Catalina Island

Although it's only 22 miles off the Southern California coast, Catalina Island feels hundreds of miles away from the mainland. Upon boarding the Catalina Express, the hustle and bustle of daily life slips from sight as you sail away to a piece of paradise in the Pacific Ocean. Avalon is the pulse of the island, with an array of attractions for couples to enjoy, from the Romance Promenade at the Casino to exhilarating zip line tours.
