Locals and tourists alike come here to rest, renew , walk the beach and admire the sunset. Enjoyed their bonfires and happy dogs running around.

There are walking trails as well as just exploring the beach. The views are stunning. Easy access to clean outhouses and picnic areas with shelter are available.

We spent a wonderful morning, walking the trails and collecting rocks along the beach. At the end of the trail you come upon a wonderful bakery... definitely worth a stop for coffee and a treat!

We walked along Bishop's Beach - didn't see any animals or eagles, guess the wind was just to strong, but loved the waves and beautiful water.

We loved going there in the evenings. So many eagles and I took my camera to get some great shots. The gorgeous marsh area is a place you can really watch the birds.

The rocky coast of Alaska is an Agate stone finders dream. Homer's Bishop's Beach is no different. At low tide visitors can walk deep into the tidal floor in search for agate. There are walking trails just off the beach, bathrooms, and decent parking.

Awesome views and a nice beach area to explore. Parking was fine and the kids had a great time exploring the beach and getting their feet wet in the waves.

Make sure to wear your rubber boots and take a bucket for all your treasures! Check low tide schedule and try to go when it’s the lowest, you will be able to walk out really far. BE AWARE OF THE TIDE. Comes in fast When...More

Every month there are high tide and minus (very low) tides. It's easy to get a tide book, or look on the NOAA tide tables on the internet to find out which days are minus tides days. Those days will also have the very high... More
