Glass Beach

A must see while on the coast, the famous Glass Beach is located right here in Fort Bragg. Our tips: Go at low tide and explore the newly opened second glass beach. It's about 100 yards south of the main beach (from which much of the glass has been taken from). Come see, but please leave the glass for future visitors.
