Catalina Island in Recent Years
If you haven’t been to Catalina Island recently, then you just haven’t been to Catalina. The Island has undergone an extreme makeover in the past few years adding attractions that rival the world’s best destinations. Descanso Beach Club is a well-noted area of interest that has become one of California’s premier beach hangouts. In September of each year the Descanso Beach Club hosts the World Famous, “Catalina Wine Mixer,” providing live entertainment and activities. The Event has been sold out every year since opening with Hollywood Elites and average beach goers in attendance.
Last year saw the launch of Catalina Island Flyboarding! The newest activity to Avalon reopens soon providing visitors the opportunity to put on a snowboard-like mechanism that is powered by JetSki water propulsion. The result: An awesome adventure that allows guests to hover above the water and fly around like something out of the future!
