I Want To Go To Catalina Island

My husband and I have been trying to plan a nice vacation for ourselves and we’ve been looking at Catalina Island. It just seems like such a beautiful place to go.

You can do a search online for Hotels Catalina to get a list of places where you can stay. You can choose from hotels, bed & breakfast inns, and campgrounds. Obviously since this will be a relaxing vacation for us, we will be choosing a hotel.

They have so many different fun and amazing activities to choose from like renting bikes, golf carts or even segways, to motor tours to walking tours to relaxing with a massage.

There are glass bottom boats that tour the reefs and shipwrecks in the area. You can go scuba diving and snorkeling in the clear water. The two most popular places to dive are Lover’s Cove which is to the east of town and Descanso Beach which is to the west of the Casino. The area is well known for the schools of flying fish and the bright orange Garibaldi which live their waters. If you are interested in surfing, Shark Harbor Beach and Ben Weston Beach are two beaches that offer good waves.

If you want to stay dry, you can take any of the bus tours that are given of the interior. You can also visit the Catalina Island Museum which is located in the historic Catalina Casino building. The museum is the keeper of Catalina Island’s cultural heritage with over 100,000 items which include over 7,000 years of Native American history, over 10,000 photographs and images, a large collection of Catalina-made pottery and tile, ship models, and much more.

They also have a number of tours you can take like the ghost tours, casino tours, astronomy tours, food tasting tours, walking tours, Hummer/Jeep tours, taxi/charter tours, Unimog tours, and the Zip Line Eco Tour. Helicopter tours and parasailing are also options.

There just seems like there is so much to choose from for activities. Definitely sounds like a great place to go to relax and have some great fun. Have you ever been? Let me know what some of your favorite activities are.
