Geocaching in Malta

Last week we was away on holiday in Bugibba, Malta. We was lucky to have wifi in our apartment so using the Geocache app on my phone I searched to see of there was one local to where we was staying. To our surprise there was one just on the next road along.

We have found a couple of geocaches back home in England and couldn’t wait to see if we could find the Welcome to Bugibba one.

I gathered the boys around and read out the Geocache description

“Living in Bugibba I came across the thought it needs a Geocache near the Main Square, but also a bit hidden so the cacher gets a closer look into the back roads of the touristy town and can log undisturbed from the tourist-muggles.

Don’t be afraid of the dogs next door, they bark only”

The Hint was ‘Corsair’

We knew from walking around the local streets that Corsair was the Diving centre around the corner, so we headed on over to them.

It was on a short walk away, a few minutes later we was stood in front of the shop and looking up at a big shop sign.

Joseph put his hand behind the sign and felt around, he touched something hard and pulled it out.

Inside the box was a log sheet and few items to exchange something for.

The boys placed in a 10 pence piece and a luggage lock, they took away a little bead and a shell.

We love to explore new areas and geocaching is a great way of doing that, it’s exciting and thrilling, especially when you get the cache.

We did try to find another Cache that was a little further away but as I had no GPS on my phone it was a little harder and we didn’t succeed in finding it. We will try next time we are there and hopefully we will be adding another find to our geocache list.

If you like exploring, why not download the app and get finding some geocaches 🙂

  1. We’ve never done this but it looks like brilliant fun. Am going to look in to the app. We are just back from a Spanish adventure and I think the kids would have loved to do something like this. #CountryKids

  2. Fantastic! I’ve been caching on and off now for 5 years, and my last post was about finding my 100th! I need to download the app though, I think that would be so much easier than plotting it into a GPS! 🙂
