Book a Two Night Stay, and Enjoy a Complimentary Third Night

AVALON, CALIF. (SEPTEMBER 14, 2020) — With its wide open spaces and fresh ocean breezes, Catalina Island is an ideal vacation destination—safely secluded, but just an hour from the southern California coast. But how can visitors make the most of their trip to California’s Island Escape, especially in just a few days?

Catalina Island Company has curated their own three-day “Island Trifecta” itineraries, featuring a selection of some of their most popular outdoor activities that can be enjoyed while socially distanced: First Time Fun, Rugged Explorer, Sightseer & Scenery Buff and All You Need is Love itineraries include three full days designed to create a breathtaking Catalina Island vacation, from where to go and what to do, to the best places to snap a scenic photo or enjoy an afternoon snack on the beach. These travel plans can be found at

To take full advantage of the “Island Trifecta” itineraries, guests can book two nights and receive the Third Night Complimentary on new bookings made at any of Catalina Island Company’s four properties, including the island-chic Pavilion Hotel and the historic Hotel Atwater, celebrating its 100th anniversary. The offer is valid from now through December 30, 2020.

“Travelers continue to seek out nearby destinations where they can vacation in a responsible way, and we’re seeing three-day visits becoming more and more popular in today’s climate,” said Randy Herrel, Sr., president and chief executive officer of Catalina Island Company. “Our Island Trifecta itineraries help guests experience something different every day of their visit. From relaxing to adventurous and everything in-between, these itineraries were built on input from employees and guests, so visitors can rest assured that they are some of the best – and most fun – experiences we have to offer!”
