Glass Beach at Pudding Creek

Glass Beach is one of the most fascinating beaches in the world. In 1949, residents used this area as a glass and refuse site. Once the land became protected, nature repaired itself by smoothing over the rough pieces of glass to create the sand that makes up Glass Beach. Most of the larger pieces of smooth, colorful glass have been reclaimed, but visitors still get lucky and stumble across one of these marvels every now and again.
