    Whichever you do be sure to wear sunscreen! Esp if your dress is strapless, you don’t want tan lines!

    We went wine tasting in Temecula for my bffs bachelorette and had a great time! Waterfront dinner sounds nice too, though we got pretty tanked, so our dinner was way casual.

    I personally think Catalina Island would be more adventurous fun, but the winery tour would certainly be more relaxing. Since your bachelorette day will be so close to your actual wedding day, I’d hate to get injured  on your day of fun  right before your big day.

    Catalina island is awesome.  It was my favorite part of LA.

    They both sound amazing, but I would prefer Malibu over Catalina. Malibu Wines is beautiful, there’s plenty of shade (pp brought up a great point about tan lines), and that place is always so relaxing!!! Dinner at Dukes or Paradise Cove…. Sounds like a great day.

    If you go to Catalina, you’ll spend half of the day traveling (driving down to long beach, waiting for the ferry, taking the ferry…) then you’ll spend all day worrying about when the ferry leaves, and again, another hour ride on the boat, another hour drive from Long Beach….

    mariedaniels:  I’m from SoCal so I am familiar with both of these places. Catalina Island is one of my favorite places, but like another poster said going to a winery would be much more relaxing. I would not want to be rushing to catch the ferry early in the morning, spending the time on the boat, and then having to be back in time to catch the ferry home. Plus, the boat ride itself is fairly expensive if I recall, so your girls would probably appreciate not having to purchase round trip tickets in addition to paying for activities on the island. If I were a guest I’d rather pay for the limo and have plenty of time to wander around the Malibu winerys.
