Secret beaches near Avalon on Catalina Island?

My gf and myself are taking a first time trip to Catalina on a Monday and I'd like to know if there are any secret/secluded beaches near Avalon. Any beach to just relax where there are no other tourists or anyone else. My email is ash_offspring@hotmail.com

Thanks!

The basic answer, no. Avalon is a small city and has only a short spread of beach. There is a Hotel north of the Casino that has a private beach, but it still has a lot of folks. (Descanso Beach).

You might want to look at some of the boat tours that leave Avalon and take you to other locations on Catalina Island.

Hi,

Thanks a lot for your response. Is it possible to go on a hike, rent a bike/or golf cart to explore and see if there are any private places near the ocean?

thanks

Well, the only way to get out of Avalon is to go into the interior. You'll need to hire transportation and it's not too cheap. The Safari Bus will take you over to Little Harbor but it's a ways (over 15 miles). There is not place to walk to a secret beach; Avalon is very small.
