Orange seaglass
by: Julia

Hi Everyone. Posted in April how I would love to find red or orange seaglass, and guess what?

Yesterday was my first orange for my collection.
Only one problem. It needs to tumble in the waves
more. But I do love it!

Sea Glass San Juan-For Mary
by: Susan-Pompano Beac

If you are facing the Hilton Hotel - look to the left (towards Old San Juan.

Walk a few blocks to your left and you will be at the sports stadium.

Walk another block or so past that, and it's a huge public beach. That's where I found all of the glass.

Also - check this site here for Puerto Rico...They have a list of glass beaches in San Juan.

Playa Ocho is one of them - that's how I found it. (The locals may call it something different - but most know where it is)

The concierge at the Hilton, pointed me in the direction of the public beach.

Good luck!!!

Last November, while in San Juan, we tried to find that beach and even went to the Hilton Hotel but no luck. Can you give more exact directions on how to get there?

Puerto Rico Sea Glass
by: Susan -Pompano Beach

I found a gazillion pices while in San Juan.

There is a public beach - Playa Ocho - behind the sports stadium (near the Hilton Hotel).

There was so much glass, I had to just stop picking it up...my gallon sized zip lock was full in no time.

Lots of browns and greens of course - but found cobalt, clear frosted and sea foam as well.

Happy Hunting!!!
