Homer Spit juts out from the shore for almost 4½ miles – a narrow flat gravel bar that alternates between desolate empty spaces, active industrial uses, and a busy tourist commercial area.
Despite being over-run with tourists, it remains pretty weird.
By the way, there is only one road down Homer spit and, although water is clearly visible just off the road on either side, it is a well-signed evacuation route. . . just in case you weren’t sure how to get off the spit again.
Probably useful to those who had just a little too much too drink at the Salty Dawg.
