Two Harbors is a small village with a population of 150 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.
