Catalina Island is located just 22 miles southwest of Los Angeles, CA. The island is about 22 miles in length and 8 miles wide at the largest point.
The relative position of the island to the Pacific ocean results in a natural surf break for the eastern, calmer side of the island making it ideal for water sports of all kinds. The eastern side is where you will find the two natural harbors, Avalon Bay to the south and Two Harbors to the north. The tallest point on Catalina is about 2100 feet.
Due to the relatively small size of the island, most people travel by ferry, helicopter, private boat or small plane.
