Homer Spit, Homer

#1 of 10 in Beaches in Alaska
Must see · Biking Trail · Beach
Alaska is known for its natural phenomena, and Homer Spit is among the most remarkable. No one is certain how this Kachemak Bay landmark came into existence. A strong earthquake in 1964 significantly reduced its size and killed most of its lush vegetation. But that didn't stop the spot from turning into a popular tourist destination lined with shops and restaurants. Choose from a range of activities such as boat trips, camping, fishing, kayaking, and walks down the long beach. You can access the spit by a car, but parking lots might be crowded. Make Homer Spit a part of your Homer vacation plans using our Homer day trip planning website.
