Homer, Alaska (Kenai Peninsula)
A short trip across Kachemak Bay brings you to the charming village of Halibut Cove, a tiny island community of artists, craftspeople, and anglers. On the way you will pass by Gull Island, a bird sanctuary in the bay that's home to nine nesting species, including red-faced cormorants, puffins, and gulls, as well as numerous migrating visitors. This spectacular 4.7 acre ocean-front parcel across from the public dock has great beach access, several potential building sites, fantastic hiking trails, and great berry picking in late summer. Halibut Cove is a little jewel tucked away in Alaska's first state park, Kachemak Bay State Park. The park area is a total of 400,000 acres of mountains, glaciers, forests, coastline and ocean. Visitors frequently observe sea otters, harbor seals, porpoise, and a variety of whale species. Fishing in this area is world-class and exciting, offering the opportunity to catch huge Halibut, several species of Salmon, Rockfish, and Lingcod. This is the perfect spot to build your dream home, executive retreat, or family get-away and live the true Alaskan lifestyle in a spectacular and pristine setting.
