Twin Harbors is a great place to start off a few days of camping on the island. Get in Friday night, camp at the Isthmus, have breakfast at the restaurant, be transported to a remote beach for a more rustic stay, then be picked up and taken back to Twin Harbors for boat back to Mainland.

Have been coming by boat since the early '80's...I would recommend at least a day ferry trip for foreign visitors to Los Angeles. It's a chance to experience something about CA that is quite different from the freeways, the densely populated hip spots, and Disneyland. You will visit with friendly people, those that live and work on the island, and... More

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
