Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Pinos Isle Secrets Locations
The Pinos Isle treasure map, is the only secret you will find on the island. The cadaver carrying the map is close to the chests in the northern area.
Look for the cadaver near a downed column, right below the said chests. Retrieve the map to see the following coordinates: 327,334. The AC4 Pinos Isle treasure map also shows a shipwreck close to a beach.
The coordinates on the map, point to Cayman Sound, while the shipwreck is in fact the viewpoint you have to synchronize on that island.
If you unlocked Cayman Sound, fast travel to the viewpoint, and get back to the beach. While standing on the ground facing the viewpoint, turn left. Now, walk north, in order to reach the last group of palm trees.
Keep your eyes on the ground and before entering the green area where the palm trees grow, you will see several withered branches and two rocks. Between the rocks is the spot where you will have to dig to find the treasure chest. The chest contains 3000 Reales.
