No sea glass in Florida?

Found March 2,2018. 😎

Everyone talks about never finding any sea glass in Florida. Well, i found some. And in an unlikely place.


Found all this in a little more than an hour. It is very well frosted but barely rounded or softened. (Couple of small pieces are)

Found at Ben T Davis Beach, right off the Courtney Campbell Causeway. Next to Whiskey Joes.

Sea Glass on Davis Island, Florida
by: Anonymous

June 29, 2018

I lived for many years in Tampa Florida.
Davis Island back in the early days was a dumping area for Tampa. So that is why there may be a lot of glass found there.

Count yourself lucky!

Ben T. Davis Beach
by: Monica

Ben T. Davis Beach has been a dumping ground of trash and garbage for many many years.

I remember in the 70s beach warnings were posted about walking barefoot on the beach because of all the IV needles that were there.

On a lighter note, it is glorious to see that little beach become revived. It is a nice little area and closer for many who live nearby to go too for fun and relaxation. It looks pristine and pleasant.

I will go there now to look for homegrown seaglass.

Thanks for the tip.

It is glass found in the sea, therefore it is sea glass!!

Bet you were excited

That's great. Folks from Whiskey Joe's must have been walking the beach and throwing their bottles in the ocean. I've been on many beaches (on the opposite side) on the Gulf side of FL and never found one piece. Discouraging.

Poor quality

Yes, you can find pieces of broken glass on the beaches in FL but I wouldn't consider this sea glass.
