Metal Detecting

Hi All

Is there much, if any metal detecting on the islands? I used to medal detect the beaches at the Outer Banks, NC. And found many interesting things. I'm now hunting (metal detecting) in the mid-west. It's not as easy as the beach, but still as fun. I would think there would be a lot on old money and artifacts to be found.

I have wondered about this myself. While I don't have any "official" answers, I have been told that metal detectors are not allowed on/in National Parks beaches/land. I don't know if the same is true for non-Nat'l Park lands.

If you find and official rules or policies please post them here.

I remember a wedding at Hibiscus beach/Pelican Cove where the groom dropped the ring in the sand. Apparently, he went to K-Mart, got a metal detector and found it ! Wonder how close that came to the old saying "without a hitch"??

I have seen them being used @ Emerald Beach, Bolongo and the other beaches.....it is alive, well and in use.

On STX many beaches are turtle nesting sites and any digging is not allowed.
