The beaches here are less busy and touristy than the venice beach and Santa Monica beach. Also easy to do water activities if you are near the docks. I really like hornblower cruises in marina for brunch

The Marina Beach can be beautiful on a clear day or foggy with light overcast. Sky diving is popular at the beach and classes are offered throughout the week. Dogs aren't aloud. 😔. Beach has nice trail to hike and opened daily till sundown.

Quieter than Venice Beach and very beautiful. It is accessible by a wonderful bike path than can be joined right from the Marina Del Rey Hotel.

I went into the water even though it was cold, I just love the sea! Not too crowded, probably not a busy time of the year.

Wonderful location & amenities. Restaurant was under construction but they provided heaters outside in the evenings and the food was outstanding!

It's a nice beach. But dog owners insist on breaking the law and taking their dogs to the beach. And worst, many of them are NOT on a leash. So be careful if you have small children.

One of my favorite beaches in the world. Long expansive powdery sand. Very quiet. You are usually only one of a few people on the beach at any time. Great place to meditate, do yoga, read, run and play volleyball. Search along the shore and...More

dogs on leash are allowed on the board walk except during peak times. dogs are not allowed on the beaches. signage at the entrance to the beach explains this. there are other dog beaches nearby.
