Name of Beach:

Homer Spit Beach

Nearest Town:
Homer, Alaska

Describe the beach and your sea glass finds:

I live in Homer, Alaska and walk this public beach 3+ times a week all year-round.

This beach is GOOD; on average, I find at least 5 pieces an hour, sometimes up to 15 pieces an hour, depending on the time of year.

Spring and fall bring higher tides and storms along with nicer finds!

You can easily access the beach by parking in the Mariner Park parking lot on right as soon as you drive out (a 4.5 mile long natural spit).

Dogs are welcome.

Walk left, towards the end of the spit.

You must watch the tides as ours are extreme, so go 3 hours after high tide and plan to return no later than 3 hours after low tide.

Glass is found in the gravel, not the sand.

Glass is very frosty, mostly irregular instead of rounded.

I've found all colors except orange, quite a bit of turquoise and olive green along with standard colors.

Pieces are on average 1/2 inch to 1 inch.

We parked in the first lot on the right and walked down to the beach. Within about 20 minutes we found our first piece of green glass. Also some nice orange colored rocks.

Homer Finds
by: Saving Money With Ellen

Homer was our last leg of our journey through Alaska. As all of Alaska the beauty was indescribable. We spent on morning walking along the coast and found a good size handful each of sea glass to add to our growing collections at home in Ohio. We found multiple colors and sizes. If ever in Homer, it is worth taking a water taxi over to Seldovia. Beautiful quiet place.
