Sea glass Beach

Is Sea Glass Beach now off limits to the public? If so is there another glass beach near by?

We will be staying at the S. Hampton Princess for a wk.

Evidently...the 'sea glass beach' out along the south shore, in Sandys Parish is okay to visit again.

NO...there are no other beaches in the area that are as 'luxuriant' with sea glass as this. The other 'sea glass' beach in Bermuda is located out along Bermuda's far eastern shore, on Saint George's Island, along Barry Road (nr: Floral Ln.), next to and below the old ALEXANDRA BATTERY fortification.

Hi there!

The sea glass beach is still open to the public; the only thing is you can not take anything off the beach. I hope this information was helpful.

There is a seaglass beach heading towards dockyard. It is a bit hidden. You have to go behind these apartment buildings on a dirt road and there is a small stairwell you walk down. It is pretty amazing! The walls are all embedded with seaglass, and the beach has TONS. However, you are not allowed to take any from the beach...so they say! ;)

That's the same '..sea glass beach..' being referred to. The "..apartments..' you refer to are the '..ALBERT'S ROW..' apartments, along the Malabar Road (nr: Touch Through Me Ministries church and 'Convict's Cemetery') in Sandy's Parish...approx. 1/2 mile from the entrance/exit of the Royal Naval Dockyard complex.

Sea glass beach is not off limits, however, it is getting to that point simply because of all the cruise ship visitors who feel that one piece is not just enough, and bring back bags and bags of the glass. If that keeps happening, 1) there will be no more sea glass beach, 2) some of the island artists will not be working, since they rely on that to make their art. Personally, I saw a cruise ship passenger with 4 of the plastic grocery bags full of the glass.....no way she needed or even wanted that much!

Unfortunately, many people visiting Bermuda's sea glass beach prefer Gordon Gekko's definition. The odd thing is that MOST aren't even wannabe' artists or artisans. They just think that they'll scoop up a bag or bucketful....just because they can.

I don't understand sea glass. How are there only a few beaches where it collects?

Reply is longer than possible here. Basically, trash from years ago, wave action, that old saying, "...what goes around, comes around..."

But why does it only wash up on one or two beaches?
