While bachelorette parties are synonymous with happy mayhem, not all pre-marriage celebrations have to end in a multiday hangover. The beautiful, easily accessible Catalina Island off the coast of Newport Beach, California, is more low-key than Vegas and Nashville, but a great location for bachelorette parties nonetheless. Here are some ideas for a bachelorette party on Catalina Island.

 

Lunch with a View

The hilltop Mt. Ada bed-and-breakfast is the former mansion of William Wrigley, Jr., who once owned the entire island. The inn offers a three-course lunch, open to the public, on a spectacular outdoor patio overlooking the town and coastline 400 feet below.

 

Boat Cruise

California is known for constant sunshine for good reason — take advantage of it! A number of boat cruises leave daily from town, from glass-bottom tours to sunset cruises. Pick which adventure sounds best to you and enjoy the ride.

 

Beach Party

Let loose at Descanso Beach Club, the island’s only beach party offering. Spend an afternoon in a private cabana with your bridesmaids, dancing to a live DJ and drinking margaritas. We won’t judge if things get a little wild.

 

Spa Day

After an afternoon at Descanso Beach Club, a little R&R may be in order. Island Spa Catalina is the island’s only experiential spa, and offers nine treatment rooms, luxurious lounges and a variety of rejuvenating treatments using island botanicals.

 

Zip Lining

If you want to add a little thrill to your bachelorette party, try the Zip Line Eco Tour. You will zip down five separate lines high in the island hills above the canyon floor, getting up to 30 mph. Not only will this add some adventure to your itinerary, but it’s a great bonding activity for your bridesmaids.

While it might not be in your budget to hire a cleaning service every week or two, it can definitely be a worthwhile expense. Hiring a cleaning crew doesn’t have to be as unattainable as it may seem — once you shop around and find a reasonable price, it’s a great way to multitask and prep for specific occasions.
