You can find a ton of beach glass at Grand Manan.

You will find lots of beach glass behind the little motel in Grand Manan.

The motel is practically on the ocean and is across from the Shorecrest Lodge.

Going to Grand Manan in June. Thanks for the tip about the beach behind the Surfside Inn. We were planning to go there so glad to hear it won't be a wasted effort. Any other beaches on Grand Manan known to have sea glass?

Note that Westfield near Brundage is totally enclosed by land and does not have sufficient wave action to significantly tumble a glass shard.

Westfield Beach, Grand Bay, New Brunswick, canada

Found 5-10 pieces per hour, mostly rounded edges, brown, white, green.

Approximately 1 mile down from the ferry at Brundage Point, cross over railway tracks to a small stretch of beach.

Addition to the post for Grand Manan sea glass

The little motel you will find good sea glass behind is the Surfside inn. :0)

Also the motel is a good place to stay on the Island if you just want a basic place to stay for a reasonable rate.

They also have a restaurant beside the motel and the food is good with a reasonable price too.
