Sea beans are seeds or seed pods grown on land that somehow make it into the ocean currents where they start their journey to new lands. The travelling seedlings were first recorded in 25 B.C. and since that time a legion of collectors have scoured beaches looking for rare finds.
“I started taking my daughter searching for sea beans when she was one-year-old. It’s something we still share.”
They can travel for thousands of miles, are said to have mystical powers and right now is the best time to collect the elusive sea bean as you walk along our local beaches.
