“Sea glass paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

This place is a sea glass collectors paradise! We took the bus and got off at the closest stop.... a short walk behind some houses and we found the "secret stairs" to get down to this spot. It was great! I found all sorts of colors and shapes of beautiful glass.... just be sure to wear shoes!

“Today's Bud bottle is tomorrow's Sea Glass!”
4 of 5 stars 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.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

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

“One Man's Trash is anothers Treasure”

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!”
5 of 5 stars 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.
