Catalina Trails, Maps & Information
The most visited tourist destination on Catalina Island is the city of Avalon. Leaving the hustle and bustle of the “mainland”, Avalon is the perfect place to take a break from the demands of daily life. With so many activities to choose from, your visit to Avalon can be adventure-packed or filled with rest and relaxation. Enjoy water sports like kayaking or snorkeling, land activities like hiking and golfing, tours such as the Zip Line Eco-Tour or just relax on the beach or at the spa. With its year-round Mediterranean climate, it’s the ideal place to enjoy ocean air and sunshine.
Located on the west end at the Island’s Isthmus, Two Harbors is a unique and rustic small island village getaway for outdoor and boating enthusiasts. This village has one restaurant, one bar and snack shop, and one General Store – each with a stunning view.
Explore Catalina’s interior where you’ll find plant life that is not found anywhere else…and animal life that’s just as rare. Visitors may spot Catalina fox, quail, buffalo, and even bald eagles while hiking along well-marked trails, biking over mountain roads or a high adventure tour aboard a hummer. Two Harbors allows you to be in a rural setting or keep to your urban likings by staying close to the amenities.
