MARINA DEL REY
MARINA "MOTHER'S" BEACH
ABOUT THE BEACH
Marina Beach, or “Mother’s Beach” as it is referred to by local residents, is a family and kid-friendly, man-made beach in Marina del Rey.
Developed as a part of Marina del Rey in 1957 and officially dedicated in 1965, this beach provides a safe environment for kids because there is no surf in the swimming area.
The area is comprised of almost a half-mile of sandy beach with volleyball courts, picnic areas, barbecues, showers, and restrooms.
This is a great location for family outings, with playground equipment available for young children. Windsurfing and kayaking are popular activities at this beach.
There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. “Mother’s Beach” is also a favorite place to watch the yearly New Year’s Eve and Fourth of July fireworks shows put on by the Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors.
