Trip to Glass Beach was underwhelming
Jul 2021
It was a beautiful beach, but to call it a glass beach isn't really true. There are areas where there is some small pieces of glass, I was expecting more.

Worth the visit!!!
Jun 2021
Absolutely unbelievable!!! Gorgeously stunning views of the ocean and an unexpected, hidden, beautiful cove!!! We stopped here and got to see first hand the sands of the beach and the waves crashing in to the shore. This may not be the place to go swimming or surfing but the majesty of this place is incredible. As you stand on the beach you look up to a hill overlooking the ocean that has been a cemetery for many years. What an amazing place to have for those gone to soon.

Not worth your time
Jun 2021 • Friends
We were told to go to “glass beach”, and after the fact, found out there is a great one to check out on the big island. This one left a lot to be desired. We got some nice pictures, but it is very small and there is very little glass. People were there with ziplocks taking glass, and the only public garbage can was overflowing. I don’t recommend this beach. If you are going to the Big Island, check that one out.

Stung by a bee….and that was the highlight. Mostly trash not much glass. We wouldn’t recommend the adventure. Luckily we were just killing time trying to find adventures.

Not a beach to hang out on. We did a Napali coast tour and stopped here after for a few minutes. Garbage all over. Glass is there still. Tiny little pieces. Not very exciting as it sounds

Some glass left
Feb 2021
We have been collecting sea glass for years and even though reviews were bad we had to go.
There is some parking on a dirt road. Someone had left garbage around but other than that jackass the beach is nice. Small...spent about 20 min. walking around and collected a few nice pieces.
I wouldn't suggest a special trip but just like the coffee plantation it as on our way

Not much left... :-(

There are signs asking visitors not the remove the glass from the beach. Unfortunately, they don't appear to be working as there wasn't much left. There were a couple of people there with bags collecting even while we were there. It mostly looks like a beach with washed up garbage now. Very sad.

Waste of time
Nov 2019
Wanna see a tiny "beach" that has no glass at all and is near some gross looking industrial buildings where throngs of people will join you? Then this is the spot for you!

Seriously, total waste of time. It's not worth a minute. Probably had glass before all the tour guides sent everyone here. Now? Nothing but dirt,

Glass?
Mar 2020 • Couples
As other writers noted there isn’t much glass on the beach. Also this beach most likely isn’t going to be close to where you are staying. But if you are going to the Waimea Canyon you might as well spend the twenty minutes that it will take (may want to eat and drink at the Kauai island Brewing if you like craft beer). People have probably picked the nice glass but there’s still some brown, white glass to be found.
