Catalina is one of the most unique places on earth and dear to all who visit or call this paradise “home.” Avalon is a great introduction to the Island, but to truly experience all Catalina has to offer—one must venture beyond the city limits into the interior of the Island, which the Catalina Island Conservancy has worked tirelessly to preserve—untouched by modern times and development. The sandy beaches on the back side are a favorite of locals and a highlight for campers, hikers and those on a day trip into the interior via a tour, charter, or shuttle. There are now more ways than ever to enjoy the peaceful expanse of the Island beyond the Hogsback loop!
Travel through the Island to see our famous buffalo and other indigenous wildlife, stop at the Airport in the Sky or Two Harbors for a quick snack or al fresco lunch. The itinerary options are endless, and we promise you will leave Catalina with treasured memories.
