Geocaching on Holyhead Mountain

As part of Anglesey Walking and Cycling Festival, Walking North Wales was asked to provide geocaching days for local primary school children as a way of introducing them to basic orienteering and GPS. The Breakwater Country Park was selected as the best location and on Wednesday the 11th of June, 27 pupils from Pentraeth Junior School enjoyed a morning of an introduction to geocaching by the Walking North Wales team.

Stena Ferry provided an interesting back drop to the searching for caches on a perfect day.

Our first cache was deep in a nettle bank, but the second was easier to find and the children correctly identified the cache hidden in a fake log.
If you fancy having a go yourselves, there are plenty more geocaches in the area. Search for them on www.geocaching.com
