Shipwreck Beaches

Locations & Historical Notes

Treasure Beach Detectors is going to put you exactly on the spots where artifacts and treasure have been found from ancient shipwrecks! These locations have been researched and confirmed by Experts. The locations are shipwrecks that have occurred very close to shore which makes it possible for the beach and shallow water hunters to still recover artifacts and treasures today under the right conditions! However, pay very close attention to the shipwreck locations that are leased because it is illegal to metal detect in the water within a 3000-yard radius of the shipwreck! However, you are free to metal detect between the water’s edge and dunes.

Don’t forget to check out my notes and the ships manifest listed below the coordinates! You must remember when you see “chests of gifts” listed on a Spanish Galleon ship’s manifest this would include jewelry, brooches, pendants, idols and many other artifacts made of gold and silver! Most of the time these pieces of jewelry included hundreds of diamonds and precious gem stones like emeralds and rubies! One last thing I would like to note about ships manifests is that the items listed are the documented items this does not include what wealthy passengers were carrying or even what was smuggled aboard! Check this page often because new shipwreck spots will be added from time to time!

The "Nuestra Senora De Rosario"

This site is a little more difficult to access considering you are going to have to walk some miles from the nearest public parking area to even get to it! I have no information of artifacts to report from this site … however … I do feel that there potential to find a Gold Doubloon or maybe even Gold Bar under the right conditions!
