This year over 3,000 gorgeous glass floats are being hidden along seven miles of sandy beach in Lincoln City Oregon. These glass floats are made by local artisans, and if you find one, the treasure is yours to keep.

Finders Keepers On The Oregon Coast

From the Siletz Bay to Roads End, float fairies will be hiding hand crafted glass floats for beach combers to find starting on June 14th, 2021. The floats will be above the high tide line but below the beach embankment. They're being placed during daylight hours only and hidden throughout the day.

Glass float hunters should be aware of weather and ocean conditions, and be mindful of the environment.
