Crescent Beach on Catalina Island in Avalon, California

Crescent Beach is the main beach in the town of Avalon on Santa Catalina Island. It is next to Green Pleasure Pier, a picturesque wooden pier in the protected boat harbor of Avalon Bay.

Crescent Beach is made up of three small beaches. These beaches, South Beach (south of the pier), Middle Beach (north of the pier), and Step Beach (farther north), are all on the calm waters of the Avalon waterfront. South and Middle Beaches have reliable sand, but might be all wet at high tide. Step Beach is a rocky shoreline that is wet most of the time. Each of these beaches has a sand covered terrace behind it with tall palm trees and places to sit and enjoy the view.

In the summer months theses beaches will be quite busy and the waterfront restaurants and shops will be too. Lifeguards are on hand during the summer months, but be sure to check water quality reports for Avalon Bay before diving into the water

Nearby there are rental companies where you can rent boats, kayaks, paddleboards, pedal boats, and snorkeling gear. Lovers Cove is nearby for better snorkeling.

Avalon is a delightful place to visit and if you have time to stay for a while, the rest of the island is worth exploring too. There are countless hotels in Avalon and with so much to see and do, it is worth staying there for several days or a week. Hermit Gulch Campground is 1.5 miles from town if you are into “roughing it.” Hiking trails venture into the mountains from there.

It’s easy to plan a trip to Catalina Island. Catalina Express leaves Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Dana Point daily for Avalon.
