Avalon on Catalina Island
Hop on the Catalina Flyer from Newport Beach to take a day trip to Avalon on Catalina Island.
This relaxing, one-hour cruise to the island is a great way to start your day, with light snacks and beverages onboard the ship (or you can bring your own), and a beautiful view of the Orange County shoreline.
Stroll down Pebbly Beach Road to Casino Way, where you’ll find quaint shops, lively bars, and a variety of oceanfront dining options. You’ll also find an array of rental shops for bicycles, wave runners, golf carts, and more.
Other activities on the island include snorkeling, parasailing, kayaking, and Zip Line eco-tours. You can even partake in a walking food tour in Downtown Avalon.
Head farther down Casino Way to enjoy a cocktail on the beach at Descanso Beach Club. At the end of the day, relax in accommodations just steps away from the beach.
