“Over rated.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

It was probably quite a sight at one time, but with so many people scavenging up all the glass, it's no wonder theres little to admire now. Despite the posted signs I saw dozens of people doing just that. I found a little hidden cove that had some pretty glass, but it wasnt easy to climb into.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

This is a beautiful beach to visit as long as it is not low tide as it is a little stinky but searching for the colored glass that the beach is famous for is tons of fun for the family and it is not usually over crowded.

“Had a blast looking for glass!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

I'm sure this is not the best glass beach in the west coast, but it was our first, and we had a good time searching the little tidepools and shore, trying to find our own little jewels.
