What Is Catalina Island, And Why It Is A Perfect Getaway?
Catalina Island located southwest of Los Angeles, California. It is one of the most beautiful and adventurous places that I have ever been to. It is not only because of Catalina's glamorous views, but also because of its unique weather and the things to do there. It has become one of the greatest attractions for all kinds of adventurous people that enjoy beautiful scenics and a great verity of entertainment.
What is the weather like in Catalina Island?
The weather in Catalina Island during winter is slightly cold, and it is a quiet getaway to enjoy the place at a reasonable price. You only need a jacket to venture into the Avalon most expeditious activities, such as zip-lining, paddle boarding, and parasailing. It is also possible to snorkel and scuba dive in winter with a wet suit.
Of course, you can enjoy all these activities during the summer weather in Catalina Island if you are able to pay more money and enjoy the tourist crowd. All travelers have a different preference of season and time, so you can choose what suits you.
Things To Do There?
As already mentioned, the view of Catalina is breathtaking. There is nothing better than enjoying a hot beverage from a local coffee and roam around the Island with either a rented bicycle or a golf cart.
Other things to do in Catalina Island for a tour are either renting a hummer or a Jeb. Those are better options because it would be easier to drive up-hillside while contemplating the pleasant ocean horizon from one direction and the divine nature from the other. Not to mention the instance when you paddleboard through the Catalina's canyon and the sun's light shine upon your little pupils and behold with delight.
Parasailing was the foremost of the visit since it was an incentive experience. It felt scary before gliding into the sky, but as I went up and glimpsed at the calming sea it felt like nothing better. As the paragliding wings raised up, everything gradually felt smaller and my eyes captured Catalina's island beauty.

Since it is an island, you could only get to Catalina Island from the sea or air. The best place to start with is Mainland Ports where you buy a ticket for a passenger ferry or ride a helicopter.
Either of the choices feel like an adventure depending on your own preference and convenience. The trip takes only an hour in a passenger ferry and about 15 mins by a helicopter.
