Mediterranean-Style Resort in the Southeastern Foothills of Catalina Island
Hiking and biking trails crisscross the mountains in southeastern Catalina Island, winding past rugged terrain speckled with St. Catherine’s lace and prickly-pear cacti. Many of these trails are just a short walk from Catalina Canyon Resort & Spa, a Mediterranean-style property overlooking the town of Avalon.
The private balconies of some guest rooms open to views of the mountains; others look out onto the resort’s heated pool, set in a courtyard shaded by towering palms. At the Spa at Catalina, you can enjoy a soothing treatment such as an organic seaweed body wrap administered in a candlelit room.
Highlights of Catalina Island
Location: 22 miles southwest of Los Angeles
Secluded coves make nice spots for soaking up the sun or snorkeling among starfish, sea urchins, and bright-orange garibaldi. Travel + Leisure called these coves “ready-made for romance,” naming Catalina one of the world’s most romantic islands in 2010.
Desert foliage: Much of the island is accessible only by unpaved hiking and biking trails, but you can see many of its endemic plants in town at the Wrigley Memorial & Botanic Garden.
Garden to Sky Hike: Setting out from Avalon—Catalina's only major town—this all-levels trail leads to spectacular views of the island and ocean.
