“Fun Activity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

When you get to glass beach trail off to the left and follw the fence until it ends and that is where you will find the bigger, prettier pieces of sea glass!

“glass beach”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

The scenery was nice but there is not a lot of glass to be found only little tiny pieces. Over the years it has been picked over even though you are not to take the glass from the beach.

“Nice stop to walk and get up close to the ocean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

We enjoyed this stop. It is a little bit of a walk down to the ocean on a good path. The parking area is a little trashy. But a good place to sit by the water with beautiful scenery. There are smoothed glass pieces there. But don't expect to see any bigger than your fingernail.
