Channels Islands National Park includes five islands off of the coast of California. The islands, which include Anacapa, Santa Cruz, San Miguel, Santa Barbara, and Santa Rosa, provide a nice getaway from the mainland and a chance to explore the outdoors.
The islands are a great place to view wildlife because of the Channel Islands National Park and Marine Sanctuary. All of the islands have California sea lions and harbor seals. On San Miguel Island you can hike to the famous Point Bennett, where there are thousands of elephant seals on the beach. The islands are also known for hiking, kayaking, boating, and snorkeling. Kayak in the Sea Caves on Santa Cruz Island or snorkel at the Landing Cove on Anacapa Island. For hiking, some popular destinations are Cavern Point on Santa Cruz Island and Inspiration Point on Anacapa Island. For surfing, the Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa, and San Miguel Islands have reputable spots that are only accessible by private boat.
If you’re looking to get off of the island for the day, take a day trip to Santa Barbara, Ventura, or Los Angeles. In Santa Barbara you can go shopping on the famous State Street, spend a few hours relaxing on East Beach, or see the animals at the Santa Barbara Zoo, which has rare snow leopards and a 26-foot rock climbing wall. In Ventura, California, you can go surfing at Emma Wood State Beach, go fishing on the Ventura Pier, or wander through the beautiful Ventura Botanical Gardens. Another fun day trip that you can take is to Los Angeles. Los Angeles is filled with exciting attractions, such as Universal Studios Hollywood, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and shopping on Rodeo Drive.
