Summer's Beach Sea Glass Report -

The nearest town to this beach is Newport, Rhode Island

I found lots of blues, reds and purple colors, lots of marbles and coke bottles pieces. the first hour I found about 20 jewelery quality pieces, I threw back hundreds to age/wash longer.

Beach is best after a storm. Watch out for very slippery rocks you climb over.

Colt State Park, Rhode Island. I'm almost kicking myself for giving this great beach away. It's very rocky and you really can only walk along it at low-lower tides ...

"Summer's Beach"
by: C. Blake

I just want to say, seeing that I am an avid sea glass searcher and beach goer,that the beach pictured & called Summer's Beach is not remotely Newport, R.I.

İndeed it is NEAR the absolute best sea glass spot I've ever experienced, and that is in Naragansett R.I.

I saw a few remarks about Scarborough Beach and that is further south.

The beach pictured is just called Naragansett Beach which is located a short walk from "the pier".

If you were to turn around, with the arches behind you, and walk along the beach wall you will come to a place called Monihans Clam Shack.. (on your left).. immediately after there is a boat launch and parking. Off to the right is a treasure trove..

I've NEVER walked away w/o a minimum of 20 jewelry grade pieces (no photos included) in about 2-3 hours. I also find tons of kick backs (???? Gumdrop looking glass pieces), tons of colored & printed pottery etc....

All along that coast line is amazing (so much so I almost didn't give specific details. .lol)... I will soon submit pictures of my findings.. Am going 2morro and will show what I find in a couple hours of time..



Hi C. Blake,

Thanks for the added information! We'll be looking forward to your photos, be sure to submit them :)

Unable to find Summer's Beach in RI
by: Mike & Stacey

We arrived today at Newport RI with plans to visit Summers Beach based on the sea glass report.

Unfortunately, no one here has ever heard of Summer's Beach. Did it perhaps go by another name?

One of the locals who has lived here 26 years said that he never heard of a beach named Summer's and suggested we explore Gooseberry Beach.

We will head there tomorrow morning.

Regardless, Newport is a wonderful town not to be missed!

Island Park Beach
by: Pamela McFadden

Try Island Park Beach near Portsmouth, Rhode Island - every grade and color, usually on an everyday basis.

This is a small neighborhood beach that has a southern wind sometimes quite strong.

I have an amazing collection from this little beach. I lived across the street for ten years.

I would say luck of the draw, after a storm is best, I will give it a good rating. It can be too crowed in the summer.

It is a very small beach but I never left disappointed.

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.

Thanks again to you and your wife.


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

Gee, my heart races when I hear about all these marvelous finds.

Kudos to this wonderful site and for those who share their finds.

You've got a friend in me,

Norma Myrphy

I love your site, thanks for all the wonderful info.

I'm looking forward to my new hobby and participating in your odyssey Seaglass forum.



David & Linda,

So wonderful to have crossed paths with you and thanks for sharing your expertise on sea glass along with your wonderful website.

Ann & I have caught your infectious seaglass fever! Hope to cross paths again soon.

Happy and safe traveling!
