Have you ever been on vacation in a place that has lovely beaches and nice restaurants? Of course you have. And if you are a nature lover, you probably know about the beauty of Catalina Island. But have you ever considered staying in one of the Catalina Island hotels during your vacation? The facilities and amenities at these hotels will make any vacation more enjoyable.
When I think about the beauty of this place, I immediately have to mention its beaches. There are over 100 beaches in total on Catalina Island, and most of them are in fantastic shape. I recommend spending a day (or more) at each of the beaches to fully explore them. You can float in the ocean on a catalina, or try a fun and exciting surfboard ride. If you like water sports, you can rent a boat and take yourself out for a good swim.
But before you head out to the beaches, there is something else you can do while you are on vacation at Catalina. Bring your ATV or quad bike out into the island’s center. You can pedal right along the shoreline and enjoy the peaceful sounds of the surf. There are also a couple of hiking trails you can follow as well. If you stay at a hotel near some of the attractions on the island, you can use these trails to get some much needed exercise.
While you are here, you might want to check out one of the interesting museums in town. You can check out such things as The Battle of Algiers and The Fall of the Catalina Island Empire. You can learn a lot about these important events from the historians who tell these stories. The exhibits in this museum are full of information about the period of Spanish rule over the island. In fact, you can actually stay in an authentic houseboat right by the exhibits and have a great view of everything that is going on.
And if you are looking for a little bit of culture, you may enjoy learning about it through the exhibits in the Museum of Sea. This particular museum has some very informative displays. One of them actually shows you a captured ship that was taken out of the Mediterranean Sea by pirates. You will see how this vessel was used for carrying cargo and what was on board. As you learn about this vessel, you can also learn about the Spanish Armada, the famous landing of the French on the island and the eventual capture of Napoleon.
