Glass Beach (中文版：玻璃海灘) is a secluded beach in Yilan, Su'ao Township. The entire beach is covered in a layer of multi-colored sea glass. Waves receding through sea glass makes a very special sound.
Since sea glass takes 30-100 years to form, so please don't take bags of it home with you. Leave some for the rest to see.
Pirate's Cove is only a few minutes walk from Glass Beach.

Because of algae in the water here, it's better to go swimming at nearby Neipi Beach instead.
