It’s exciting to spot a shard of sea glass on the beach, especially the ones dropped in front of my feet by a wave. If it’s possible to get a picture of a shard of sea glass lying on the beach, I’ll snap one. Sometimes, however, I have to pick up the shard quickly before another wave comes in and takes it back out to sea.
Sea Glass on the Beach
Here are a few of my favorite sea glass on the beach pictures. Most of them were taken near my home in Redondo Beach, California. Other pictures were taken on a beach in Santa Barbara, California called Summerland, and a few were taken in Fort Bragg, California on Glass Beach.
I’ll keep adding pictures of sea glass on the beach as I keep traveling farther from my home to find sea glass.
My husband who usually never goes sea glass hunting with me found this sea foam (soft blue) beauty in Redondo Beach. I wish he would go sea glass hunting with me more often. He has good luck finding it.
I found this nice piece of sea glass on Summerland Beach in Santa Barbara.
I found this pretty aqua blue piece of sea glass in Redondo Beach. I find soft blue and sea foam shards often on this beach when the conditions are right. The most common colors I find are clear and green.
This piece of green sea glass was laying on the sand after a wave went back out to the ocean in Redondo Beach.
I found this little clear green sea glass gem on Cabrillo Beach in California. I went to Cabrillo beach at low tide and climbed around on the rocks. There were lots of small little pieces of sea glass among the rocks; however, most of them were small and clear.
Usually I throw the clear ones back into the sea to get more frosty for future sea glass collectors. Cabrillo Beach is a great beach for a fun family day with kids. There’s also a museum, and there are a lot of tide pools for kids to explore. Be sure to go at low tide when the sea glass and tide pools are more accessible.
