My first time to glass beach. I would love to know the history behind it. It is a very nice place. This is also my first time in springdale.

It's nothing like anything you have seen before. It's small but there is a nice place to sit. The water waves come in real good too.

I first discovered sea glass on a trip to Jamaica about 1 yr ago. Was so excited to find this Glassy Beach full of sea glass. Very tiny beach but loaded with sea glass. Very cool stop.

Great find at Glassy Beach. So much glass! Such a small beach! We met a man there that lived in the area all his life and it was his first time ever to the beach. He was quite tickled. Lovely!

Tiny Rocky beach with a lot of sea glass, but people have been picking over I guess so not as colorful anymore...

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.

A sea glass lovers paradise and so beautiful! It's not that hard to find and a little hike down but well worth it!
