Where and when should I go out?
Any beach in OBX has the potential to hold treasures, but (between us) we often have the best luck in Corolla or the 4×4. However, we must admit, it’s more about the timing. We start searching a couple of hours before low tide and a couple of hours after the tide begins rising. Luckily, we have this handy tide chart to help you keep track! And while beachcombing is a perfect year-round activity, you will find that our winter and spring storms tend to wash more onto our shores.
