A Seaside Spa in Catalina

It’s wet out there.

Hard to imagine relaxing on a rooftop spa in a warm Catalina sea breeze right now.

Guess you’ll just have to make a plan for one of the 362 dry days in the year ahead.

Do it at Island Spa Catalina, a serene new oceanside oasis for chilling the hell out, now open in Avalon. (Here’s the slideshow and the menu.)

Yep, Catalina has this great new adobe-roofed complex devoted to soothing your muscles after all those taxing activities you do over there. Like scuba diving. Or having a few drinks on the boat ride over.

Just book your appointment, show up and in no time you’ll be lounging on an open-air relaxation deck up top, dipping into the pool and staring at sailboats.

Soon you’ll be led into a bright, breezy suite for your algae-and-white-tea facial or a Chumash-inspired sage stone purification that starts with a body wrap of corn, oats and clay, and then... well, maybe you’ll just do a massage.

And you’ll probably want to add the hot-sand table to that. It’s where they cover you in warm sand.

The theory is that it’s more relaxing when you’ve paid for it.
