What do you call someone that collects sand?

An arenophile is someone that collects sand specimens from different beaches.

Not to be confused with a person that loves aviation – an areophile.

But we’ve only scratched the surface here. Check back often at http://www.beachchairscientist.com for more insight about your favorite beach discoveries.


  1. We do many beach activities with the children at our summer camps. We usually call them “discovery activities”. Scavenger Hunts are at the top of the list, of course. Always looking for new ideas.

    I’m glad that I found your site. Looking forward to checking it out more carefully in the near future.

    Best Regards,
