Although each of our glass beaches hold shiny treasures that were once colorful bottles or other waste, it is the pristine, cleaned up beach at MacKerricher State Park (parking at the end of Glass Beach Street) most people visit.
First-time Glass Beach visitors enjoy the novelty, while others come in search of the elusive ruby red glass (made from pre-60’s car taillights), which make up only one in 10,000 pieces.
Glass Beach is also a great place to see sea stack rock formations that give our Coast depth and visual substance. They are also home to a wide variety of seabirds.
