~ Beach glass report submitted by Chuck in Bedford, Ohio*

Very long beach (over a mile) just to the west of Geneva-on-the-Lake, Ohio. 

Very stony for a Lake Erie beach, and lots of glass. 

I would rate it Good, though this doesn't reflect the huge amount of slightly sub-jewelry grade glass, especially blues, to be found here. (*See note below)

Most of my best finds were clear or green, but cobalt blue, seafoam (soft blue), and light purple come up at least once an hour. 

By the time you walk to the end of the beach, the waves have mixed up everything you just covered, making the trip back just as productive. 

One can spend hours here and just keep finding more!

Conneaut Park
by: Heidi

I live in Conneaut and the best place to find glass is at the beach by Conneaut Twp Park.

I have many blues, greens, clear, ambers, and even some yellow, reds (bright red and crimson) and a couple purples.

The purple are the neatest. They look black but when they are wet you hold them to the light they are deep dark purple! I have a piece that is bright purple too.

Wish I could find someone buying beach glass to sell the rare colors to!

I have been hunting beach glass for years and I haven't found a honey hole yet!

I've hunted Lake Erie, Lake Huron, and so far Erie is the best

I have searched from Toledo to Pennsylvania. I have found black and reds and some baluster's!

About 3 years ago, my wife and spent the summer in Geneva on the Lake.

A girl we met on the beach introduced us to sea glass.

We became obsessed and spent many wonderful hours combing the shores of Lake Erie.

We found many beautiful pieces and hundreds of tiny pieces.

Our favorites were the cobalt blues and sea foam greens (pretty rare).

We live in Florida and have only rarely found anything here.

Very cool hobby!

Geneva Glass
by: Alex

I've been going to Geneva with my cousins for five years now.

Over those years we have found many pieces: reds oranges turquoises marbles and many jewelry grade pieces.

I think all 5 of us together have found around 15,000 pieces.

Hi David,

I received your sea glass hearts and I LOVE them all.

Thank you so much for sending the extra hearts.

I was so touched by your thoughtfulness and I appreciate you sharing these special gifts from the sea! Hope to see more of your sea glass soon!

Thanks again,


Hi David,

Just wanted to tell you thank you for the monthly sea glass newsletter. I love it, and look forward to it.

Hi David,

I just wanted to let you know I appreciate receiving my sea glass order so quickly.

Love the flowers, wave crest & rare pastels and the little extra surprise....you made my day!!


I am so fascinated by sea glass - I can’t believe at 70 I found a new hobby.

Thanks for the opportunity to search and read up on this!


Your site made me so happy tonight! Why?

Many happy memories swirled back into my mind when I saw your pictures. I spent my childhood on the beaches of Cape Cod and we spent many happy hours looking for sea glass."


It is a pleasure and refreshing to meet people in the sea glass community that are willing to share! I got some great tips from your site. It was wonderful not to spend my entire vacation looking for a beach. Thanks again!

Hi David and Lin.

Love your sea glass web site. I enjoy your picture of the month and intend on winning at least once.

I have been collecting and creating things from sea glass for over twenty years. I find my sea glass on the beautiful shores of Lake Erie in Cleveland Ohio.

Thank you for sharing your treasures with me. Yours truly,

Cathy Lincks

Just wanted to let you know (since you were so helpful) that I won a blue ribbon (1st place) in Gifford Middle School Science Fair in the category of Environmental Science with my topic - Effect of a Florida Tidal Inlet on Wrack Line Sea Glass Volume.

Now, I will compete in the Regional Science Fair which will take place on Feb 2nd. My mom and dad and I had a lot of fun searching for sea glass.


Mary Hyde

I am beginning to be a typical sea glass hunter - always looking for fun places to find glass!

Hi David and Lin,

I have shared your website with my other sea glass fanatic friends over the last couple of years and they love it as much as I do.

Yours is my favourite website of all time and the very best website I've seen for everything sea glass.

I can lose myself for hours in your website. Dangerous place!

Anne O, Toronto

Thanks so much for the information.

I visited Carbon Beach today.

Very small and few people but a nice supply of glass just as you stated.



Hi Lin and David,

I have come to sea glass via my shell collecting and am finding it very addictive too. Last year I found a glass bottle stopper which was a thrill.

I really enjoy the newsletter and can easily spend an evening getting lost in the stories and comments.


Anne Cram

Just wanted to thank you for all of your helpful information.

The sea glass community is filled with people who guard their secret beaches so it is refreshing to see that there are people who are willing to share.

It's so useful for those of us that don't live near a beach and travel to find our glass.

The information posted here lets us spend more time enjoying our adventure rather than wasting time looking for a great spot

Thanks again,

Anonymous Viewer
