Create an itinerary including Homer Spit
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.

  • Just beautiful, and pictures don't do it justice when you are standing there looking at the mountains, water, and shoreline!

  • I"ve been there several times but still love the place. Plenty to do, see and shop. Many places closed after 2020.
