Most people don’t realize that a taste of the Mediterranean lies just 22 miles off the Los Angeles coast. Meet Catalina Island, the seaside oasis that is just far away enough from the 405 to make you forget about traffic and everything else that is typical of Los Angeles. On Catalina Island, you’ll find a portfolio of resort-style offerings, including hotels, dining, a beach club, spa, and a variety of exciting land & sea tours and activities.

On summertime weekends, be sure to make your way to the Descanso Beach Club. Think: Las Vegas pool party on the beach. With a live DJ, beautiful weather, and the best Buffalo Milk you’ll ever have, the club is not one to miss. Don’t forget your sunscreen!

You’ll want to stay at the Hotel Atwater, which was just completely renovated in 2019. With an island-chic aesthetic, the hotel lobby alone will pose the perfect backdrop for your Catalina Instagram content. Make sure to take your pictures early in the day, though – the lobby fills up at 4:30 PM for the complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvre reception.

If you’re feeling adventurous, take to Catalina’s top-rated Zip Line Eco Tour, where you can soar to new heights via five separate lines at speeds up to 35 miles per hour. Or, if heights aren’t your thing, step on to the Undersea Expedition to come face-to-face with Catalina’s abundant marine life aboard a semi-submersible submarine. You’ll see an incredible array of undersea creatures, including bright orange Garibaldi, spotted calico bass, urchins, rock fish, and bat rays, just to name a few.

Catalina Island Company’s other resort-style offerings include:

  • Island-chic Pavilion Hotel, only 14 steps from the sand
  • Elegant Mt Ada, Catalina’s only Forbes 4-star accommodations
  • Relaxing Island Spa Catalina, Avalon’s only experiential spa
  • Avalon Grille, elevated-casual dining with Avalon Bay views
  • Descanso Beach Club, home of Catalina’s only beachside restaurant and bar
  • Harbor Sands, a South Pacific-style oasis by the sea in Two Harbors
  • Bison Expedition, where guests spot bison in the island’s rugged interior
  • Two unique educational tours of historic Catalina Casino
  • Many more exciting land and sea tours & activities
