While this is pretty easy once you get all the stud multipliers (since you end up with x7680) a good easy place to farm studs if you need it is right at the beginning of Port Royal. There is an area behind silver bricks near the crank you need to use a blacksmith on which yields about 35,500 without any multipliers. If you've got all the multipliers that's 272 million right there. More than a quarter of the way with one room.

And if you do have all the multipliers you may as well finish the mission since you'll be able to get around 900 million studs fairly easily on this or really on any mission. Also remember that you don't have to finish the mission to get the studs. Whenever you feel you have enough you can save and exit to take what you've got and run in true pirate fashion. (Thanks to rebus01 for suggesting I include this idea)

For your convenience I'm copying the locations of the stud multipliers and the treasure magnet into this guide from MissJaded's guide for the "You may throw my hat" achievement. All credit for the following goes to her.

Treasure Magnet:
Price: 225,000
Description: Studs will be magnetically drawn to you as you walk by them.
Location: In the main port area, you will see a ladder leading away from the main level select area into the water. Swim towards the screen to find a beach in the left area. Build the golden blocks on this beach area and then destroy them to make the hat appear.

Double Treasure:
Price: 600,000
Description: For example if you have no multiplier then Double adds 2x. If you have 4x with double then it's 8x. If you have 4x and 6x it's 48x instead of 24x.
Location: Take the left Gold Port Gate. Should be the first thing on your right when you walk through if you have enough Gold Bricks to unlock the Left Gate. You will find two cannons above the entrance immediately when you walk in. Use the cannons to shoot the targets. You have to use a torch to light them.

Treasure 2x:
Price: 500,000
Description: Adds a times two multiplier to your stud count as you pick them up.
Location: In the main port area where the Treasure Magnet was, there are 5 pillars near the water in the middle, just jump on them quickly and the hat will appear near them. You only have to tap it just enough and move on to the next pillar. Keep trying if you are having a hard time.

Treasure 4x:
Price: 1,000,000
Requirements: Black Beard
BlackBeard Cheat Code: D3DW0D
Price: 500,000
Description: Adds a times four multiplier to your stud count as you pick them up.
Location: When you unlock Blackbeard you can use a cheat code or play the story Strange Tide to unlock him. Go through the left Gold Port Gate and you'll come to a door across the well, it only can be opened with Blackbeard. Once inside go to the aquarium and use mermaid's or Philip (You get the mermaid in Stange Tide also) scream/sing ability to break a glass and reveal hat.

Treasure 6x:
Price: 1,500,000
Description: Adds a times six multiplier to your stud count as you pick them up.
Location: Treasure 6x is behind the left Gold Port Gate in the well. Just hit the silver pots around the well several times and it should appear inside the well.

Treasure 8x:
Price: 2,000,000
Description: Adds a times eight multiplier to your stud count as you pick them up.
Location: Go through the left Gold Port Gate and go all the way till you reach water. Build the golden bricks here, then use one of the barrels near this area on the newly created barrel switch to raise the bridge. (Just like Fast Dig but your using two barrel switches) Then take the other avalible barrel across the bridge and use it on the barrel switch. This unlocks a door. Go inside and destroy some objects near the camera and you'll find it.

Treasure 10x:
Price: 2,500,000
Description: Adds a times ten multiplier to your stud count as you pick them up.
Location: Go through the right main port gate to the tower with the golden wheel in front of it. Keep building and destroy the golden blocks in front of it till you get an elevator. Ride the elevator to the top then climb the wall and work your way to the the left till you get to a chain you can climb to the top of the tower with. Once on top you will see a spy glass. Use the spy glass to find an island, then look to the left of the island to find a girl. Follow her with the spy glass as she digs 3 different times and when she is finished the red hat will appear.
