Fodor's Review

A gravel path on Elm Street three blocks west of Main Street leads to wild coastline with miles of blufftop trails. The sandy coves nearest the road contain dazzling sea glass (from the city dump once in this area) the surf pulverized into beautiful treasures. Some of the glass disappeared after early 2017 storms, but there's still some to see. Don't take any with you, though; it's against the law. There's no swimming at this beach either, for safety's sake. Amenities: parking (free); toilets. Best for: sunset; walking.
