Stroll along the waterfront past the iconic Casino to Descanso Beach Club. It's home to Catalina's only beachside restaurant and bar and one of the last private beaches in California open to the public. It's also one of the few places where you can legally have a drink in your hand and your feet in the sand...at the same time.
Serene morning hours on the Club's soft imported sand give way to afternoons of sun-drenched fun on the beach, where you can enjoy signature food and drinks delivered to your private cabana, chaise lounge, beach towel or ocean-view table.
Our chaise lounges and private cabanas are a great way to elevate your Descanso Beach Club experience. Kick back and enjoy the warm sun, cool breeze and beautiful ocean views on your own slice of Descanso paradise.
Descanso Beach Club is open daily from 11:00 am - 5:00 pm. View our lunch menu online. Dinner service begins in July, and dinner will be served from 5:00 - 8:00 pm, Friday - Sunday. View our dinner menu online.

Note: A narrow strip of rocks separates Descanso Beach Club's soft sand from the waters of Descanso Cove. Those wishing to enter the water may benefit from reef shoes or other protective footwear.
