Descanso Beach Club is located along the shore, past the famed Catalina Casino. It houses Catalina’s lone seaside restaurant and bar, as well as one of California’s remaining private beaches open to the public. It’s also one of the few places where you may legally have a drink in your hand while also having your feet in the sand.

Mornings on the Club’s soft imported sand give way to afternoons on the beach, where you can order signature food and drinks to your own cabana, chaise lounge, beach towel, or ocean-view table.


The chaise couches and private cabanas at Descanso Beach Club are a terrific way to enhance your visit. On your own piece of Descanso paradise, relax and enjoy the warm sun, gentle wind, and breathtaking ocean views.

From 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., you can rent a cabana or a chaise. Sunday through Thursday, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Our lunch menu is available online.


Every Saturday during the summer, live DJs perform at Descanso Beach Club. Take a look at our schedule.

Descanso Beach Club’s smooth sand is separated from the waves of Descanso Cove by a short strip of rocks. Reef shoes or other protective footwear may be beneficial to those who intend to enter the ocean.
