“Today's Bud bottle is tomorrow's Sea Glass!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

It's a little hard to find, and the access stairs are steep... the handrails rickety. Wear shoes... duh! Signs warn you to leave the glass for others - apparently people come down and collect buckets-full of the stuff. It gives you a reason to visit what would otherwise be a small, somewhat unpleasant beach. Look for the cool patterns fashioned into the walls and walkways.

Spent a long time collecting glass and hope to get more on my next trip. Amazing what the currents do to the glass. Beautiful for jewelry making

Who would have thought a glass strewn beach could be such an attraction and such fun to take the family to.

“If you are curious about sea glass, then stop here!”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

I was very curious to see a beach covered in sea glass and was not disappointed. We walked from the Royal Naval Dockyard. After you cross the bridge, stay to the right when the street splits. Once you get behind the apartment buildings, look for a little picnic shelter. There are steps that lead down to the beach right by that. The beach is COVERED in sea glass. It does look like it was once an old dumping ground. There were a few people there looking through the glass to find some treasures. We also saw some squid who "inked" when you got too near. This is not a place to be barefoot or to swim. It makes a good adventure for the last day of your cruise as you can walk there and then take the bus back to the Dockyard and visit all the stores. There was one booth in the craft market where a gal was actually demonstrating making sea glass jewelry and several that sold sea glass jewelry. I just find it fascinating.

“Absolutely crazy!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Ok. Anyone who says they went here and it isn't mind boggling is not thinking clearly! The glass is awesome and the sounds of the waves over the pieces is soothing. We were respectful and took only photos and no glass to preserve the beauty for others. Take the local bus to Albert row apartments (they are blue) and walk between the buildings down the stairs and the view is there and amazing! Locals grill there and they have benches and tables and a dock. Also a trail leads off onto the woods to the right which is shady and private. Nice for a picnic or just enjoying the view. Worth a bus ride and some photos to remember. Please leave the glass for others. A great secret spot!
