Avalon Vacation Travel Information

Crescent Beach on Catalina Island in Avalon, California

Crescent Beach is the main beach on Avalon Bay in the town of Avalon on Santa Catalina Island. Next to the Green Pleasure Pier are two small beaches and just north is a third. These beaches, called South, Middle, and Step Beach, are all part of Crescent Beach. The beaches are small and often mostly wet depending on the tide, but there is a sandy terrace behind the beach to find a spot to lay a towel on. In the summer, this is a busy place so spots might be hard to find. Avalon is a picturesque town frequently shown in California tourism brochures. Shops and restaurants are easy walking distance from the beach. Also nearby are rental companies where you can rent boats, kayaks, paddleboards, pedal boats, and snorkeling gear. It’s a fun place to visit and if you have time to stay for a while, the rest of the island is worth exploring too. Hermit Gulch Campground is just 1.5 miles from town if you are into “roughing it.” Lifeguards are on hand during the summer months, but be sure to check water quality reports for Avalon Bay before diving in. It’s easy to plan a trip to Catalina Island. Catalina Express leaves Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Dana Point daily for Avalon.
