California or Italy? You'll be asking yourself as you stare out to this stunning bay resembling Italy's Amalfi Coast.

How to get there

N33° 20' 35.3652"W118° 19' 17.49"
This location is taken near the Buena Vista Point Scenic Overlook on Catalina Island.
The most common way to get to Catalina Island is by ferry. There is a port in Long Beach that departs at 6:00AM and returns from Avalon at 7:30PM. Once on the island, the easiest way to get around is by golf cart but they are only available for 2 hour rentals from 9:00AM to 5:00PM. Consider this when planning your trip.
When you get to the overlook, you will notice wooden stairs leading down to an abandoned foundation. If you continue to walk past the fountain towards the cove you will eventually see the tree at the edge of the cliff, which is where I took this photograph.
