For the Minnesotan city of the same name, see Two Harbors (Minnesota).

Two Harbors is a small village with a population of about 250 people that lies right on the isthmus of Santa Catalina island. Two Harbors is a popular boating destination for Angelenos due to its protective natural cove. Yet, it provides isolation in a beautiful natural setting. It can be used as a base for other activities, such as kayaking, diving, and hiking.

Climate[edit]

The weather resembles the rest of Southern California, with a dry and mild climate that can be enjoyed year-round. Highs are generally around 78F and lows around 43F.

Get in[edit]

Two Harbors is accessible by private boats or via the ferry from Long Beach or San Pedro.

Get around[edit]

The three most popular options are: kayak, bicycle and feet. There is also a back country day tour available for rental using a Hummer for transportation on the West End's dirt roads. A Safari Bus (passenger van) provides intra-island transportation to Avalon, Santa Catalina Airport, Little Harbor, and the trailhead at Black Jack Junction.
