New Brighton State Beach (Santa Cruz County) Sea Glass Report

New Brighton State Beach California

Rated: Poor


Took a quick walk here last week and didn't see anything. Might be worth exploring more - there is an area called 'China Beach' where there was previously a Chinese fishing village.

More info:

New Brighton is near Santa Cruz in Northern California. South of Santa Cruz off Highway 1 is the town of Capitola on the beach. South of there you'll find New Brighton.

It is really a beautiful beach with forested cliffs, nearby camping, lots of sand, and probably some good sea glass depending on the time of year and wave action.

Lin and I spent a couple of hours there a year ago and didn't find any sea glass, but the grandkids have found sea glass at the beach right next to it, Seacliff Beach.

I spent a lot of time there surfing and camping back in the days when I lived in Capitola and Santa Cruz in the 1960s and 70s and have always had great memories.

When the rocks are there, you'll find sea glass
by: Patty

This beach, which is actually three continuous beaches in a row, New Brighton, Potbelly, and Sea Cliff, will definitely have good sea glass there when the rock piles are also on the beach.

I could spend hours digging through the rocks and will always find some really nice jewelry-worthy pieces.

But when there are no rocks, not much chance to find glass.
