, Pacific Beach
, and Mission Beach
, all part of San Diego, CA, are all one continuous stretch.
I walk and run here regularly.
Sea glass finds are Poor to Fair (on a good day).
Most glass that I have found here wasn't ripe, and the few pieces of true sea glass were brown, green, and, less commonly, clear.
If you are hunting sea glass in the San Diego region, I recommend La Jolla's Shell Beach
near San Diego (not the Shell Beach near Pismo Beach, N. Cal), which has been reviewed on this site.
--- Poor - 0 piece of jewelry grade sea glass found per hour.
--- Fair- 1 to 4 pieces of jewelry grade sea glass found per hour.
