In their March 2011 issue, Coastal Living Magazine named Hatteras Island as one of the three best places to find sea glass in the world. Next to San Juan, Puerto Rico and Hammonassett Beach State Park in Connecticut, the beaches of Hatteras Island are a top pick due to the abundance of ship wrecks just off the coast. You can discover broken bottles, jars and dishware washed ashore just after high tide.
Enjoy a day of beachcombing on your next Hatteras Island vacation or stop in the local art and jewelry shops on the island and discover a colorful array of local sea glass fashioned into jewelry, home décor and anything you can imagine. Stop in the SeaWorthy Gallery in Hatteras village to shop for a sea glass memento or visit Indian Town Gallery in Frisco village, which offer sea glass wrapping jewelry workshops throughout the summer.
On your next Outer Banks vacation, discover why beachcombing is the best on Hatteras Island!
