All reviews small beach awesome beach blue apartment minute stop sharp edges wind chimes beautiful sight beautiful sea amazing location royal naval dockyard worth the trip short visit unique experience cruise ship fish cemetery tinkling
This beach is the result of the British army and Royal naval dockyard disposing of glass bottles off the cost. At times the glass is very deep. Standing there listening to the clanking of the rolling glass is very relaxing and a unique sound. Peaceful...More
We took a 5 minute taxi ride to this beach from the ship. To see all the sea glass is amazing and the thought of it taking 20-50 years to get it to the condition it is. If you listen carefully, it clangs together sounding...More
When we first discovered this beach, it was not well known and the entire beach was covered with sea glass. Now only 25% of the beach is covered with sea glass. There is also a bit of trash and debris on the beach which has...More
Reading other reviews now I wish I knew the place was a dump. It definitely looks like a dump. I`m sorry I didn`t take any pictures to show you. When i went there in front of the sign there were four black garbage bags and...More
It took us all day to find this little abandoned slice of beach literally covered with sea glass. There is no sign advertising it anymore because tourists were taking too much of the sea glass apparently but if you can find it - it's definitely...More
This beach was a dump for the British Navy for - literally - hundreds of years.
Sounds disgusting. But it's not. It's quite fantastical.
The location has been downplayed, and I won't give directions to get there. If you discover this beach on your own,...More
This very quiet, little cove is an extremely unique beach covered in sea glass. The small waves actually make a tinkling sound when they wash ashore, over the glass. It's lovely. Don't expect to swim here, it's not that kind of beach. Wading and rock...More
This tiny little beach is a little over a mile from where the big cruise boats dock. We got here by bus and ended up walking back to the harbor in about 20 minutes. The beach was sheltered on a fairly windy day so it...More

We went to the first sea glass beach near the port and it was the first bus stop. You just had to walk across the street to get to it. Only problem is it extremely hard to get another bus to stop and pick you back up during tourist season because the buses fill up quick at port. I suggest getting a taxi or guided beach tour so you will have transportation to get you out. We had to wait at bus stop for over an hour when we were done and the only bus that stopped was a locals bus so we had to ride it to the other end of island before we could get off.

Glass beach is behind a row of low unoccupied (almost derelict) cottages out of Dockyard itself by approx 1 mile & on the West side of the road. Please leave it or be very reasonable so that others can enjoy. In recent years some visitors including a Tripadvisor contributer here have removed ridiculous amounts (25lbs) of sea glass. This seems to have become a sometimes lucrative pastime for NA visitors some of whom are selling this glass back home ! Thanks, enjoy & please allow future generations the same pleasure.
