    Oh, actually you can open the map there. I was silly and was looking in the original map while hovering onto the treasure map small square

    Have you found any treasure chests yet?

    Obviously this is an Easter Egg, and there is no real treasure to be found. But there could be something. And there are hints to be found within the challenge. I have managed to narrow it down to a small area using 4 different hints, but am stuck at this point and simply can't figure it out from here. But the hints complement each other individually, so Google has built a map within maps.

    Agreed it's an April fools, but there are other hidden messages too. My point was, the April Fools is the actual treasure does not exist, but there is definately a riddle/map built into it.

    I know there's probably no treasure, but it says 'beware of pirates'. Are there actually any?
