The One Beach In Alaska That You Absolutely Must Visit At Low Tide
Kodiak is Alaska’s Emerald Island, and rich with natural and historical significance. Fort Abercrombie Historical State Park houses the ruins of a World War II coastal defense installation. The park is full of endless opportunities for family-friendly outdoor adventure from the surf-pounded cliffs, deep spruce forests, wildflower meadows and a scenic lake. But this place is also the best spot for tidepool exploration in Alaska. Wait until the perfect time and check out the low-tide where you can find sea plants and animals that thrive in the tidepools. The park is a wonderful place to spend the day seeing all there is to see, especially the shoreline at low tide.
