Bringing the family together for the holidays can be a cherished family tradition, especially if you do so on Catalina Island. With a range of accommodations, Catalina Island Vacation Rentals can provide lodging for even the largest clan.
Even though Catalina Island’s mild weather means your chances of a white Christmas are slim to none, that same mild Southern California weather means that you can frequently spend Christmas on the beach, if not in your bathing suit, at least in shorts and sandals.
Some of Avalon’s restaurants will be open on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day for Catalina dining. If you prefer a home-cooked meal, stock up on groceries at Vons and use your vacation rental’s kitchen to bring your family’s holiday traditions to the island.
Catalina Island activities during the Christmas season are as diverse as your family’s interests. Water activities are readily available, although a wetsuit is advisable. Hiking, ziplining and parasailing are perfect for the adventure seekers and you’ll find shopping, museums and tours of every variety for those who like their activities with a little less adrenaline.
The only downside to holiday family gathering on Catalina Island is the fact your family will probably insist on making it an annual tradition. Then again, that’s not such a bad thing afterall.
