Catalina Island is a picture-perfect island paradise and a world apart from the hustle and bustle of the mainland. Only 22 miles off the coast of the southern part of California, you’ll find two different experiences on this island. Historic and endearing Avalon on the east end, and the more rustic and secluded Two Harbors on the west end. Catalina is a great place for play and relaxation with many opportunities for adventure whether you’re coming for the day or the weekend.

Getting here is an escapade all its own with a ferry or helicopter ride across terrific southern California waters. Once you arrive, their hotels will surprise and delight you with their island feel and laid-back hospitality. Catalina Island is full of activities, from shopping to exciting adventures on a zip line or paddleboard. As the sun sets, you can unwind with a meal at one of the many restaurants.

If you’re an adventurer, you can get your heart pumping with a visit to the Zip Line Eco Tour. Some other great things to do on the island include hiking, biking, golf, and museums. Water activities on the island include fishing, kayaking, scuba diving, parasailing, jet ski rentals, and paddleboarding.

For a relaxed pace, check out Avalon’s famous shopping, relax on the beaches, or plan a trip to the spa. You also have the Island tours, which offer a view of the island from the comfort of a boat, jeep, or Hummer!

Once you visit our next island, wild horses won’t be able to drag you away…..
