If we're new to the metal detecting hobby, you can take the beach off in the hope of making great hits. It's true that the beaches offer wonderful opportunities for the metal detector, just as there are many races on the beach for great discoveries.
Keep in mind, however, that you can follow some key tips to succeed in beachcombing:
- Find the beach at night when it is empty and you have a seat. During the day there is a risk of irritating the sunbeds while swinging around the detector. It does not entertain the masses, so choose a moonlight night after the crowd went home and collected the lost scents if there is room and time for recreational search.
- Look after the heavy storms as it causes natural erosion that can bring exciting treasures to the surface. In the summer season, storms are optimal, but do not forget to try it even in the winter, and you can marvel at what is hidden, but the shifting sand raises. The beach is a dynamic system that is constantly on the move, so never give up but continue to return to your favorite beach. Metal detectors often reward them if they are patient and durable.
- Be very systematic as you work on the beach. If it just appears and reads the area randomly, it will probably not be so successful. However, if you create a private grid on the beach and regularly and thoroughly locate the squares of each grid, you may be surprised what you find. Take your time and you will reward.
- Identify those areas with high traffic where you can search, but also pay attention to points where natural erosion is the largest, eg. These may be the best treasure hunt places.
- Join the Water: Most detectors stay tall and dry on the beach, but if you have a waterproof machine, you can achieve amazing goals. Search low tide and spring tide, if possible, to get the lowest watermark. You have less chance of garbage than boxes in the water, and you have a greater chance of finding lost gold jewelery or sometimes ancient medals on sunken ships. If the water is cool where you hunt, wear a dress to stay longer in the water.
- Take some knee pads if you dig on the beach, or find out that your knee is really a rough sand. Stainless steel smoothing or plastic sandblast, as well as a wire mesh sand basket are also useful accessories for the equipment. The netting of the basket keeps the sand off, but it is small enough to keep its results safe.
Treasure hunting on the beach is very rewarding, does not give up and keeps the search.
