Sea Glass in the Gulf of Mexico
by: Sandra

Has anybody found sea glass in the Gulf of Mexico from Texas to Florida? If so how frosted are the pieces? I live by the Great Lakes and the pieces are smooth and frosted. We have rocks and waves to tumble the pieces. Where would a good place be to find any on the Gulf?

Hi Sandra, please use the search box at the top right of most of our pages to find all our info on specific places.

Happy hunting,

David and Lin

Navarre Beach, FL
by: Maureen

Had read that Navarre Beach, Florida was a perfect place to find Sea Glass.

Combed the beach for three days (and at low tide) and found none.

Even asked locals and they said they had never found it.

Navarre Beach Sea Glass
by: Lynn

Has anyone found ANY sea glass near Navarre Beach Pier, or Navarre Beach State Park?

Have found a picture of sea glass there, but can't tell where the picture was taken.

Looks to be near some rocks??? Maybe a jetty ???

Please, will be there on Sat and no time..., just wanna hurry to look, in support of my sister who passed away 3 years ago, lived on Bolivar Peninsula and collected soooo much..., so we honor her by trying to find some in other places.

Thanks so much

Visiting from the Grand Strand,SC
by: Susan

My Grandmother found some in West Bay back in the forties...people used to dump their garbage out there.

I wish she was alive to ask her more...all I have now is a couple of mason jars full of sea glass that I have always admired .

Wish I had listened more as a kid.

Seaglass gulf shores panhandle
by: Anonymous

I have been walking the gulf shores for 7 years and have only found 1 piece of seaglass it was thick and about a 2 inch ttriangle.. Aqua blue ...

The area is stunning the water has blue green hues that are really beautiful..the sand is white..swimming is fun the water is clear most of the time so you don't have that ackward feeling of the unknown brushing up against you since you can see most everything around you..

I always hope to find a hidden area where there is some seaglass but as of yet I haven't found any..

I have been from Orange Beach Alabama /Pensacola /Navarre /Fort Walton / Okalosa Island/Santa Rosa/Destin/Seaside/Rosmary/Panama City Beach/St.
Andrews/Mexico Beach/Apalachcola and others in between..

Good Luck
