UK Beach List


Modern finds turn up amongst the groynes between the mouth of the River Don and the River Dee, older finds can be found between the last of the groynes and around the mouth of the River Don.


This town has changed hands more than twelve times in the wars between England and Scotland and battle relics are not uncommon finds on the foreshores of the Tweed. Underneath Berwick Bridge have been found many Scottish silver coins, the other bridge, the Royal Border Railway Bridge also is good for coins but not in as good condition.
Warren Mill
Past finds here have included Roman coins, search the landing stages but watch out for deep mud.


The castle here stands next to the beach and would be a good search area in winter but don’t expect much in the way of finds in summer.


Search the rocky areas to the north of the harbour (unless they are dredging which stirs up the silt at the bottom and helps the older finds come up), also to the south lies Breadnell Bay where medieval coins have turned up after storms.


In the early 19th century the river here changed its course and what was once a large port shrunk to nothing. The abandoned harbour can be rich in finds of all ages, also check the sands at the entrance to the harbour, to the south lies Warkworth where an old silted up riverbed is good for pre-decimal pennies and halfpennies.


The best area at Blyth is the South Pier which will need searching around and under it, in winter a search of the high tide line 2 - 3 meters seaward is good for coins.
Seaton Sluice
Lots of finds have been made in the dunes here and a good search can prove fruitful, in winter search around the south pier and work the high tide line for about 3m seaward. Older finds have been made in the harbour.

Whitley Bay

Search the shingle at low tide for pre-decimal coinage, March is about the best time, in summer search just in front of the sea wall for recent losses.

St Marys Island

Wrecks lie offshore here and a good search after winter storms could reveal interesting finds, the path to the lighthouse is good for coin finds as are most local foreshores. South lies Seaburn where the rock pools to the north are good for finds and the sand around the pier, a summer a search of the small natural harbour may be worth the time.


Once famous for its fishing fleet of which little remains. Areas near any old walls built during this time will be worth a search and the rocky sands to the south hold the oldest finds, the dry sand at the north is good for modern finds but anywhere is worth coinshooting.


Search the foreshore near to the castle (do check the piece you intend to search is not private), older finds turn up at King Edwards Bay in the rock reefs at low tide. The North pier has some coins on the southern side and just outside the river mouth wreck finds have come up in winter, the haven foreshore has thrown up lots of older finds and medieval coins. Long Sands has rubbish to the north with modern coins turning up towards the south, just past Sharpness Point suffers from rubbish, but more chances of coins as you near the North pier. The South pier has coins on both sides but with more rubbish on the south side and some finds between the river and the pier.

South Shields

The odd wreak lies off the coast here and a Roman fort lies nearby, winter searches of the sand near the pier and Marsden Bay beach can reap good finds , in summer recent losses can be found in most areas . Roman coins have been found on the beach but mostly in worn condition.


Roman coins and turn of the century coins turn up mostly near the pier, in front of the amusement arcade is a place where modern coins are found in quantity.


For over a thousand years a port has been here, search the area in Hartlepool Bay around the rocks and also the sands at the harbour mouth.

Seaton Carew

The central area is good for summer searches and after winter storms the Scar Rocks are know to pull up the odd wreak relic.


Strong currents here are known to strip the sand away to the hard pack, when this happens finds are known to sit on the surface and stare up at you, as well as coins and relics another common find here is cannon balls, so don ‘t ignore large signals.


The harbour here also drains at low tide and worth a search are the rockpools that show at low tide.


A sea port which dates back many hundreds of years, the sands to the north of the breakwater are good for winter searches and to the south of the town the rocky shores are also good. After high tides a search of the harbour area to the south of the swing bridge is an area that has given up good finds.

Robin Hood’s Bay

Cliff erosion here means that most finds are from above, no general area is better than another but also keep a look out for the many fossils which the area is well known for.


One of the first seaside resorts with two bays and a harbour in between. The old harbour has been here for over 500 years and drains out at low tide but has a high amount of rubbish in it. The North Bay is good for modern loses and suffers the full brunt of the storms, the South Bay is the most popular and reveals the oldest finds, but the whole of the area in well known for small iron nails. Next to the West Pier in the South Bay is the best area for coins but for random coin shooting the area of sand in front of the promenade also ranks tops. Slightly to the south here are the Blackrocks which can act as coin traps.

Skipsea Sands

A small sandy beach which gives up recent losses but very little older finds.

Kettle Ness

The village here like so many along this coast has been claimed by the sea, worth a search between high tide and low tide after a storm or high spring tides.


Finds are short on the ground here and only really turn up after a storm.


At one time a search of the old wharves would be recommended, but with development most have now been built on or spruced up, some still exist and an eye open for when they are cleaned out or developed would be the best bet.

North Ferriby

Quite a few finds have been made here on the foreshore including Roman and Saxon, best area between the village and the Humber Bridge, but watch out for deep mud.

South Ferriby

To the east of this village on the banks of the Humber is another area where Roman and Saxon finds have been made due to a Roman villa site slipping into the Humber, again watch out for deep mud.


Search under the pier for decimal and recent losses, between the first and second groyne to the south of the pier can be good for jewelry and some predecimal coins. When the tide goes out a stream forms out to the sea from the pier, follow this out till it turns north then search the area between this and the promenade for a width of 20 meters for Victorian losses.


Roman finds have come from this beach due a roman settlement under the sands here and on a very low tide you can see tree stumps showing through, The main beach area in summer will provide modern coinage, in winter a search to the north end of the promenade and on both sides of the groynes will reap rewards.

A ferry has run from here since the 1500s, try the beach of Helford Passage on the other side of the river after a good spring tide or storm.


This was a busy little port over a century ago with old quays that nearly dry up at low tide, wellies and good discrimination needed.

Manacle Point Area

The deadly rocks here are famous due the hundreds of ships that have been wrecked on them.

Mounts Bay Area

To the east of the bay between the Lizard and the Gunwalloe Cove where there has been many ship wrecks some of which carried treasure, from which silver and gold coins turn up after storms and extremely high seas.

St. Ives

During the medieval times this was a very important port and could boast over 300 fishing vessels and 200 coastal traders, today it is a peaceful spot. Look for finds between the high and low tide marks especially after winter storms.


Best areas to search are around the estuary, which has strong currents that bring in and remove the coins and relics.


Masses of people descend to these beaches in summer and modern finds are plentiful, after the winter storms look for older finds further down the beach.

Older finds turn up at all beaches apart from Crantock Beach, which is lacking in older signals. Gannel to the south of Newquay was a busy harbour until the 19th century with a tidal marshy arm that goes out to sea but could produce good finds.

Treanance Cove

Three harbours have been swept away by winter storms and the rocky shores can give up finds back to the 17th Century.

Harlyn Bay

An Iron Age cemetery was found on the foreshore by the sea in 1900, Roman relics have also been found in the area. Trevose Head nearby can reap good rewards by slow checking of the coves between Christmas and May.

Mawgan Porth

Sandy beaches here which give up good finds all year round, search the rocks further north where many a ship has been claimed, after rough weather older finds are within detecting range.


Well known to shipping because of the ‘ doom bar ‘ at the entrance to the River Camel. The bar has caught many ships, especially sail ships due to the strong currents in Padstow Bay. Work the sands at the river entrance, landing stages up stream are also worth a search but the rubbish content is high.

A stone pier was built here in 1540 and was a very busy port until the early 1800s. The best places to search are the mouth of the harbour and the sandy coves to the south, old finds can still be found even in the summer months but are a lot less common.

Crackington Haven

Modern finds can be found easily in the summer months when the thousands of holiday makers arrive, at the edge of the beach is a reef which has claimed many a ship in the past. Winter storms are good for turning up the older finds.

To be written.


Old finds turn up here after storms in winter (inc. medieval coins) in the sand at low tide, recent losses in winter and summer also turn up in the shingle.

Sully Bay

Roman coins have been found here, best to follow the tide out and search around Sully Island (watch out for incoming tides) although between the mainland and the island can yield results, storms throw up finds onto the foreshore and a search is a must when it dies down.


Recent losses are common here and a winter search of any exposed rocks will reap rewards also older finds turn up in Whitmore Bay in the winter.

St Donats

Victorian finds are the most common here where a search of the high tide line and any depressions should pull up the goods.

Caswell Bay

Best searched in winter with a combination of strong currents and a rough sea which then leave the finds ready for recovery.

Worms Head

Spanish coins have turned up here quite a lot and thought to come from an unknown wreak out to sea, best to search after a storm or on a spring low tide.

Rhossili Bay

With a couple of wreaks just below the low tide line a winter search could prove worth looking at, in summer modern finds and recent losses are the signals.

Check the sands that show at low tide for Victorian coinage.

Tenby Area

The harbour has seen cannonballs found in it, for older coins look towards Monkston point and for more recent try Saundersfoot.

Check the foreshores around the castle where old finds have been made in the past, a couple of ship wreaks lie just off here and worth checking after a storm.

Milford Haven

Older finds are common here in winter, best area to start must be Gelliswick Bay then the docks area, at Burton Ferry the shingle beach is known for giving up coins and to the north Sandy Haven is good for recent losses after a heavy sea.

Whitesand Bay

This is a place that needs to be searched after a storm to produce the goods, older and newer coins as well as wreak relics have turned up.

Dinas Head

Wreak relics are often found here but only after a good storm, nearby Fishguard can turn up modern coins all year round.


A search around the harbour mouth can pull up the older finds, also check after any spring tides.


A search in the harbour here has been known to pull up very old coins and finds at low tide.


A good place to search where finds turn up quite often, after rough seas give Harlech a try to the south.


This must be about one of the best beaches in the area. The dunes here are well known for little glory holes of coins, look for areas that would attract a family for a picnic as the best area to search also check out Golden Sand Bay for finds but beware of lots of junk towards the top of the beach.


Finds do exist on this beach but beware of lots of junk and rubbish, the harbour here is now silted up compared to what it once was again lots of rubbish is to be found in it.


Medieval coinage is a known to come from the foreshores around the castle, also check out any depressions in the sand when the tide goes out.

Finds have been known to come from this beach but only from deep down, best to check after rough seas or a spring tide.


Best area to search has got to be the beach to the north of the harbour after a storm.


The beach in front of Fort Belen has given up a lot of cannonballs in the past and civil war relics have also come from local rivers.


A very busy ferry used to run from here and the shingle beach gives up the best finds at the low tide line.


Another ferry site where the finds turn up at the low tide line but some days finds just do not want to be found.


This beach is well visited in summer and can be good for coin shooting, in winter the older finds turn up in the wet sand below the high tide line but watch out for lots of iron nails. In the past wreckers used to use the beach and any visible rocks at low tide would be worth a search.

Trearer Bay

A place loved by bathers and again a search below the high tide line around any rocks or shingle patches showing can reap rewards.


A ferry has run from here to Ireland for many years and best results are to be found at the shingle beach near to the breakwater.

Hen Borth

Wreak relics turn up here after storms and a slow search can give up the results but finds can be deep.


The rockpools below the cliffs at low tide here give the best finds and the coves at Wylfa Head that can be good.


Famous for the wreak of the Royal Charter which sank here just to the north of a rocky ledge with its cargo of gold. A search of the beach in winter may pull up something but don’t hold your hopes up to high.

Traeth Lligwy

A lot of wreaks lie off this beach and a winter search of the southern end of the beach and any visible ridges and bumps at low tide should pull out the goods.

Traeth Bychan

Finds can be found all over, older finds are lacking but a good area for a bit of coin shooting.

Red Wharf

With a mixture of old wharves and strong currents (be careful) finds are moved around all the time in the sand, find your find then concentrate on that area.


The beaches on both sides of the castle can yield finds where the best finds turn can turn up toward the bottom of the beach at low tide, keep your eye open for any shingle patches which can be worth a search.


Good finds can be made in the shingle here as well as in front of the promenade, best after a good storm.


Some finds have been made at the old landing stages up the river here as well as at the sands at the mouth of the harbour, on the other side of the river at Debanwy the foreshores have been productive in finds.


In the summer finds come from around the Pavilion with a good concentration of recent losses in the dry sand going towards the bandstand. In winter search below the high tide line in the same areas and pay attention for any bumps or dips in the sand, after a storm a trip to Colwyn Bay can be good.


With three miles of beach and two miles of promenade you have a large search area to go for. Best areas is where the River Clwyd cuts across the beach and also remember to check the deck chair areas, in winter a search below the high tide line can be good but best after a good storm. The beaches of Abergele and Prestatyn can pull up the goods but only after a good storm. There is an elevated tower you can use here that will allow you to scan the beach looking for any hot spots.

Black Point

Old finds turn up here, which could be from a 13th century priory nearby, a slow search of the shingle, and sand is needed in the winter months.

West Kirby

It’s popular for the holidaymakers in the summer to sit on the sand using the promenade as a windbreak. A search of the sand up to 4 meter’s away can produce modern finds, in winter this same area has been known to produce Victorian finds after a high tide and storm.


Till the end of the 1700’s this was a prosperous and growing place, the River Dee changed it’s course and the town started to dwindle. Finds from this period can be found during the winter months, also a ship came to grief on the nearby Wirral foreshore from which some wreck relics have been found.

New Brighton

This has been a popular resort since the early 1800’s with day-trippers from Liverpool and Birkenhead. Patches of shingle on the beach often hold small coins, nearer the low water mark a mixture of mud and sand keeps the pre-decimal coins in good condition. An old causeway at the mouth of the Mersey leading to a fort has been used to form a lake in the past, when the lake was being formed a lot of old trading tokens were found.

Hale Head

Check the whole area, rockpools and dry sand and any depressions showing as finds from medieval onwards have been found here.


With 6 miles of sand Southport has been popular since the Victorian times, The area in front of the sea bathing lake and also about 300 meter’s to the north of the pier. After winter storms check Crosby to the south which was also a popular place in the Victorian times and has been known to give up its goods after a storm.


A popular resort that dates back to the Roman times, modern coinage will be found as well as Victorian, there is also a chance that Roman coins will also turn up.
A beach that would put off most newcomers with miles of sand and lots of area to search. The basic rules of this beach are as follows - In summer search all around the three piers for modern finds. In winter after high tides the areas at the top of the beach between the piers for the best finds also check out any dips or depressions showing in the sand at low tide.


4 Miles of shingle and sand, the best area being Marine Hall Beach, also a search of the sands at the mouth of the river and to the north of the pier during winter can yield older finds. About a mile out from the promenade at low tide can be seen the remains of the Roman fort, beware of soft sand and a fast incoming tide.


An important port since the late 1700’s, check in and around the shingle patches from where many older finds have been made. The area also suffers from glory holes so dig any large signals. After winter storms the best area to search is Sunderland Point.


A stony beach where modern finds will come up in front of the main promenade, the northern part of the beach consists of shingle and mud where a search is best left to after the winter storms if looking for older finds. Best finds turn up around the slope and around the steps.

Grange Over Sands

Modern finds are best found in front of the seawall in the shingle and sand, Victorian finds turn up after the winter storms.

Barrow in Furness

Finds can be made all along the foreshore after a storm here, although the area dates back many years it was not until the 18th Century when the port grew.


Once a busy port it is best now to search the riverbanks during low tide for relics.

Watch out live ammo when searching the area, the best area is where the river channels out across the beach, also Roman coins have been found before on the beach.


A popular place in summer and a search to the north of the harbour can pull up the Victorian coins even in summer.


A small patch of beach lies here which is used by caravanners from the nearby caravan park.


The beach consists of pebbles and is used by people visiting the castle here, a patch of grass lies next to the beach which is also worth detecting.


At the mouth of the River Doon is a small beach used by holidaymakers avoiding the crowded beach at Ayr, above the beach are the ruins of Greenan Castle (out of bounds to detectors). Search the beach and the grass areas next to it for modern losses.


This is one of the most popular beaches in the area and is used by day trippers from Glasgow. The beach is about 3 miles long and one of the most popular spots is in opposite the pavilion, large numbers of coins have been known to turn up after the day trippers have gone, best time to search is in early July when the Glasgow fair is held .The Low Green opposite the beach is also good for searching for coinage lost.


This is a small beach that is manly used by locals and the odd tourist, finds can be lacking sometimes.


With a fine sandy beach this used by tourists and finds are manly modern.



A nice sandy beach which is good for modern losses.


Many bays here and good coinshooting can be had when the beaches empty.


The beaches on the south of the island produce the best finds where the placid sheltered bays become quite crowded.



Quite a busy sea front, when the tide goes out check the small lagoons which are left, a local beach comber makes his finds here by looking for bars of shingle showing on the beach, these are normally about a foot wide and between 6 / 10 feet in length, as you look out to sea go to the right hand end of each one and detect, you will not come away empty, the high tide here also pushes holiday-makers to the top of the beach making dry sand searching quite good.


The area around the pier gives the best finds at low tide but finds can be few so search slowly and carefully.


This has got to be the best coinshooting beach with finds scattered over most of the beach.


At low tide search around the pier and the exposed rocks on both sides for best results

Plaza czyli foreshore.

What is Meant by ‘Foreshore’?

In England, Wales and Northern Ireland the foreshore is defined as the land situated between mean high water and mean low water. In Scotland the definition is different and is defined as land between mean high water of spring tides and mean low water of spring tides.

Wiem ze bylo potrzebne pozwolenie na szukanie na plazy .
Kosztowalo £20.
W tej chwili rewiduja procedure przyznawania pozwolen.
Jak sytuacja wyglada na dzien dzisiejszy ?

I bądź tu mądry , w PL starsze fanty na plażach to jak wygrać w lotka
znam parę miejsc gdzie są wraki bo po każdym sztormie wywala ceramikę i szkło
od średniowiecza po XIX wiek . ale metalowych artefaktów nie ma
a w UK co plaża to inny klimaty :shock:

Najstarsze co wygrzebałem z plaży to cynkowy pfennig w stanie agonii
a sporo kiedyś chodziłem z nudów po plażach.

Szczerze mówiąc to nie znam wielu poszukiwaczy brytyjskich, którzy mieliby cos takiego jak pozwolenie w chodzeniu po plażach ;-) To zwyczajnie nie jest egzekwowalne. Inna bajka to Tamiza w Londynie, ale jak już pisaliśmy, cały proces jest prosty i w miarę szybki..

W Irlandii mam taki kawałek plaży. Odwiedziłem w lecie - znalazłem kilka euro.
Odwiedziłem w styczniu (plaża z piaszczystej zmieniła się w żwirowo kamienistą) znalazłem na małym odcinku monety kilkudziesięcioletnie (prawie żadnych współczesnych), łuskę od działka, stary guzik, resztki jakichś ozdób. Spotkałem do tego innego detektorystę (Irysa).
Byłem w w kwietniu: plaża znowu piaszczysta i zero fantów.

Wniosek z tego że plaża żyje własnym życiem i rytmem.
Irys zresztą powiedział - warto chodzić po zimowych przypływach.

Wszystkim chetnych polecam Pagham Beach kilka mil na zachod od Bognor Regis - miasteczka w ktorym mieszkam.
Okazuje sie ze plaza i okolice maja bardzo ciekawa historie zaczynajac od kosciolka stojacego na saxonskich ruinach z VII wieku, przez szmuglerski port przeladunkowy, po kluczowa role w D-day!
W wiosce kilka milych B&B i 2 puby z ok. XV wieku. Mozna dobrze zjesc a i napic sie!!
Sam dopiero poznaje to miejsce ale chetnym naswietietle co wiem.


A tu troche info:
There are so many aspects that it is difficult to know where to start. Did you know, for instance, that the original village of Pagham was at one time one of the largest ports in England and was used to send wool to Europe? However the harbour silted up in the 14th century and the wealth of the area diminished. Let us first go down to the beach - here it is possible to walk and see one of the Mulberry Harbours that were constructed as part of the war effort in 1944. On the beach there is a large rock, which has a plaque providing information on this particular part of the war effort,and also to act as a memorial to mark the 55th anniversary of the D. Day landings in 1944 also the historic association of Pagham beach with these Mulberry Harbours. These 6,000-ton structures were to be used during the liberation of Europe and by 5th June 50 had been assembled between Pagham Beach and Selsey. This was done apparently to hide them from enemy view. During the summer of 1944 they were used along the Normandy Coast to allow thousands of men and equipment to land as part of the invasion at that time.
The Pagham beach area has of course over the years come in for many historical reviews and articles both in the national and local press, also in certain magazines for the interesting homes that were created with the arrival of the railway carriages. These were originally to be holiday homes, but over the years, the climate and location made them an excellent location for permanent residence, and now these carriages have been swallowed into more modern homes. It is still possible to see the outline of some of the carriages in gardens being used as sheds, or aspart of club houses. Sometimes when homes are sold today, they include the phrase complete with interesting features, this can mean original windows, frames or other memorabilia from the original carriages.
Church Farm holiday complex today of course dominates any aerial view of the district, but this also contains mention of 2nd World War use, such as the site of the World War 2 Firing Range and also one area in the complex is known as ballast hole!
Still staying in this vicinity we have the church of St. Thomas Becket. The Saxons built the first church in the 7th century AD, on land given by Caedulla, King of Wessex to St. Wilfrid, in gratitude for having saved the people of the area from starvation. Now with that amount of history it is certainly somewhere to visit, and the Vicar, who is holding two open afternoons for you to take a look around his church, is making this possible.
Over the years the visitor to any area would have looked for a welcoming hostelry and they would have been well catered for with The Lion and The Lamb. Each of these premises has its own tale to tell, such as The Lion, which is thought to have been built in the 15th century, and there are tales that smugglers used it, and that it contains a priest home and a secret panel. The Lamb is reputed to have been built about 1702/6 and was an early ale house. The Bear has had two sites and is today known for the start of the annual Pagham Pram Race on Boxing Day. The Inglenook hotel was developed from the conversion of two cottages approx. 400 - 500 years ago. More recently the Kings Beach was opened during the expansion of the area in the 1930&s. Its name is developed from the fact that King George V stayed at Craigweil nearby the local beach i.e. Kings Beach.
