Descanso Beach Club

Put a Drink in Your Hand and Your Feet in the Sand

A short stroll along the waterfront past the iconic Casino, Descanso Beach Club is home to Catalina's only beachside restaurant and bar. It's also one of the last private beaches in California open to the public, where you can legally have a drink in your hand and your feet in the sand...at the same time.

Serene morning hours on the Club's soft imported sand give way to afternoons of sun-drenched fun on the beach, where you can enjoy signature food and drinks delivered to your private cabana, chaise lounge, beach towel or ocean-view table.

Cabanas and Chaise Lounges

Our chaise lounges and private cabanas are a great way to elevate your Descanso Beach Club experience. Kick back and enjoy the warm sun, cool breeze and beautiful ocean views on your own slice of Descanso paradise.

Descanso Beach Club Events

Things get rolling on summer afternoons at Descanso Beach Club's Beach Party scene, Catalina's only beach party offering. Every Saturday during the summer, we get the party started with a DJ spinning party tunes. On Sunday, enjoy live musical performances by a variety of local artists.

Note: A narrow strip of rocks separates Descanso Beach Club's soft sand from the waters of Descanso Cove. Those wishing to enter the water may benefit from reef shoes or other protective footwear.
