Island of Romance
Catalina is the perfect romantic getaway. Known as the “Island of Romance”, after the popular “26 Miles across the Sea” song, it’s easy to sail away to the beautiful shores of Catalina Island.
The island’s main town of Avalon offers a unique romantic setting with a distinctive Mediterranean charm. Catalina is the only island destination in California that offers a large selection of accommodations that includes everything from beachfront hotels to cozy bed and breakfasts, well-appointed condos, charming cottages, and even a four-star country inn.
Many of the hotels have romantic amenities such as fireplaces, whirlpool jacuzzi tubs, private balconies and ocean views to make your stay a passionate paradise. Relax in sumptuous surroundings overlook the boats bobbing in the harbor. Stroll along the moonlit shore and enjoy a quiet intimate dinner for two. Check out our current Island of Romance Packages & Offers.
If you are planning a wedding on the island, we have many wedding planners available to help you make the day a very special one.
