After the summer... empty beaches?
Check with the locals you run into on the beach...most of them will give you suggestions as to where to look.
Make sure that the beach will be safe at high tide.
Take sun screen and plenty of fluids to drink (you may become so absorbed, you won't realize how long you are out there).
Take photos: One of the worst things we tend to do...getting back home and realizing we don't have pics to share!
The tides may have a big effect on beach glass collecting. Some areas are more productive of sea glass at low tide, some at high tide.
The season (summer/winter) affects many beaches. Right after storms seems to be a good time to go in most places.
If possible, find out if there were any dumps or old communities along the shore where you are visiting. You could hit a great treasure trove!
