The beauty of this harbor is that it isn't overrun by tourists and day trippers. It appeals mostly to sail and motor boats and also a few campers (good camp sites.) There is one restaurant which calls itself the "Best Restaurant in Town." There is one small grocery. You can't bar hop because there is only one bar. I like... More

Two Harbors is still a low key & beautiful spot on Catalina but over the last 1 1/2 years the Catalina Island Company is doing everything it can to ripe it's guests, boy scouts & employees off. We've been visiting the island for over 23 years but "greed" has infested the operators. We understand supplies must be shipped in but... More

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?
