Where to find Sea Glass
As you can see, I travel a lot -- and beachcomb everywhere I can. In 2012, I was lucky to find sea glass in Bermuda that was truly great. And, in 2013, I found a lot of sea glass in Puerto Rico, near Ponce.
In southern California, I found only a few pieces near San Diego and at Coronado. Lovely walk along the bottom of cliffs, blue skies, and ocean roaring. In the Fall, 2012 at Cambria, CA I didn't find much at all along the beach, where people look for moonstones.
One summer we toured Svalbard, Arctic Norway and I actually found a piece of sea glass on a remote island covered with ice, where there formerly (in the 19th century and earlier) was a whaling camp. I wasn't too successful finding sea glass in Sweden or Finland.
In September, 2011, I visited Amelia Island - and was told about a "beach", really just a shore line, where I could find sea glass. I did find sea glass there, but can't share it with you as I promised I wouldn't! I was there again in Fall, 2012 visiting the gallery that carries my jewelry, and again found some beautiful new seaglass on the secret beach.
We went to Chile, Easter Island, Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay. I found some river glass in Uruguay near Colonia, an old Portuguese colony across the Rio Plato from Buenos Aires as well as some old tiles. Also, near Bariloche, Argentina, I found some glass near the lakes there. On remote Easter Island, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, I found some sea glass. So, I did get some great souvenirs to make into jewelry.
In the summer of 2012, we went to Mongolia, China and Tibet. No seaglass there, but check my website for the lovely piece of Gobi desert glass I made into a pendant!! It was weathered by the storms and sand...
As you can see, I travel quite a bit, and have found sea glass in a variety of places. I am happy to share with you some of the best places. Some sea glass collectors are very possessive about their sea glass beaches, but I feel that everyone deserves a chance to find some special piece! Good luck to you -- and have fun.
Hawaii -- i guess it is seasonal-- in the winter, the surf rolls in with sea glass on Maui. I found pieces under and in black stones on the beach near Kaanapali beach (near the Hyatt). You have to patient and persistent!! Also, found a very few pieces at Koki beach, near Hana. Glass Beach on Kauai, Oahu's North Shore (I haven't searched the East Shore) California - Glass Beach at Fort Bragg (may not be allowed any longer), Pescadora Beach south of San Francisco St. Thomas U.S.Virgin Islands Puerto Rico, near Rincon, near Ponce Spain near Gibraltar and near Port Llegat Ohio- along the shores of Lake Erie (Ashtabula, Madison, Eureka, west of Cleveland) Greece - Mykonos, Samos, Patmos, Aegina Islands (not on Santorini) Antarctica I found a few pieces near the abandoned Grivetkin whaling station, seals watching Argentina at Tierra del Fuego, the tip of Argentina Florida- only place I have found a lot -- near Amelia Island Arctic Norway -- at a remote island where once was a whaling camp, now just ice!
Bermuda -- there is a Glass Beach which is all glass, and a small beach near the old fort north of St. George -- where I found seaglass.
I've also found a few pieces in Aruba, the Black Sea, Romania, Lake Tahoe. I'm always searching, and will add more places as I find them. Good luck to you!
Shall I tell you where I haven't found sea glass? I just got back from Florida -- and searched on St. Pete's Beach and Treasure Island and found only three pieces after a few hours. Also, on Hilton Head Island, I have searched a number of times, and have found no sea glass. So, if you are more successful, please let me know!!
I have made custom pieces for people who found sea glass in Rhodes, Greece and Lake Erie, Pennsylvania,Mexico, North Carolina, Maine, and Nice, France! Friends have shared sea glass they have collected in Italy (Lake Como) and along the Potomac River in Virginia. So, if you find some sea glass, contact me if you would like a custom designed piece of jewelry with it. Email at email@example.com
