It is calmer than the other popular northern beaches like Santa Monica beach and Venice Beach. The beach is located at the South of Venice Canals and the surrounding neighborhood is tranquil and seems to be more luxurious.

The Marina Beach has clean sand and looks inviting. Never go in the water. Do not let your children play in the water, simply stay out of it. It is filled with gasoline and oil from the boats nearby, it really has no way to clean itself, and I fear you will get sick.

If you wish to go there for a picnic with family that is perfectly fine. They do have picnic tables and parking is available for a fee. It can get crowded on the weekends.

It is also nice if you just want to take a walk along the sand, but don't get near the water.

You will also find a large homeless population lingering around there. I would pity them, but I really don't feel like buying meth today or any heroin.

This used to be a nice beach. I would have ordered.

Beach was good - just outside our hotel so it was handy. Busy on a Sat but lots of room. A little dirty by the end of the day but we noticed it was being cleaned Sun morning so parks staff is trying to stay on top of it. Nice little swimming area that is shallow for kids.

No one tells you that Mother's Beach is rated F as far as pollution. Look at the oil from the boats. I have been fighting for a sign to warn visitors not to swim there.

Great beach to visit. I highly recommend not going around the holidays, but rather when it's emptier.

Marina Beach,at Marina Del Rey,California has a great "Beach Eats To Go Nights" featuring a number of high end food trucks is always a hit with locals and visitors alike!
One of our favorites is the "Stopbye Cafe" food truck featuring an Indonesian Fusion" style menu that is authentic,fresh and delicious! They have meat,chicken,vegeterian and fish dishes prepared Indonesian style.
Fast friendly service offered by owners,Tom and Justin,and courteous service-quick too!
In a word-delicious!
The whole "Beach Eats To Go"nights are totally social distanced and all cdc safety precautions are exercised for safe eating.
The Stopbye Cafe truck travels to different places all over So Cal so check out their posts to see where and when!Its great to grab some stopbye cafe food and sit near the marina to enjoy it!

We walked from The Ritz to this beach early one morning and it was lovely. We met another dog and had a play.

Marina del Rey is a beautiful beach. I have been there three times. Marina del Rey has many things that you can enjoy. The beach is a clean place and you can enjoy walking around. I remember many things about this beach. For example, I was walking around the place and felt very relaxed. I looked at many people playing some sports other people riding bicycles. I recommend this nice place because it is very relaxing and you can walk alone or with your spouse, family and friends. The environment is safe and you can breathe fresh air.

Loved it here, the beach is absolutely massive and kept very clean. Dogs are allowed and I always saw the owners pick up after them. Be prepared for a long walk to get to the sea as it's so big.

This is my favorite beach although somewhat biased as I used to live on the peninsula. The beach is to the left as you get to the Washington Ave pier. Most people go right towards Venice. It is much quieter although not isolated. There are a couple of volleyball courts. Parking is limited so it’s less crowded swells are smaller due to the marina channel.
