  • Yes. There is lots of glass on the beach, but nearly all of it is ground to the size of oversized sand particles. There are few pieces to be found that are larger than an 1" in size. There is lots of ...  more »

  • The sea glass is so small it’s literally part of the sand which makes it really cool. There are some big chunks to be found. Not an amazing swim beach
  • Sand is very nice on the feet. It's like a mini message. But trash needs to be addressed. Gets over filled and spreads around the beach area.
  • It’s a very small beach. If you go to the left there is old car parts in the rocks. If you go to the right there is a small area of glass beach. It’s worth going to see if your down that way but don’t make a special trip.
  • So lots of negative reviews here, but i really enjoyed the visit. The sand is really cool looking because it is just glass fragments. Interesting to walk the left side and see the old engines and car parts embedded into the rock.
  • Was neat seeing a beach made of glass but they definitely dumped more than just glass here. It must of been a regular garbage dump. All kinds of trash along the shores just past the beach like truck tires, engine blocks/ parts and tons of other trash!
