Default Do you think this beach would be worth detecting

My nieces husband is from Columbia South America and I got invited to go there with them on a vacation. He sent me this photo of one of the beaches near his home town...



Think anyone lost anything there and they mostly wear 18K

I think you "might" find a little something, perhaps get your ring count into the hundreds for the year.

Can't see why you would want to waste your time. Probably will only find the normal gold rings and clad. You want to go to a place where you can find a good supply of bottle tops and pull tabs.

Default Better find out if you can use your detector first

Columbia is a crazy country........they shoot first and don't ask questions later.
