Santa Catalina island, often called Catalina Island, or just Catalina, is a rocky island off the coast of California. The 75 square-mile island is located about 26 miles southwest of San Pedro.
The only island resort destination in California, Catalina offers endless options for luxury travelers to enjoy.
Getting to Catalina Island is half the fun! journeyPod's pick for transportation to Catalina Island is Catalina Express. The one hour boat ride from Long Beach, San Pedro, or Dana Point is relaxing and breezy.
journeyPod's pick for a place to lay your head is The Inn on Mt. Ada. It is perched high atop a hill overlooking Avalon, Catalina's only city. The Inn has six guest rooms, each with a magnificent view of the harbour or ocean.
For the past 15 years in a row, the Inn has been awarded the Mobil Travel Guide 4-Star rating, a rating awarded to only the top 2% of lodging properties in the USA.
