~ question about Texas Gulf Coast sea glass submitted by Anonymous

Question: Are there any good sea glass beaches on the Texas Gulf Coast?

Thank you for submitting this question.

If you go to our page US Beaches Other - Gulf Coast page, you will see that there are a number of beaches listed.

The one that seems to be most reliable is High Island, Texas, with several photos from seaglassers there.

Sea glass has been found on other Texas gulf coast beaches; for example, Galveston's Bolivar Peninsula, West Beach, and Port Arthur as well as Corpus Christi, Crystal Beach or South Padre Island.

However, it's hard to say what you will find without photos of the sea glass from those beaches.

In other words, you can find sea glass at these beaches but how much can you expect to find on an average day?  Or is it well worn and tumbled?

We would love to have some more reports on beaches in Texas. Go to Sea Glass Beach Reports and follow the easy instructions to add your report or observations.

Remember to take your camera to get those on-the-spot sea glass photos.

When you have the chance to go looking for sea glass at one of the above beaches or another Texas gulf beach, time yourself and give us a report (with a photo if possible) when you get back!

Have a great time and happy hunting.

BOLIVAR PENINSULA
by: C. GUILFORD

Oct 23, 2016

We were on the beach in Bolivar today for about 5 hours and came home with almost 100 pieces of glass from pinky nail size to silver dollar. Mostly clear and brown but a few green mixed in.

I bet we only walked a few hundred yards either way from the car so no long walking involved.

Bolivar Peninsula Glass
by: Joanie R

My sea glass loving friend and I did a spring break trip along the Texas coast from Port Arthur to Port Aransas. Found the best glass on the Bolivar Peninsula around the High Island area. Also saw a rattlesnake in the ferry parking lot - be careful!

High Island, Tx. report
by: Kay Carruth

Always find HUNDREDS of pieces of the most common colors of clear, green & brown but of craft grade.

On my last trip 2 wks. ago, I found a BEAUTIFUL, rounded cobalt blue!!

I thought I was seeing things!

Of the 4 yrs. that I have been going there, I've only found 4 pieces of jewelry grade (round like a marble), so these are pretty rare finds.

The only things that I've never found are a bottle stopper or a fishing float...maybe one day!!

Bolivar Peninsula
by: Dawne

We were on Bolivar Peninsula in June.

We found lots of sea glass on the paid jetta area where everyone goes to fish!

The grade varied but we found at least half a dozen jewelry grade pieces in an hour just within the 30 yards or so that we searched.

We found white, green, blue and amber colors...as well as a little red piece.

We just happened to find it, did not go out there to collect sea glass...but now I have a new passion!

Texas Sea Glass
by: David (editor)

Just checking in to see if you were able to find any sea glass on the gulf coast in Texas. We have had very few reports, yet I would suspect that there are a few good sea glass beaches on the Texas Gulf coast.

Let us know if you've turned up anything.
