Sea Glass report for Fair Harbor, Fire Island, NY

Usually not that much sea glass is found on Fire Island anymore, but maybe this was just a really good summer for it.

I found about 6-8 pieces for each hour walk I took, especially days after storms, which was often this summer!

Here is a photo of the best of two weeks hunting, but I threw back any pieces that had chips or weren't totally smooth.

Trying to upload photo but it won't let me from my phone. Will try from home computer.

Curious…did other Fire Island beach glass hunters have good luck this summer as well?

OdysseySeaGlass appreciates this and all reports we receive, but we have not been to this beach ourselves and cannot verify this report.

  • Unfortunately, Vivian wasn't able to upload photos yet.
  • Beach was not given a clear rating (stating number of jewelry-grade pieces found per hour).
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.

I only keep Jewelry A grade pieces, so I would say about 6-8 per hour, or Good.
