Two of the Islands most exotic locals, Little Harbor and its twin, Shark Harbor Shark and Little Harbors are Catalina Island favorites; a must-see for first-timers. Due to the layout of the surrounding coast, Little Harbor is nearly always calm, while Shark is nearly always churning. In the right weather, you might even spot a few surfers taking advantage of the waves. You can also arrange for kayak rentals from town, before you begin your hike, so that you'll have use of the boats stored on shore, just waiting for you when you arrive. Contact Catalina Backcountry for more information. You can hike here on the Trans Catalina Trail or you can schedule a ride on the Safari Bus from either Avalon or Two Harbors.
