This Glass Beach is located in Fort Bragg, California in MacKerricher State Park. The colorful sea glass was created from YEARS of dumping garbage into the coastline in Northern California. Also, it was an active dump site up till 1967. According to Wikipedia, “The pounding waves broke down the glass and pottery and tumbled those pieces into the small, smooth, colored pieces that often become jewelry quality and that cover Glass Beach.”
Garbage never looked so good!
What started as trash turned into an attraction that many visit on road trips through California. For anyone exploring Northern California, I would definitely add this to your bucket list. Check out how cool this beach is and why you must visit! And, if you’re driving from San Francisco, I recommend bringing some motion sickness pills if you easily get car sick. There are pretty curvy roads through the park. My friend Olivia and I pulled over multiple times to calm our stomachs! Overall, it ended up being worth the drive and to take a few rest breaks. It is a beautiful drive and you can admire the forest as you make your way there. The forest in it of itself is worth the trip!
