The Perfect Place to Meet

Catalina Island is the ideal place to meet. Just 20 miles from Los Angeles, with easy access via high speed ferry or helicopter from Long Beach, San Pedro, Newport Beach and Dana Point, CA, Catalina Island attracts some of the business elite. A great way to get away from it all and focus on the tasks at hand, without all of the hassle. Catalina is the perfect place for small and large meetings, social groups, corporate incentive groups, school groups and military reunions.

In Avalon we offer three main venues, the icon Catalina Casino, the Catalina Country Club, and the Descanso Beach Club. We also have numerous off-site locations at which we can provide catering and meeting set up. The breezy and elegant oceanfront Pavilion Hotel and nearby Hotel Atwater will warmly welcome your meeting attendees or guests. We offer special group rates at both hotels.

Two Harbors is a great destination for smaller meetings or corporate retreats. Venues include the 12 room Banning House Lodge or 3 bedroom guest cottages.

If you’re looking for a catered meeting or event, we provide world-class catering in Avalon at all of our venues and at a variety of off-site locations. We also offer catering services in Two Harbors at The Banning House Lodge, at our guest cottages and within our scenic beachfront picnic areas.
