There’s no better place for romance to celebrate Valentine’s Day than the Island of Romance, Santa Catalina. Ever since the Four Preps’ popular song 26 Miles popularized the concept, Catalina’s reputation as one of Southern California's most romantic destinations has been assured. The reputation for romance is much deserved and thousands of couples escape to Catalina to celebrate this special day every year.
Here are five of our favorite romantic things to do on Catalina Island:
Get a couple’s massage: There are several spas on Catalina Island as well as massage providers who will bring the treatment to you. There’s nothing like relaxing together and feeling the stress melt away to bring you closer to the one you love.
Dinner together: Catalina Island restaurants offer outdoor dining with a range of dishes and experiences, including steaks, seafood, sushi and more. Enjoy a lingering meal with your special someone.
Walk the waterfront: Avalon’s waterfront is ideal for moonlit strolls, but Crescent Avenue is perfect for a hand-holding stroll at any time.
Picnic: Catalina Island offers several great places for a picnic. If you want to impress your love, plan a picnic lunch on the backside of the island at Little Harbor.
Propose, elope, or renew your vows: The Island of Romance is the perfect destination to take your relationship to the next level, whether that’s beginning a lifetime commitment or reconfirming a commitment you made 50 years ago. Hundreds of friends or just the two of you, no matter what you choose Catalina Island is the place to be.
