed on the traditional cache page is the exact location for the cache.
