Do you make money beach metal detecting is something I often get asked?
The simple question to this is yes, but there are things you need to consider and take into account and don’t expect to be a millionaire.
Making money metal detecting on the beach can be fairly straightforward (at times). If you put in the time, have a decent metal detector that can handle the wet salt sand, and learn to understand the beaches you are going to metal detect on, money can be made.
What is a Metal Detector?
I could not write a blog on metal detecting without having the obligatory article on what is a metal detector. Even though this is basic information it’s useful for those who are new to the metal detecting hobby. The simplest explanation being that a metal detector is an electronic device for locating metal object buried in the ground. A very simple explanation, but correct, none the less correct.
I don’t think there is any other hobby I enjoy as much as metal detecting / treasure hunting and beach metal detecting never stops amazing me as to what can come out of the sand. The hobby can be very rewarding, and sometimes really lucrative, for those willing to put in the time on the beach.
I say lucrative, as at the height of the summer the beach is always replenished with great new finds from the thousands of people flocking to the beach to enjoy the sun.
