There is a sign, and a stairway that leads down to the beach. The sign says not to take any sea glass with you

A few samples as displayed by hand model Susan

It is not a very large beach, but it does look like they keep adding glass

It has even been used for this

Where is the glass beach? I wish I had known about this when I was there. Guess I will need to plan another vacation to Bermuda. 😀

@superduper123 it was only about a 1.2 mile walk from the ship. We followed the route that I marked in red on the attached photo.

The original 'glass beach' is near St. George's; this one is near the Dockyard.

You are welcome.  Hope you found something useful.  

 

I was surprised this this one had about the same amount of views as the 14 day Med cruise report I just finished.  Maybe not as much interest in Med cruises from the UK.

Usually just once per cruise.  Ask your MDR wait staff.

That’s right.  Bob beat me to the answer, but it is only once during the sailing.

Now a little about the hotel. The Best Western we are at is just off 95 and 895. You can see traffic is all red this morning at 9:45.

This hotel is a little old and worn.

The view out the back of the hotel is not the greatest.

  "they keep adding glass" . . . i picture someone running over to Michael's Craft Store and grabbing a few bags of those heavily polished glass pieces they sell there (just like whats in the pic above) and dumping them on the beach to make the silly tourists go "OOOOH MY GAWD, VINNY ...LOOK HOW BEAUTEEEEFUL!" ...
