Relax, snorkel and swim, or experience adventures such as diving in a mini submarine and zip-lining, all on Catalina Island, just 22 miles (35 kilometers) off the Coast of Los Angeles.
Step off the ferry and onto the streets of Avalon, the main city, and head straight to the beach or stroll through the art galleries and souvenir shops. Catalina was developed in the late 19th century and features quaint old hotels and a gorgeous art deco casino.
Dive or snorkel right off the pier or hop aboard a glass-bottom boat to gaze at local marine life. Organize a dive in a mini submarine to see octopuses, sharks and all kinds of fish, or for more action go parasailing or rent a Jet Ski.
Catalina Island can get crowded in the high season, so to explore further afield rent a golf cart, available at a few places near the pier.
If you’d like to go hiking and see some local wildlife, head inland for great views and the chance to spot island foxes, eagles or bison. Drop into the Nature Center at Avalon Canyon or the Santa Catalina Island Interpretive Center to learn more about the island’s wildlife and geography.
Fly high above the forest canopy on the Cataline Zip Line, one of the island’s most exciting attractions, and enjoy sweeping views of the coastline.
Back in Avalon, brush up on your local history at the Catalina Island Museum, check out the city’s video-game arcade, play mini golf, or tackle the rock climbing wall. For a great night out, head to the art deco Catalina Casino. Despite its name, this is not a gambling establishment. Instead, you’ll find an old-time theater and a ballroom that hosts plays, concerts and festivals.
The Catalina Island Ferry leaves from the mainland at Long Beach, San Pedro and Dana Point.
The 6th floor patio doesn’t open until 9pm. I wanted to see the view of the sunrise but couldn’t. The vending machine had only 3 varieties. No juice or non carbonated drinks (I don’t drink soda). Beautiful hotel and nice and close to Main Street and Vons. :)
It is very close to the beach! The staffs are friendly, and provide simple breakfast. The only problem is that several trash cans were outside of our room door, which were very smelly and unpleasant. 😔!
The only issue we had was restaurant was terrible it took over 1hr 1/2 to get dinner.. the was cold after we got it!! Other than that we would go back!! The girls love pool, room was very clean ! Stall very nice.. would recommend this hotel.. The shuttle pick us up.. and drop us off.. from boat and ...
I think anyone who stays here should know it up s steep hill. The hotel should have a shuttle service, and it would be a lot more enjoyable. Anyone staying at the hotel make sure to get a taxi, and your stay will be pleasant.
Loved that this was close to everything (within walking distance). Place was clean and sufficient although a very small space. Staff was great. No elevators. Wifi is horrible.
Great location! The daily breakfast is fantastic as well as the wine and cheese. Very clean, friendly staff, and overall a very nice place.
