The haul below was a recent long weekend beach hunting up at the Sunshine Coast. We were pretty pleased with the amount of rings found, 9 in total (rings are always a nice surprise!).
Beaches are a great place to take your trusty machine, especially for beginners as sand is one of the easiest substrates to dig in. Most metal detectors will tolerate dry sand but be wary though, not all machines will work in wet, salty sand. Due to the higher mineralisation of wet salty sand, some machines will go “crazy” constantly giving out strange/false signals.
If you think you’ll be doing a lot of beach hunting before you buy a new machine ask us what detectors work on wet sand.
Treasure awaits! Good luck out there!
