Overview of Glass Beach

Glass Beach

California North
USA West

Home

The history of Glass Beach is as colorful as the surf-polished glass that covers it. Once the site for glass bottling factory, it also served as the town dump many years ago. There are still many treasures to uncover on this dive!

Directions: At the North end of Fort Bragg, turn West from Highway 1 on Elm Street (the Northern-most stop light).

03/15/2003 Mike Muraco (Avg: 3.65 Review) - This area has a lot of rock fish, crabs, abalone and kelp. At times when it's calm it is just like diving in an aquarium that is very well taken care of; however, be careful of sharps sticking out of rocks near & on shore. This was a dump a long time ago. Very interesting place to dive!
