Really Good for little kids

Although I have some misgivings swimming near boats, the water appears clean, is calm and is great for little kids. I have been taken my kids there since they were infants.

Mothers Beach is a great place to rent paddle Boards and Kayaks. However, being in the heart of the marina means the water quality can get a little nasty. You are in the middle of a marina with lots of boats that use gas/oil and have onboard bathrooms. It is illegal to dump grey water in the harbor but... It... More

So it may look inviting but for the umpteenth year in a row, heal the bar and the govt have declared this the worst water in Southern California. There should be signs post warning locals and visitors alike to stay out of the water

Nice hidden beach in the middle of a busy city. No one else was even on the beach, made for a perfect day to relax out in the sun.

Don't think for one second that the water is clean, thick black oil spill will ruin your bikini and irritate your skin. Stay away, just look at the beach from the Cheescake Factorys outdoor patio.

We spent the week at the Marriott overlooking Mother's Beach. It was great during weekdays- water was cold (!!) but shallow and calm. During the weekend, however, it was transformed to party central. We may be out of towner's but sitting on an 'open hot box'(...) surrounded by boomboxes and footballs thrown in the air was not inviting... Further, there... More

We stayed at the Jamaica Bay in right on Mother's Beach for our honeymoon. What a beautiful beach, and perfect for the family due to the lack of big waves. The sand is pure white and very soft so games can be played. There are volleyball nets, toilet and beach shower facilities as well as hard standing barbeques with large... More

This is a great place to park up (small fee) to put your paddle boards in the water, and adventure out around the marina. Usually end up with a good meal at the Cheesecake Factory which overlooks this area.

This beach was just outside our hotel's back door. (Jamaica Bay Inn). We visited in April and it was very quite and underused but it would probably be busy in the summer time. Very safe for sailboarding and lessons are readily available.

We stayed at a hotel near by and this was a nice quiet beach to relax! Nice sand and a good place to swim, there is also a picnic area. On Thursday there was a small market in the parking lot with food and flower vendors. We rented paddle boards on day which was a ton of fun! There was... More
