Presuming you mean the most likely area to find coins and jewelry, entire books have been written on the subject. In a nutshell, observe.

Look for the most likely places where occupation of the beach has occurred. Kids like to dig holes. Look for signs of that. Blankets leave flattened areas which may be visible even after an overnight rain. Look to the area that will ensure that the beach will be dry even at high tide. That is where they beach goers can watch the ocean (and their children) while they relax a bit. When they gather up their belongings and walk back to the parking lot, trace that path.

You can find information on all of this using Google and searching for terms that apply.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Here in San Diego.. that would be the place you see all the hotties laying in their bikinis..
and the rings usually are found in the wet sand areas during the lowest of low tides.. that is unless you like dodging waves...

Hey markg and GD-
A spot that is overlooked is the shower where you wash the sand off before going on the resort property. Most of these in the states are open.  Another place is where the beach chairs are laid out.

Sounds like you have some upscale beaches.... =) We just have packed beaches that are pretyy much covered with beach blankets and towels... but with the hundreds of thousands that hit the beach on the weekends... it is a treasure trove.....

Upscale- no just the whitest beaches- so many people detecting you are bumping elbows- thats just vacation- on the river where we have been hunting- we see more wild animals than people

Something else you might look into is the areas where water has eroded the bech from the high down to the low point- just like a gulley-pardon the southern slang

As one post said, observation. This may sound crazy but watch the areas behind the beach clubs. Do you realize how much "activity" goes on after dark that produces lost jewelry, watches, change, etc.  Another of my favorites is looking under beach access steps where people sit. I find plenty of lost change here.  One of our local beaches has a community center where they have children's programs daily, turtle watching, etc. The kids lose all their money and some jewelry in open shower areas, around the steps and the beach volley ball "courts".

After storms pay attention to Cuts and Troughs.
