Our younger family members had so much fun paddle boarding. What a pretty spot too. Also the kids had fun playing by the beach right by our hotel- the Jamaica Bay Inn.

Had sunset cocktails at the outdoor beachside restaurant as paddle boarders tried their luck in the tranquil waters.

If you go with your children, don't let them go in the water. The water is one of the most polluted in the country. There is a nice playground though.

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.

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.

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
