A World-Class Beachside Venue

Descanso Beach is one of the most stunning outdoor meeting and event venues in the world. Aside from the beach's abundant space and premier location, it offers many amenities that can turn this popular spot for sunbathing into a relaxed site for corporate retreats and meetings. As a private beach club it allows its guests to enjoy a cocktail right on the sand and throughout the facility.

Whether you envision a private meeting beside the ocean or group dining on the beach under the stars, Descanso Beach Club can cater to your every need. The terraced lawn and Avalon's only seaside bar and restaurant can accommodate any size party. The Descanso Beach club also acts as the Adventure Hub of Catalina Island with the Zip Line Eco Tour, Sea Trek Undersea Adventure and countless water activities available.
