Default Minelab 505 Coil and a few questions

Hey all, I have a few questions on this Minelab 505 that I purchased a few months ago. So far I have done pretty good for a beginner but would like to do better if possible. Yes, I found coins, and old rusty items from the beach. So here are my questions:
1. What is a good coil for the Beach?
2. What is a good coil for the local Park?
3. If using a Metal Mode do i still need to Ground Balance?
4. If i use the Presets 1,2 or 3 will i need to do anything adjusting. Will i just be able to hit Preset 1 and then do a Ground Balance and off I go?

Thanks for all you help... Steve...
