Sea Glass

Is there sea glass to be found on Siesta Keys beaches? If not, are you aware of any nearby beaches where some may be found?

Given it comes from rubbish (ie glass bottles) I haven't found any when I have been there. Maybe because not so many litter there or off shore, I don't know. I do remember seeing frequently on SC beaches though.

Can only remember one tiny piece on my local Manasota Key beaches, and Gasparila too.

Maybe better luck on the atlantic side where the waves are bigger and Perhaps more people litter?

Haven't seen any in my years on Siesta Key Beach.

Most you will find is lots of pristine, sugar white sand and seashells.
