~ 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.

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.

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

What an AWESOME site! I love reading about it, looking at all of your pictures, and planning my next vacation to the perfect beach.

Keep up the great work!

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!

I think your site is great - very informative - thanks for the time and effort you put into it.

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



David & Linda,

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

Happy and safe traveling!
