Channel Islands National Park
Channel Islands National Park is composed of five extraordinary islands, each with a unique pelagic setting. By traveling to these one-of-a-kind environments, visitors have the opportunity to experience the California coast as it existed prior to human settlement. Thousands of years of isolation produced unique flora and fauna, and early human interaction with the islands left behind archeological resources unlike any in the world. A truly remote and pristine location, a visit to Channel Islands National Park is truly an escape from modernity.
