I will be vacationing in Lubec, Maine and I was wondering what good places around there would be good for sea glass hunting.

This will be my first time looking for sea glass and I am so excited about possibly finding some.

Maine Sea Glass and Pottery Shards
by: Claralee

Lived in Maine 70 years. Most successful on beaches near fishing towns on the coast.

Look up the history of various fish factories, including known areas that had a fire, good for finding what is called "Bomb Fire Glass". Many folks back in the day, dumped their trash over the docks.

Search after storms with a ruff wave activity, early mornings before the additional competition of
SeaGlunkologist appear. Each one has its own techniques of finding their treasures.

It takes time to develop a knowledge where you most likey find sea glass. I have searched along the shoreline for an hour empty-handed only to find upon leaving the reward of sea glass.

There seem to be unspoken rules when searching where other people are searching on the beach, give them space and don't take more than your share.

Don't give up and enjoy!

Maine sea glass
by: Katherine L. G.

I live in Maine now for 14 years and I have searched all the beaches that are always mentioned everywhere.

I never found beautiful sea glass in these places. If there is sea glass, they are shards, not beautiful pebbles.

Therefore it is my opinion that it's just a lure for tourists. Finding perfect pieces of sea glass in Maine is nearly impossible.

I'm sure there are a few places where one can find okay sea glass, pretty shells and nice stones but I have found that people will not give away their "secrets" because they sell on Etsy.

Greedy indeed!

Taking home "pounds/hundreds" of glass is why there is none anymore. To many greedy self absorbed people.

Just another indicator of humanities failures.

I wouldn't go there looking for a sea glass bounty...i've been twice this summer and failed to find a piece much bigger than a pinky nail.

I read somewhere at the start of spring . someone claimed to have gotten five pounds. which explains my attraction to the spot.

anyone knowing any good maine spots . please email me .....mainemade4u (at) great luck in your searches

South Lubec Beach

We visited Lubec, Maine this past summer(2011), my grandchildren found over 500 pieces of good seaglass on South Lubec beach. They hit the beach each morning and evening after high tide, it was amazing what they came home with.

Hi there - I live in Machias, ME which is close to Lubec.

Sea Glass is tough to find in the area, as the beaches are quite well kept.

About an hour or so from Lubec is the tow of Milbridge, and a State Park called "McLellan's Park" and you can find some good pieces there.

Also, Jasper Beach in Machias - if you go at low tide and hike to the end of the beach, you can find some nice pieces in the caves.

Best of luck!!!
