Avalon Travel guide
Avalon : Michelin's recommendations
Catalina’s only town is a mix of pastel-colored house and bungalows, hotels, restaurants and souvenir shops. Cars are restricted on the island. From the Green Pleasure Pier, glass-bottomed boats depart to view undersea life or view sea lion colonies. Buses to the island’s wilderness interior, Catalina Airport and the Wrigley family’s Arabian horse ranch depart from the town center.
