Forget "Beach Glass Beach". This was a goldmine of glass booty! It's a bit rocky & shallow for a swimming beach, but if you're looking for somewhere to collect your souvenir treasures, here's your beach! Steps from the ancient ceiba tree, this should definitely be...More

We stayed in a house that was to the left of this beach. We could climb over a few rocks and walk a little and we were here. The locals use this beach and there were a few small kids that were playing there with...More

Our innkeeper J told us about this beach because of my friend Sue, who's a big sea glass fan. We found it at the end of a residential road, down some concrete steps. Not great for swimming due to the rocks right at the edge...More

The fun is in getting there...hard to find, but once you get there you find it's quite pretty.
