Catalina Pride is organized by the Love Catalina Island Tourism Authority. It’s a 230-member nonprofit group that supports the island’s business community.
Catalina Island is located approximately 29 miles southwest of Long Beach. It was developed into a tourist destination by chewing gum magnate William Wrigley Jr. in the 1920s. In the 1930s and 40s, the island was a popular destination for Hollywood stars.
Before COVID-19, more than 1 million people traveled to Catalina Island every year.
Its total population is less than 4,100 people, 90% of whom live in the island’s only incorporated city, Avalon.
The island is known for its wildlife, dive sites, and Mount Orizaba, its highest peak.
Avalon’s circular, art deco Catalina Casino is a cultural center with a movie theater, ballroom, and museum.
Catalina Island has 25 lodging properties and 300 vacation rentals, including bed and breakfast inns, seaside condominiums, bungalows, and hotels.
The island offers 33 restaurants, seaside bars, and an abundance of on-and off-water activities and amenities. It’s home to eight marine sanctuaries and the Catalina Island Conservancy with 48,000 acres of protected wilderness.
