There was not a lot of glass at the beach. We found more sea glass at other areas. Area was clean and easy to get to.

Beautiful.

Stopped on my road trip north. Cool spot. Beautiful glasses. Unfortunately encountered a gaggle of boomers who didn’t care about the rules and were pocketing the glass. They knew it was wrong and would look around before sticking in their picked. Typical boomers. Stripping the earth before they exit and leave it a worse place.

Beautiful little beach. So much to look at when the tide is low. Would be gorgeous when the sun is out. Definitely check tide levels before going.

Thieves abound…..and they are stealing the glass from the beach.
Jul 2021
The beach is gorgeous but you won’t find any glass here. Too many selfish idiots stealing the glass and carrying it away by the bucket full…which is ILLEGAL. THEY HAVE RUINED THIS BEACH FOR THE REST OF US. If you read this review and then take glass from the beach you are the worst kind of subhuman.

Tiny Pieces of Glass on a Beach
Jul 2021
Glass Beach is a beach. It is mostly pebbly, and some of the pebbles happen to be glass. There are a lot nicer, and more interesting beaches in the area.

Ice spot for a picnic lunch, not much glass anymore!

We would recommend reading Wikipedia for the history of this stretch of shoreline prior to your visit. Although visitors are discouraged from taking glass, it would appear most of it, if not all, is gone. Plenty of trails to walk and enjoy in some very soft sand. Instead, we took a lovely picnic lunch with us and found a great spot to enjoy the view and think about the history of this part of California’s coast.

Still worth seeing even without the glasses! RV parking not a problem.

Beautiful coastline. Still worth seeing even without the glasses! We were driving a RV and were worried about parking. It turned out that even though the parking lot on glass beach does not allow RV parking, there are plenty spaces available for RV on the streets around the beach, so no worries if you are driving an RV!

Plenty of glass
Jun 2021 • Friends
There is plenty of glass. You have to climb down a fairly steep trail and go down a couple of rocks. It’s literally littered with glass. And it’s ok to take glass.

Going to the glass beach museum in town is truly a treat.

I love the crabby little town.

Very Little Glass at the Beach
Mar 2021 • Family
Anyone know how Glass Beach in Fort Bragg, CA got its name? Well from what I heard, the Glass Beach area used to be a garbage dump from about 1906 to 1967. In the late 1960s dumping was prohibited. Over the years the natural pounding force of the waves broke down the glass debris and smoothed it down. Hence the name of Glass Beach. Unfortunately, there is not much of this sea glass left. People keep taking the glass even though they are not supposed to.

Still nice to visit Glass Beach if you are in this part of Northern California. The sunsets are beautiful. You are by the ocean so what is there not to love? The sounds of the waves are mesmerizing. Cool place to hangout and chill.
