Loved all the sea glass, its a shame so many tourist take so much home. Would have loved to see this beach 100 years ago.

We were a bit disappointed to find this beach not to be what the name and description had stated. It was not difficult to locate as we followed the directions exactly the way it was described but parking was a bit challenging. We just parked above the beach area and walked down. It is not actual glass---a lot of glass was picked up already as people clear out the pieces of glass that appear here. We only spotted a sprinkle or two. Go if you are curious but don't expect much there.

The trip to Glass Beach is worth the stop. But you won't need much time once you get there. It is a small beach. A lot of the glass is gone. Once you get on the beach, veer to the left for the area where most of the glass has collected. It is cool to see and imagine what the beach looked like when the entire beach was covered.

This beach at one time may have been loaded with glass, but over the years it's been depleted. It's small but does have a nice view.

Not much glass here anymore. I am sure it is well picked over. Did find a few small pieces in all sorts of colors. Still very interesting to visit after seeing the old cemetery
