“Pretty”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Rock formations are very majestic. Swam out to a large rock and climbed up it! Felt so alive I could hardly stand I was so excited! Good for families.

“Glass, glass, glass”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

We spent a day in Ft. Bragg on our Northern California trip just to go to Glass Beach. We're big beach glass hounds and have collections from around the world. Don't let the naysayers scare you away. This was an amazing place, if not just for experiencing the force of nature along the water's rocky edge. We were there in early February, the weather was cool but not miserable, and the glass was fascinating. I'm sure for the purists it's not as good as it used to be, but if you like to collect glass on the beach you will NOT be disappointed.
