While Catalina has been nicknamed the “Isle of Romance,” many of our visitors make their yearly trip to the Island a family tradition. With Catalina’s proximity to the “mainland” and safe, family friendly atmosphere, it is the perfect place to hang out at the beach and build that sandcastle with your family!
Catalina, and Avalon specifically, is charming and tranquil—where you are able to unplug and unwind. But don’t worry, there are plenty of activities to fill an itinerary whether you come for a week or just a quick weekend getaway! Personal favorites of ours are hanging out at the beaches on “Front Street,” kayaking down the coast towards Frog Rock, going zip lining or rock climbing, seeing a movie in the historic Casino Theatre and having a fun family dinner/barbecue on the deck of one of our vacation rental properties.
We love hearing from you, our guests, about what you enjoying doing when you’re on the Island, so tell us, what are your favorite things to do when you’re vacationing on Catalina with your family?
