“beautiful area for beach walking, food, shopping”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

This is a road that juts out into Kachemak Bay, with mountains across the bay. You can park and walk along the beach at low tide. Often, there are otters swimming off shore. There are some good restaurant and plenty of touristy shopping. Most places are only open in the summer.

“Homer spit”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Fun stop. Lots of places to eat, fishing and sightseeing trips available. Camping or up scale condos. Great boat harbor to explore and photograph. Ferry terminal is here. Sometimes most dangerous catch boats are in harbor.
