There are three major sea glass beaches in Bermuda where amateurs of sea glass can have the best chance to find some.

There isn’t any beach specifically called Sea Glass Beach, whether in Hamilton or anywhere in Bermuda. The one that is commonly thought of being the best Sea Glass and often mistaken for being in Hamilton is in fact located a mile outside the Royal Naval Dockyard, across from the Naval Cemetery and the Convict Cemetery. Fortunately for those who have a passion for collecting sea glass, this beach isn’t very known to tourists.

This place is actually called Black Bay Beach. When the British Navy was still in residence in Bermuda and in the Royal Naval Dockyard, they had their social facilities near the beach. It was then a habit for them to throw their empty bottles out of the window on the beach or in the sea.The sea glass beach is not suitable for swimming or sunbathing so it is always quiet apart from collectors of sea glass.

Although it is a good place to find many bits of sea glass, this beach has mostly green sea glass, along with white, clear and brown ones. Some people have reported findings of blue and even lavender sea glasses but it is quite rare here. The sea glass beach is completely covered at high tide so time your visit perfectly.
