Crescent Beach is a colorful, lively family-oriented beach with  young children, moms and dads, grandparents, retired folks, students, business groups and foreign travelers.


All flocking to Catalina Island to enjoy the sand, sun and fun, this colorful stretch is a great place to soak it all in.


There is a good reason that Crescent Beach is so popular. Unlike its neighbors, Descanso Beach, which charges a fee, and Pebbly Beach, where there's hardly a beach at all, this beach has it all. Additional beaches on Catalina Island include the Windward Beaches that are mostly primitive and not close by. Some beaches can only be accessed by kayak or boat, in fact.


So sit a spell at the lovely Crescent Beach. Take in the fun and have a good time on beautiful Avalon..


Catalina Island is a friendly place that honors tourism most.  From the boats that arrive daily to the cruise ships that provide tender to the island, Catalina residents provide the look and feel of a Fantasy Island. 


When you arrive, you depart your boat or ship and notice signs that welcome you.  There are golf carts to rent, tours to take and enjoyment that never ends. Restaurants, shopping, museums, a golf course, horse stables, museum tours, kayaks, glass bottom boat tours and so much more await you on Catalina Island.


Where to stay: The largest and only full service hotel is the Best Western Catalina Canyon Hotel, located at 888 Country Club Drive, Avalon, CA 90704.
