May is the perfect month for a Catalina day trip. Just 22 miles from the shores of Malibu, sheer paradise awaits (as if southern California’s mainland isn’t paradise enough!). This quaint, charming, Mediterranean-style town has incredible dining, pampering and nightlife. Avalon and Two Harbors are the two hot spots that really come to life at night, perfect for wining, dining and dancing.
Catch a movie at the Avalon Theater, or slip into your dancing shoes for the Descanso Beach Club. The Island Spa will treat you right with the Sea Oxygen De-Age treatment using pure white algae, white wine, copper, and white tea to detox your body and refresh your mind. Their classic facial treatments, anti-aging treatments, and brow perfectors pair perfectly with massages.
A Slice of Paradise
Camping and boating, including “primitive camping,” lets you truly get away from it all. Boat-in camping sites, mooring sites, guided camping trips, and the ability to really go off the grid on your own are all possible on Catalina. Blackjack Campground is Catalina’s highest peak and offers incredible views of the terrain and ocean.
You can go ziplining, golfing on an 18-hole course, take a scenic tour, or board a glass-bottom boat. Where will Catalina take you?
