Catalina Island - just 22 miles away from Los Angeles exudes Mediterranean charm


Catalina Island is a place where the gentle rhythm of the waves makes time slow down. It’s a place where you can paddle through crystal clear waters in the crisp morning air, followed by Mai Tai’s and sun soaked massages on the beach in the afternoon. Moonlit walks are the norm and a sense of timelessness surrounds you. That Catalina feeling of tranquility is better known as Island Time. Island Time allows you the time to do all the things you love to do, at your own pace. When you're on Island Time, you're always having the time of your life. So come to Catalina and shift your life from overtime to Island Time. Slow down, kick back and . . . Relax, You're on Catalina Island Time. Santa Catalina Island is unsurpassed in natural beauty, a true island oasis just off the coast of Southern California. Calm clear waters in a Mediterranean setting makes for the ideal escape.  Relaxing and adventurous, you and your loved ones can finally spend some quality “Island Time” together. One-of-a-kind-surroundings, one-of-a-kind-memories as we stay overnight on the Island at the Pavilion Hotel, located in the perfect spot on the Island in the heart of the action.
