Back to school.

The three words bring dread to the under 18 set and relief – if not glee – to their parents.

On Catalina Island, back to school means a decided shift from families to couples, as family vacations give way to passionate escapes. Fall is the perfect time to plan a romantic getaway to Catalina Island – particularly mid-week, when nearly all the visitors to the island are those who don’t need to worry about homework and gradebooks.

Weather on Catalina Island in the fall is nearly always just about perfect, with warm days stretching into an extended twilight ideal for romantic walks along the waterfront. While the idyllic Catalina getaway for couples leaves plenty of time for spontaneity, Island activities abound in the fall. Here are our favorite things to do on Catalina Island in the fall for couples.

Descanso Beach. From renting a cabana to zip lining down the canyon, Descanso offers a wealth of activities. One of our favorites is paddling down the coast on a Frog Rock Kayak Tour.

Food – and drink. The Avalon Tasting and Cultural Walking Tour offers new tastes and new experiences, ideal for couples whether they’ve been together for six weeks or 60 years.

Take a walk. While the aforementioned twilight walk along the Avalon waterfront has brought romance to couples for generations, Catalina also offers a wide range of hikes and walks for every ability. Stop in at the Catalina Conservancy for more details.

Relax. Let the stress melt away by booking a couples massage in Avalon. You’ll both emerge rested, relaxed and rejuvenated.

No matter what you and your beloved decide to do, a fall getaway to the island of romance is a sure-fire way to kindle the spark in your relationship.
