Sea Glass in San Juan, Puerto Rico

A lot of variety!

My friend and I went for a four-day trip to San Juan, PR.

These are photos of my stash. I have such a wide variety of colors here.

The weather was beautiful, the first day we were at the beach at high tide and the findings were still good but the next two days we went at low tide and there was much more variety.

The surf was rough those few days so our ankles were beaten up with rocks.

We were there 10/21-10/24/2015.

The beach was quiet but I would not go alone as sometimes there were unsavory people walking the beach.

Playa Pena Beach for sea glass
by: Misty

Playa Pena Beach is literally in front of the Capitol building in Old San Juan. You’ll see a statue in front of the building just across the street. There’s a set of stairs that lead down to the beach behind the statue. There’s lots of sea glass there. The beach is very narrow though so you’ll want to try to go during low tide if possible. Also, it is out of view since it’s below street level and 2 homeless men came down while I visited and bathed in the ocean. They were kind and just waved hi as they passed me but I had friends with me and felt safe. Do not go alone and make sure whoever goes with you is being vigilant of your surroundings while you’re immersed in looking for sea glass. I went to Balneario El Escambron beach afterwards. It’s just down the street from the Capitol but I would take a cab bc it would be a lengthy walk and the street was very busy. It’s a local beach instead of a touristy beach. I really enjoyed it and found lots of glass there as well. The glass at Playa Pena was better, so if you have time for only one, go there.
