Spring marks the seasons of new beginnings, and here on Catalina Island is no different. Following the winter months’ rainfall, the island beautifully displays its springtime beauty with rolling green hillsides and marks of colored wildflowers all around. Spring on Catalina Island is unlike any other experience. Here are a few of our favorite ways to enjoy this remarkable season on the island.
Enjoy an Adult Beverage
The city of Avalon on Catalina Island is filled with a wide array of drinking establishments designed for all. Enjoy your favorite cocktail beachside at Descanso Beach Club or in a classic tiki bar at the Luau Larry’s. If you’re looking for something more upscale, Avalon Grille might be the cocktail and wine experience you are looking for.
There are so many different places to experience on the island that you can even participate in a Catalina Happy Hour Tour. Remember that the laws surrounding alcohol are the same on Catalina Island as they are in California. The minimum drinking age is 21 years old, and it is illegal to drive, even a golf cart, while under the influence.
Get Out of Town
While Avalon has so much to offer, it’s worth getting outside of the city to explore the incredible island in its entirety. There are multiple ways to explore the island, including partaking in a volunteer event with the Catalina Island Conservancy, hiking the Trans-Catalina Trail, or booking a guided tour of the island’s interior.
Dip Your Toes
Springtime means the temperatures are rising, and the water surrounding the island becomes that much more inviting. Whether you want to take a leisurely dip or plan a scuba or snorkel adventure, Catalina Island has it all. Some great spots to check out include the Casino Dive Park or Lovers Cove, both in Avalon.
If you prefer other water activities, you can check out paddle boarding or kayaking on the island as well—capture unforgettable views of the island’s exterior, including secluded coves located all over.
Bring the Whole Family
Catalina Island has something to offer everyone in the family, including the grandparents and kids. With easy access to get around via golf carts, all ages can find something to enjoy on the island. Take the kids to the Three Palms Arcade or treat the grandparents to a couple’s massage. Plan an unforgettable family vacation that is loved by all.
