Beachcombing ; Top 5 Tips

Our top 5 tips for beach combing:beachcombin

  1. Get the right tools. Creating your own kit is easy. You just need a stick for turning things over, a net for picking things up or rinsing the sand away and small bottles or containers for keeping fragile items in.
  2. Start with the high water line. But remember to look everywhere – you never know what you might be missing!
  3. Examine everything closely. Objects are not always as they appear – driftwood and seaweed may have a treasure hiding it in, a bottle could have a note inside!
  4. Always check for writing and markings – you may be able to track the owner.
  5. Be patient. It may take a little while so be sure to walk for 30mins – 1 hour before you expect to find anything.
