McVay Rock State Recreation Site

Besides being an excellent destination for finding sea glass on Oregon’s Coastline, here you will also find a great spot for surfing, whale watching, fishing, and clamming.

Haystack Rock is one of the most ‘iconic’ parts of Oregon’s coastline and it’s also a great place to come hunting for sea glass. A word of warning, this beach does get a lot of tourists so if you decide to go beach combing here, come later in the afternoon or early in the morning.
