Over the last 10 years or so, collecting and crafting sea glass have both become extremely popular. From sea glass necklaces to sea glass wedding jewelry, the creations made from different types of beach glass are extremely versatile.
However, if you want to find sea glass, you have to know where to look. If you're interested in collecting sea glass, here are a few of the best sea glass beaches in the world.
Glass Beach of Fort Bragg, California
Located in Northern California's Mendocino County, Fort Bragg is home to the aptly named Glass Beach. This beach is one of the most popular in the nation for sea glass lovers, as it is home to countless colorful treasures. In fact, the cove is famous because it's completely covered in sea glass. In lieu of sand, small, colorful beads of eroded glass create a beautiful landscape for nature photographers and sea glass collectors alike.
Glass Beach on the Island of Kauai Island, Hawaii
Known as the Garden Isle for all of its beautiful, lush flora, this Hawaiian island is also home to a Glass Beach. Here, there are millions upon millions of small pieces of blue, aqua, brown, green, and occasionally red sea glass. The abundance of sea glass is a result of the very rough and porous volcanic rock that makes up much of the coast around the island.
Alexandra Battery Beach in Bermuda
Bermuda is traditionally known for its beautiful azure water and pink beaches, but there's another reason travelers love this location so much. Thanks to its jagged reefs, intense storms, and a history of being a port island, this destination is filled with sea glass as far as the eye can see. Alexandra Battery Beach is one of the most popular locations to search for sea glass, as it is known for being filled with the beautiful, frosted pieces of eroded glass.
Hunting for authentic sea glass to create sea glass necklaces and other types of sea glass charms can be difficult, but a single trip to any one of these beaches could provide you with a lifetime's worth of beautiful treasures.
