Other Sea Glass Beaches


Here are some other beaches where you’ll likely find sea glass. I’ve gathered the information from websites, articles and comments around the Internet. I haven’t thoroughly researched or verified all of them, but I plan on finding out more information or hopefully visting as many as I can in the future.

Keep in mind that sea glass beaches can be fickle. I’ve gone to beaches and have found a nice amount sea glass on one day. Then I’ve returned to the same beaches on another day or even the next day only to find little sea glass.

The best time to find sea glass is early in the morning during low tide. You will also likely find more sea glass during morning low tide times after a storm. Beaches near bluffs and rocky beaches with coarse sand are usually better for sea glass hunting.
