Great family beach with lots of area to walk the dog and the kids. Main parking area and then you stoll.

This area of Homer as were all areas of Homer, was so so beautiful. Lots of locals gathered and walking along the beach. Perfect spot to watch the sunset.

This is one of the few spots in Homer to hit the beach. Enjoy! Homers most popular unofficial dog park, (Bishops Beach). Low tide is the best time to go.

We did not see any wildlife but we had a nice time walking the beach and the trails into the marsh. Free parking.

Easy and plentiful parking with direct beach access. Walked along an hour or so after low tide. Saw an eagle, harbor seal and several otters in our walk up the beach.

Beautiful beach at low tide. Tide pools to explore unusual rocks to collect as well as snail and clam shells. Easy access.

This beach and adjoining estuary are perfect places to walk and to see wild life. There are moose, eagles, cranes, and a variety of migrating birds.

Easy to get to, beautiful and peaceful. Not overrun with tourists. Great contrast to the spit on a busy day!
