Best Things to See and Do in Adak Island

The black sands in Adak Island are a little eerie, but also make it a very beautiful destination to visit in Alaska. Situated at the fag end of the Andreanof Islands, the long spit of small islands reaching into the Pacific Ocean from Alaska’s southwest border, the abandoned naval base from the Cold War era also make Adak Island a little spooky place. An emerging tourist destination in Alaska, tourists are attracted to the breathtaking natural landscape of Adak Island, as well as its military history, abundant caribou herd and bird watching. It’s no wonder that this unique destination has lots to offer.

Visit the famous Adak National Forest and see its only cluster of 33 pine trees. Adak Island though has few trees, and the semi-official signage of the U.S. Forest system has honored with the sign of a “forest” since the early 60s – and, it’s all in good humour. This is surely a must visit attraction in Adak Island. 

The beautiful Horseshoe Bay located near the former Loran Station on the northern end of Adak Island is a major attraction for tourists, who take the help of a rope to descend the steep slope to the bottom.
