Homer Alaska and Anchor Point recreation:
A paved multi-use path runs from the base of the Spit by Kachemak Drive all the way to the Nick Dudiak Fishing Lagoon, with plans to extend it all the way to Land's End. Bikers, runners, walkers and roller bladers share the path. Enjoy the awesome scenery, watch shorebirds in early May and work up a little sweat.
Get your toes wet with a walk at low tide on broad, sandy beaches. Watch those tides, though, or you could get stranded on the other side of tide pools, or forced to walk back along the rougher gravel at the beach edge.
Eagles, shorebirds, gulls and sea birds can be seen along the Spit beaches. Harbor seals, otters and sea lions often swim off the beach -- sometimes even orca whales. After a good southwesterly storm, beachcombing can be excellent for buoys and other treasures of the sea.
ATVs and motorized vehicles are allowed on the inlet side of the beach west of the Fishing Lagoon to the Mariner Park lagoon. Stay off the beach berms and out of the lagoon and the mud flats on the northeast side of the Spit. Drive slowly and respect other beach users. For detailed information on off-road vehicle use, get the Homer Police Department's "Where Can I Ride?" brochure.
Thousands of fishermen are drawn to the Nick Dudiak Fishing Lagoon, located on the northeast side of the Spit. It also is a popular recreation spot, drawing hundreds of fishermen and onlookers as the various runs of salmon come in.
