Beachcombers are a worldwide community interested in sea glass, beach glass, seashells, beach fossils, rocks, mudlarking, glass floats, driftwood, conservation, wildlife, jewelry, art, travel destinations, and more. Our diverse community includes sea glass hunters, jewelers, artists, shell collectors, mudlarks, bottle collectors, and rock hounds, all with different interests and expertise. 

Whether you are trying to identify your latest find, enter your best piece in a contest, or shop for beautiful pieces created with beachcombed finds, you can connect with other beachcombers at in-person events, through Beachcombing Club, and on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
