Just  an update , we now have permissions from all the authorities from the Mar Menor thro to Santa Pola and representations have been made to the Alicante authorities to enable us to hunt further north  , we now just have to wait .... things take time in Spain ...!!!!

Even better news is that the group is now alighned and in partnership with the Pilar museum , which gives us access to roman and other sites within their jurisdiction , this we do on designated days with officials  from the museum in attendance.

Very interesting... I had the understanding that metal detecting in Spain is 'off limits'. My primary interest is detecting the beaches. I live 3 1/2 hrs from the spanish border (near Marseille, France). Have you any suggestions to assist me in being able to detect northern beaches? Any info would be appreciated.. Coloma Gold

Hi , the official line is/used to be that to detect in Spain you had to obtain an  import licence  from MADRID and without this it was a big no no  .

 This  is what i understood to be the case , until i was contacted by someone [ who now heads our intrepid  little band ..!!] that 2 people had set up a group on the back of a help group based in San Pedro del  Pilar called Adapt , it is thro this anglo spanish group that we have managed to get the permissions that we have from the various town halls and police forces on the coast .
By applying a strict code of conduct, ID tags with details of who we are in Spanish , and interaction at various functions we have now  been accepted and respected  in the local communities , it has been 18 + months of  hard work  writeing and banging our heads against the numerous brick walls to get were we are now .

We know of various individuals  who chance their arm and if we meet them they are invited to join us [ this gives them security and the advantage of being insured ,all for the princely sum of 12 euro per year ..!!! ] , we also know of Spanish  MD clubs and there are 2 large dealers in Barcelona and others in Madrid that have supplied members with machines without any import licences  ..so how does that work ...Huh???

As you are so far north of our group ,i,m afraid we cant help you , you could chance it and be ok ,or you could meet armpit of the day and be relieved of your equipment or worse .

Situated on the med as you are ,i would have thought you would have plenty of fertile  sites and beaches in your area ..!!!!

Yes, you are correct about having plenty of areas to detect. But sometimes, I like to travel to places that I have not gone and in those cases, I would like to do some detecting also... just a thought. thanks, coloma Gold

Well met, GRASSRANGER. You are really doing your preliminary set up and research. Glad to see it is paying off. You say, you have to do it all in front of officials? Do you get to keep any? Thanks for the posts and updates.

Hi , a representative is present on the site when we do hunt, but  nothing of significance has been found yet,  but it is early days . The coast of spain has  had numerous people  invadeing and settling  over the centuries and some of the larger sites are known , but lack of cash in the past means that little has been done to investigate them .


We have a small group who most sundays  are investigateing one site  but it is hard going as the groung is sunbaked clay, limestone and rocky and we do not have a  backhoe to help us ...!!!!
