Explore the beautiful Glass Beach in California

Glass Beach – Glass Beach is a very beautiful and unique destination west of Fort Bragg, California. The scenery here is spectacular with cliffs and crashing waves. This is definitely one of the coolest beaches in California.

Originally, this was a city dump by the sea. The landfill was closed in the 60s of the last century, but of course people did not clear the garbage. Αs the years went by, the ocean’s waves crashed in and abraded, polishing all the broken pieces into shiny, multicolored “sea glass”. You can find green, blue, red, amber, brown and transparent tablets.

For many years, groups of tourists have continuously come here and picked up sea crystals to bring back. They seem to think that the source of sea glass here is endless. Finally, before this unique landscape completely disappeared, the authorities took over and the taking of sea glass was completely banned. Glass Beach also has a lot of beautiful seashells to bring back as souvenirs.

Visiting Glass Beach will cost you free entrance and parking fees.
