Channel Islands National Park encompasses five remarkable islands and their ocean environment, preserving and protecting a wealth of natural and cultural resources.

The island of Anacapa is home to many birds which you can observe by hiking the 10 miles trails.

Make sure you pack your lunch and take a lot of sunscreen with you.

 

The views are amazing and the nature is all around.

Isolation over thousands of years has created unique animals, plants, and archeological resources found nowhere else on Earth and helped preserve a place where visitors can experience coastal southern California as it once was.

In the evening just stroll back to the beach just outside the resort and enjoy thinking of the day you just had.
