Terranea (terra-NAY-a) is a land unto itself. When you step onto our 102-acre private peninsula paradise, it’s like stepping into a whole new world – minutes from the bustle of Los Angeles. On three sides, you’re surrounded by the tranquil waves of the Pacific and across the channel is Catalina Island. The coastal setting of Terranea embraces its Mediterranean heritage and incorporates it into its architecture. From the resort lobby and outdoor gardens to private terraces and inviting courtyards with outdoor fireplaces, our carefully tended southern California family resort continues to evolve naturally over time.
