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 ...

Weekapaug, Rhode Island - Sea Glass

Pieces are usually pretty small, but is not rare.

I found quite a few pieces in a very short period of time, but only a few are jewelry grade.

"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

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.
