Martinique Sea Glass Story

Martinique Beaches

Martinique Beaches

Just returned from Martinique last week (1-11). On a cruise so only there a half day.

Walked around from the cruise ship to a very old fort, Fort Louie, only to discover it was still occupied by the French Navy.

As we were leaving early that day we walked to the beach on the bay side of the island where our ship was docked. Beach was only approximately 110 yards by 20 yards. No one there!

Saw an piece of sea glass and when I bent over to pick it up could not believe what I was seeing. Many, many pieces.

All of it was shades of green and white. Only one piece of brown.

Time was short, perhaps 30 minutes, and I managed to fill my hat with sea glass. It was beautiful, fully "done" and great colors.

Want to go back. I have been looking for sea glass for years and the most I have ever found, until now, has been on Man O War in the Bahamas.


Wow, that sounds great! When can we go?

Any photos of what you picked up or the beach?

We found a fair number of good pieces in Orphan Bay, but what a treasure of a spot near the cruise ship docks. We found a hundred at least in 30 minutes. More than you can gather.

Martinique Sea Glass

In December 2016 wife and I were on the Anthem of the Seas. The ship docked in Martinique.

We were looking for a beach to chill out.

A small beach was a short walk from where ship docked. We could not believe what we saw.

Sea glass on the beach.

We filled our pockets. Green, white, brown and blue in color, about fifty pieces in all. Haven't found glass like that since.


In Long Beach Island NJ for the summer. No sea glass but an abundance of sea shells. Found seventy sand dollars yesterday July 17th, all sizes.

Sounds like fun. There are two beaches like that in Bermuda. One is totally sea glass but again, just green, white and brown. Very well seasoned and frosted.
