If you're dry-sand hunting I would think it would be best late in the day when everyone is heading home. If you're hunting in the water I would think low-tide, regardless of time of day. I'm sure others with more experience will chime in to help.

I've only hunted a beach once, but this is exactly what I was thinking at the time.

I'd say first thing in the morning, before the sand combing machines start. You can still find stuff but they catch things in the first couple inches of sand. Call Parks and Recreations there and they can tell you when they start running on the beach. You should do alot better, before they start running.

I'm also with DaddyDigger, when most will leave the beach, heading home or having lunch/supper.

Good Luck
