Bar Harbor, Maine Sea Glass
The rock bound coast of Maine is a great place to find sea glass of all colors.
The glass in Maine has a tendency to collect at the high tide line on Bar Island which you can walk to at low tide across a sand bar. ~ by Matt (Pennsylvania, USA)
This report was submitted on Oct 25, 2015. Lin and I had received other reports on sea glass from Bar Harbor. Looking it up on the map, though, we saw that it indeed is a harbor, which means protected waters which means no waves which means very poorly-tumbled glass.
We did not get any photos from all the glass reported (see all the comments below) until the date of the photo above by T. Rose (in Catch of the Day)
The photo shows some interesting glass, but as we stated, the glass is obviously hardly tumbled and resembles broken glass more than what you would consider beach glass.
Thank you, T. Rose, for finally giving us a photo so we know what to expect
when heading for Bar Harbor.
Please, all, read the comments below before planning a trip to Bar Harbor.
Although Bar Harbor may not be a very good destination for sea glass, the area is beautiful and well worth visiting. Hiking the beaches near Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park is very rewarding for other beach finds, amazing scenery, and very rewarding.

Disclaimer OdysseySeaGlass appreciates this and all reports we receive, but we have not been to this beach ourselves and cannot verify this report. As always, we remind folks that sea glass beach reports are not confirmed by Lin or me at Odyssey Sea Glass unless otherwise stated.
Reports that do not include photos of the sea glass found are less reliable. Please use your own judgement in deciding whether to travel to this particular beach or not.
