A unique naturally occurring geologic phenomena that now has great opportunities for fishing, shopping, and dining. We brought our bicycles and enjoyed riding the length of the Spit. We also took a Halibut charter out from the Small Boat Harbor, and dined at multiple restaurants.

Beach town - oh no trailer Park. No room to move or park. It was very disappointing to see what humans can do to a very lovely area. Perhaps in the winter this could be awesome as you could see the ocean and mountains without ALL the RV's.

What pleasure to visit the Spit! It sticks out into the Bay, and is home to a working fishing fleet. There are some great local bars (try the Salty Dog), and some crafts shops with local art and carving, as well as the ever-present souvenir shops. Try a halibut fishing charter - you will catch fish and there are local... More

Hmm expect crowds in July- peak tourist and fishing time. But definitely should be on your travel plans. Book your fishing and accommodation well in advance so you will not be disappointed.

The neat thing about the Spit is that you can say you were there. The bad thing about it is it's wall to wall RVs. Doesn't look all that great. Sorry.

Great place to view Eagles. There is many of them especially in the early morning which gives a chance for a great picture opportunity. And in the afternoon you can eat a fresh fish cought on a day in one of many small, cosy restaurants.

The Spit is a must visit if you are in Homer. Not only do you have the wonderful views over the mountains but there are some really nice shops and restaurants in the area. There is a great harbour and it is from here you can can any number of trips from fishing for Halibut to going on a ferry... More

What a neat place. First off amazing views all around. The spit itself has tons of cute little shops and restaurants which can keep you entertained for a couple hours. Then as your walking around you can check out the daily catch from all the fisherman.
