: 0-2 jewelry grade pieces of sea glass per hour) Description:
Found a dozen amber over the course of two hours, with a smattering of green and even a few cobalt.
Only two pieces even remotely close to jewelry grade, both were amber in color. All were nicely rounded. Comments:
Very easy to get to, ample street parking. ~ By: Candy

Malibu has long been the epitomy of the California beach scene since the 1950s and has been represented in many Hollywood movies.
Malibu Beach is still a favorite for many people and a great place to visit...even if you just hang out and watch the characters going by. Better than television.
Sandy beaches such as Malibu are not know for great sea glass but, as this report shows, you should be able to pick up a variety at sandy beaches that have had lots of visitors over a period of many years. However, much of the old sea glass will be buried by sand and
not visible near the surface.
The best time for Malibu and other Southern California sandy beaches is after a period of big waves or storms. In the summer, a big south swell can roll through. Winter can bring howling storms and even flooding. After big swells or storms, there is a chance of finding older sea glass and other beachcombing treasures.
Bring the kids, the hubby or wifey, the grandkids, the ancient ones...and a surfboard or boogie board for each!
Great fun in the sun. Added by David (Surf Report Office Boy at OdysseySeaGlass.com) Recommended Hotel at Malibu Beach:
