We travelled by wooden boat from Avalon, Catalina Island to Two Harbors as "something to do" away from Avalon (read separate review on the tour company trip). On our next trip we will take the ferry from the mainland (or fly in to the island airport - 1600 feet up) and stay in Two Harbors for the SCUBA diving that... More

Great times at the 13th Annual Two Harbors Wine Festival! The vintners and food are great. It wasn't crowded and the attendees were friendly and happy. There should be a food only ticket option for non drinkers.

Most visitors to Catalina Island go to Avalon - it's a city, with hotels and attractions. If you want to see the quiet side, visit Two Harbors - there's a campground, General Store, Bar, Restaurant, Snack Bar, Beaches...hike, rent SUPs, kayaks, scuba dive kelp forests! It feels like a million miles away from the megalopolis of LA County! You can... More

The campsite is expensive, but well worth the price if you can rally enough people to fill it. Comes with firepit, Weber gas grille, semi private beach, 4 kayaks, two scenic balconies and multiple areas to set up tents. A perfect place to bring a group that's not experienced with camping, as you're not exactly roughing it. Secluded from the... More

On the one hand they have a dog friendly policy letting the dogs on the beach and they have a dog show once a year that is very popular but there are signs all over "no dogs" it's seems the catalina Island Co can not figure out if they are dog friendly? As a boater I'm confused why they offered... More

Great stay until we wanted to get on the boat home. We stood a little out of line and a harbor department employee scolded us. When one of our party questioned her, she told us she was off duty and called the Sheriff on us. We tried to communicate with a superior and they refused to find us anyone to... More

Two Harbors is a great place for a weekend trip. Its mostly undeveloped, but there is are a couple places to eat and a bar with a DJ and dancing that attracts everyone on Friday and Saturday. You can camp, but why not just charter and boat with some friends and sleep aboard. You can fill you days with swimming,... More

Every year I come to Two Harbors with a group of my closest friends and it is hands down my favorite memory. You feel as though you're in the Mediterranean with the perfect amount of laid back and non-business without leaving behind the comfort of civilization. Much better than the crowded and over rated Avalon. Could easily stay my entire... More
