Planning a vacation to Catalina Island? The island may be small, but it’s an Instagrammer’s dream come true with its classic island feel. I walked all over the island and found these colorful corners – see below for my Top 10 Most Instagrammable spots on Catalina Island!
1. Catalina Island’s Best Viewpoint
A view only attainable by golf cart! A quick 10-minute golf cart ride up the mountain (scenic itself) gets you to this beautiful, colorful shot of Avalon.
2. Descanso’s Perspective
The walk to Descanso Beach is a little long but the cabanas and drinks are worth it! Take some shots from this eastward POV to capture the ethereal Catalina real estate cascading the mountainsides.
3. B&B Vibes
Morning walks and hidden patios – behind every corner in Catalina are quaint nooks like this.
4. Bluewater Beachfront
Breakfast at the Bluewater – great food, better oceanfront view!
5. Wrigley’s Party Past
Wrigley’s Memorial has a huge courtyard with Italian lights that makes me think he must have thrown grand parties back in his day!
6. Cacti Cutie
A 2-in-1, walk a little slower on your way to the Wrigley Memorial through the Botanical Garden of medley cacti.
The long stone wall and walking bridge reminded me of Ghibli, like it was about to transport me to a magical bathhouse. This is near the St. Lauren Hotel!
8. You Had Me At Yellow
Walking up and down the hills of residential Catalina is a great wind down that gets you away from the busy boardwalk. Island homes are painted in the happiest colors. Find the one that goes best with your outfit 🙂
9. Patterns for Days
Catalina is covered in the most beautiful patterned tile (I dressed to match hehe). This was at the top of Wrigley’s Memorial.
10. That So-Catalina Photo
I think this is the quintessential Catalina photo! The iconic fountain on the Avalon boardworld – lucky for us, we went during an off-season and were able to snap a background free photo!
Thank you so much for reading, please come back next week for a new post!!
Happy Sunday, xo
