Metal Detecting in Mauritius.
What a place to go metal detecting! Mauritius has some of the cleanest most beautiful beaches in the world.
Metal detecting here is an absolute pleasure as the scenery is incredible and the bounty plentiful. If you own a metal detector in Mauritius then you will be in for a treat as competition is low and finds abound.
Two Metal Detector SA Club members were lucky enough to do some holiday detecting in Mauritius in 2013 with some great finds. Both were made in the South West of Mauritius around Flic n Flac.
The main public beaches will have a lot more trash, however the resort beaches are clean on the surface but you will still get the dreaded buried cans from people too lazy to reach a dustbin. For the most part however you are lightly to find plenty of jewelry and Mauritian Rupees. You will even pick up a South African Rand or 2.
Here are a few photos of Tobies Mauritian Metal Detecting Finds. A great haul of Mauritian coins, toys and jewelry.
Some finds made by Richard at Sugar Beach Resort Mauritius: A good few coins, a nice ring and some odds and ends as well as the inevitable R2 coin. About 3 hours worth of detecting the beach at night.
There are also plenty of shipwrecks around Mauritius from the old Dutch East India ships and others. You never know what treasure will wash up on a Mauritius beach.
Next time you are on holiday be sure to take your detector along for the ride, it may just pay for your holiday and help you catch a top class tan while hitting the beach.
