Beach-side Romance at Descanso Beach

Down a palm tree-lined path just beyond the scenic Catalina Casino lies the Descanso Beach Club, Avalon’s only privately owned beachfront property available for public use. A beautifully terraced oceanfront lawn, leads directly to the beach, with crystal clear waters stretching as far as the eye can see. The lawn seats up to 250 seated guests while the entire venue can accommodate groups as large as 1,200. This is the premier location for your picture-perfect beachside wedding. Based on availability, guests can choose to have a ceremony on the beach followed by a reception on the lawn. This is an unforgettable and unique beachfront location on beautiful Catalina Island.

The Descanso Beach Club can accommodate up to 1,200 guests. To schedule an event, please fill out our online Wedding RFP or contact our wedding sales team at (877) 778-9399.
