If you like beach glass it's worth a look if you have the time. I've spent my life beach combing but have never seen anything like it. Small cove after a short trail walk. No one else the evening we went.

You might have to ask a local how to find this awesome beach but, if you're in Springdale, it's sure worth a visit. Years ago, the locals dumped their trash in the bay and for whatever reason, much of the glass ended up on this...More

This is a bit tricky to find (drive to the end of Springdale and on a dirt road) but once you find it, it’s worth the stop. Beautiful glass overs the small, quaint beach. Very cute!

Just an old dump touted as a "must see beach". The view from the "beach" is spectacular, but make sure to bring repellant if coming in the evening and take your time driving in as the "parking lot" has some monster potholes.

tiny beach but for anyone who likes sea glass it is a a treasure trove!! Lots of fire melt glass which was neat to see.. am guessing most of the glass is from a dump site or local incinerator. Worth a visit for sure!

It seemed like shards of glass and china had recently been added to the actually sea glass located there. Unfortunely there was a lot of garbage in the area.

My partner and I were doing some geocaching in the area and decided to check out Glassy Beach, after reading and hearing so much about it in the news. The beach is very small. There is quite a bit of 'new' sea glass, but not...More
