Descanso Beach: Best Place to Have a Cocktail

As the weather starts warming up, it means it’s time to hit that water. Descanso Beach is the best place to have a cocktail on Catalina Island with its waterfront location!

What to Expect at Descanso Beach Club

Descanso Beach Club can be found along the waterfront past the iconic Catalina Casino. It’s one of the last private beaches in California open to the public and is home to Catalina’s only beachside restaurant and bar.

You can enjoy signature food and drinks delivered to your private ocean-view table, beach towel, chaise lounge, or cabana in the serene morning hours on the Club’s soft imported sand through to the afternoons of sun-drenched fun on the beach.

Chaise Lounges and Cabanas

Elevate your Descanso Beach Club experience with chaise lounges and private cabanas. On your own slice of Descanso paradise, you can kick back and enjoy the ocean views, cool breeze, and warm sun.

  • Chaise and cabana rentals are available 11:00 am – 3:00 pm on weekends. 


Lunch is available from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm daily.

You can check out the menu online. Some of the specialty cocktails at Descanso Beach Club include:
