Are you looking to stay in the heart of Metropole Market Place? Then book an overnight stay at Hotel Metropole’s Beach House with a breathtaking ocean view.

Travel Tips

Interested in exploring Avalon on your own rather than taking a guided tour? Rent a golf cart from Catalina Island Golf Cart. Once you get behind the wheel, you can see the town and capture every moment at your own pace. Experiencing the scenic views overlooking the city will have you planning your next trip back.
