We visited the beach at an extra low tide to see the tide pools. It was not as interesting as tide pools we have seen in Washington Sate at the shore, but we did see the following: one small starfish, many small gray sea anemones, a couple dead crabs, many small muscles, squirts from small clams, a bald eagle and barnacles. This is a typical northwestern beach experience.

My wife and I walked here after a nice dinner and we enjoyed every bit of it. There were several bird species, some interesting finds on the beach and some lovely vegetation. And it's free, although when the center is open I think you can go with a guide. There was plenty of parking for our RV in the evening after the center closed, but I don't know what it's like during the day.

We weren't sure what Bishop's Beach Park would be, but it was worth taking the time to go. We were there at low tide so there were lots of tide pools. Wear waterproof shoes/boots if you want to walk around the pools. There were a lot of birds, including eagles there. It was breezy and cool. I wish we had had more time to explore it.

22 year Homer resident here. It's funny to me how many people visit Homer and just go to the Spit, seemingly thinking it is the whole town. When locals want to walk on the beach, walk the dog, or just sit in their car having lunch, we tend to go here. Low tide is best but it's nice anytime, but it's a beach in Alaska so be prepared for wind, in particular in the afternoon. Can be accessed from the official park with the picnic shelter, or from the a very short trail at the bottom of Main Street.

We actually found Bishop's Beach by accident and I'm so happy we did. It was a bit breezy but absolutely worth the time. There were trails to walk. Walking along the beach was fairly easy. The views were spectacular! We took several photos. I would definitely recommend stopping by here while you're in Homer. I didn't see any picnic benches, so I'm not sure about packing a lunch and eating there, but it would be a good spot.

Lots of interesting levels and tide pools on one of the lowest tides of the year. Gulls were catching small fish trapped in a tide pool until an eagle landed and scared them away. Boots recommended to cross small drainages.

It was low tide and rainy day when we were there. Absolute worth to visit.
Such an experience to walk for almost a mile into the ocean with low tide and explore the beach. Sandy great beach with amazing scenery. Life time experience for such a tide and observe bird life.

If you're visiting Alaska, you'll notice the beaches are rocky. This little cove area is a gem because you'll actually experience SAND. It's not as windy as down on the spit. You can sit on the beach and soak up some sun. A fun place to let the kids run around while you enjoy the beach.

This was such a fascinating place to walk the beach! There was lots of washed up coal and we even saw a guy collecting coal to heat his house. The sunsets were absolutely stunning! Give yourself some time to explore this magical place!

we walked this beach on an off day from fishing. Our primary reason to come to Homer had been to go fishing and catch fish. Been very successful at that and the walk on the beach out to the end of the area that was easy walking is about 2 - 2.5 miles each way. Scenic and a good source of exercise while enjoying the beach. We went at low tide and this added more spacing when trying to social distance. There were others around but everyone had plenty of their own space.
