Cardiff State Beach

Near: Cardiff-by-the-Sea/Encinitas/Solana Beach, San Diego County, CA

Seaglass hunting on (and near) this beach varies greatly from year to year and season to season.

In past years, I would have rated it "Good," so far this year, it has been "poor."

During years where we have lots of winter storms, more rocks and glass are thrown up on the beach.

During the summer, they plow a lot of the rocks away (to make it more "beachworthy" and the pickings diminish greatly!

Most commonly find white, green, and amber glass.

Very few (if any) rare colors.
