Coast magazine and Garmin join forces for nationwide treasure hunt

Treasure hunters from every corner of the UK should get ready for a summer of thrilling discovery as Coast magazine, in association with Garmin and the National Trust, launches the first coastal geocache treasure hunt.

In addition to monthly prizes, individuals and families who take part in all four Coast Treasure Hunts this summer could win a Coast Treasure Chest worth over £3,000. This includes a Garmin nüLink LIVE 2340 sat nav, a holiday in a Sea Garden Cottage at the Island Hotel on Britain’s own treasure island of Tresco in the Isles of Scilly, £500 of Crew clothing vouchers, a box of 12 coastal ales, a beachcomber bracelet and earrings worth £300 from Scarlett Jewellery, a National Trust ‘Coast’ book and an annual family admission pass.

Each month Coast magazine will print a set of clues and locations – starting in the April/May issue. Simply download this information onto a handheld GPS or use the opencaching smartphone app (for iphone and Android) and start hunting for the treasure.

Treasure hunters who find a cache have to make a note of the keyword inside and log it at for a chance of winning a prize.

For full details of the Coast Treasure Hunt, in association with Garmin and the National Trust, and to discover the first set of clues, check out the April/May issue of Coast magazine on sale 19 March.
