Lin and I (David) from OdysseySeaGlass.com moved to Huanchaco, Peru in August of 2013.

We didn't know what to expect in regards to sea glass but of course were hoping there would be something.

Wow, what a surprise!

Huanchaco has turned out to be one of the best beaches we have found among many.

Huanchaco doesn't rank with Fort Bragg as far as quantity or Seaham England for rarity but it does have quite a bit of very beautifully tumbled and frosted sea glass.

The colors include beautiful shades of green, teal, and blue. White is predominant but common brown and green are not that common.

There is almost no glass that has to be thrown back. When you find a piece, it is likely to be perfect!
