About Two Harbors
Get away from Avalon and the busier side of Catalina Island with a visit to humble and quiet Two Harbors. There aren't any big hotels or resorts on this side of the island and that's a good thing. The main option is the Banning House Lodge Bed and Breakfast, a comfy and luxurious old Craftsman home on a hill overlooking the town of Two Harbors. Other options include a couple houses, Casa Santa Cruz and Casa Santa Rosa, that can be rented from the Santa Catalina Island Company. Hiking, biking, sea kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding are all popular on this end of the island. There are two coves, Cat Harbor and Isthmus Cove, on either side of town with some of the best Catalina beaches and a campground too. There is a ferry route directly to Two Harbors from the San Pedro Dock of Catalina Express that runs daily.
