The fish market is a good place to eat lunch on the run.

The fish market at the end of the pier has good fish lunches. It is pretty dirty on the pier. Lots of bird droppings.

Many things to do all around the island. Check the cheapest way to travel other than walking, the bicycles built for two. I had so much fun riding those bikes all over the island. Just make sure you ride with someone who will actually pedal.

Catalina (Avalon Harbor) Let me first say we usually go to Two Harbors on Catalina for our fishing trip and have had no issues other than the limited accommodations. This year we tried Avalon due to the larger variety of accommodations. After crossing from Dana Point in our boat and an afternoon fishing, we came into the harbor and met... More

we were there during the Marilyn Monroe showing. It was full of info and friendly people. We thought the place was gorgeous. Trip over was abit rough but saw a whale . We would go back to stay at 1 of the cute homes there. Enjoyable if you can stay more than a few hours.

Love coming to catalina/Avalon ! It really is a spectacular place to spend a night or w weekend ! If only for the night , take a early more boat and leave the next day in the late afternoon...it feels like a whole weekend ! The shops are great and my opinion no more expensive than the malls on mainland.... More
