Paradise Cove Camping

Paradise Cove is the next cove east from Ripper’s Cove as you travel towards Avalon from Two Harbors. It is very private – allowing for just one group or campers. If it is privacy you are after – here is a great spot!

The beach is sheltered under a protective rocky bluff, out of the wind on three sides. The beach is sand mixed with cobblestones and tumbled-smooth lava rocks of various colors. Closer to the waters edge it is mostly sand.

Snorkeling and diving are possible here, as well as hiking if you bring adequate footwear. As with all the remote boat in campsites on Catalina Island – watch for rattlesnakes.

***I apologize for the ultra-crap picture! It’s the only one I could get my hands on. You can kind of see a tent and some activity on the beach.. lol! Send me a nice pic if you take one while you’re there! -Ed.
