Gay Catalina Island
Catalina Island has a growing and well-deserved reputation as an adventure destination. For those who crave an escape from the concrete gridlock of Southern California, there is not one single stoplight on the entire island!
The numerous outdoor experiences make for a soul rejuvenating weekend escape. Beautiful botanical gardens, the Trans-Catalina Trail and scenic and remote Campgrounds make this one of the most peaceful and beautiful locales on the West Coast.
There is also an incredible Marine Preserve called the Lover’s Cove, calm and ideal for snorkeling amongst the scintillating orange Garibaldi and spotted opaleyes.
Several extensive wrecks are accessible for walk-in SCUBA diving on Casino Point, and you can tackle the challenging trails on mountain bike or by foot. And last but not least, exploring the island’s perimeter in an ocean kayak is an unparalleled way to get out onto the legendary crystal-clear waters along the Catalina Coast.
The Gay Scene in Catalina Island
Posthumously-outed, Rock Hudson, the Ricky Martin of his era, was famous for sailing over to Catalina Island for weekend getaways. Catalina’s historic tapestry has golden gay threads woven throughout, and the feeling permeates your stay on the island.
