The secret loot cave can be found southeast of Grand Glacier, right next to the Fortnite island's coastline. We’ve marked the exact location in the above image for your convenience.

However, before landing at this location, I recommend dropping at a small shelter nearby to stock up on weapons. This spot serves as an ideal landing spot for solo players and duos alike. Right in this specific part of the map, you'll discover a small box containing loot.

Additionally, there are two barrels nearby. Head inside, and you'll encounter not just two but eleven more barrels and a chest. Once you secure the shield from here, head in the east direction, slide down continuously, and when you reach the bottom, you'll stumble upon a small cave resembling a mini Grotto.

Upon entering the secret cave in Fortnite, you'll find numerous chests. Keep progressing deeper, and you'll discover even more chests. Break one of these chests with your pickaxe, and you can continue further inside, unveiling additional chests for you to open.

The journey doesn't end there; you can break through and find more chests, trees, and even the Coral Buddies from Coral Castle!

The only challenge is that there's no apparent exit from this spot without retracing your steps unless you've found an alternative route, such as using the new Grapler, so make sure you don't get caught in the Storm.
