Catalina Island

Catalina Island is a place where the gentle rhythm of the waves makes time slow down. It’s a place where you can paddle through crystal clear waters in the crisp morning air, hike amongst the hills and abundant wildlife and enjoy sun soaked massages on the beach in the afternoon.

Avalon, or Avalon Bay, is the only city on Santa Catalina Island of the California Channel Islands, and the southernmost city in Los Angeles County.  Besides Avalon, the only other centre of population on the island is the small unincorporated town of Two Harbors.

Located on the west end at the island’s Isthmus, Two Harbors is a unique and rustic small island village getaway for outdoor and boating enthusiasts. Experience the rural surroundings of Two Harbors and Catalina’s interior.  Enjoy the stunning views of both Catalina Harbor and Isthmus Cove where you can swim, snorkel, scuba dive, or rent a kayak.
