Not worth the hype. The main stairway to the glass was barricaded so you can't go down as of June 2018. Challenging climb down to the other beach. Yes, glass. But nothing spectacular. Good place to watch the sunset, though.

We visited Glass Beach twice during the week we stayed in Fort Bragg. The beach is very easy to find on the north part of the city. There is also a very nice and large parking lot as well as on-street parking. Each time there in the afternoon the glass beaches were full of people, including brides-to-be getting their pictures taken. We went at high and low tide and the beaches were full of sea glass.

There are signs instructing visitors not to remove any of the sea glass to ensure that future visitors are able to see the beaches covered in sea glass. Most people we observed were carefully looking for their favorite pieces of sea glass and placing then in different kinds of containers, so I'm not sure the signs' message holds much significance.

It's fun visiting the different beaches. There are at least three different beaches with different access points that are posted on a sign. Most go the popular and easiest site on West Elm and Glass Beach Drive. A short path down to the beaches and you're own treasure hunt.

This is a very lovely place on a sunny day. Most of the glass is gone and it is quite crowded. Rocks are nice.

This was formerly the dump many years ago and the broken glass and pottery have been washed smooth. Unfortunately so many people have collected the glass, there are only very small bits and pieces left. Visit this site only if you have extra time. There is so many beautiful places along the coast. We were a little disappointed. I understand the glass was much more beautiful in the past.

It's really a beach with a lot of little glass pieces between the stones. It's fun to collect a few and you can do nice walks at the beach. Beautiful ocean views included.
