Unexpectedly big beach in an urban setting- apartments on either side- but it s clean, safe and very easy water to paddle board on- and sight-see the people at the same time. Lots of boats to ogle too- and great restaurants nearby.

This is not really a beach by southern California terms. It is a sandy area for swimming, paddle boarding and kayaking within Marina Del Rey. There are no waves, however the tide is continually drifting in and out. Great place to learn to paddle board...More

This beach wasn't really much of a beach. There was sand and water but with all the boat activity and the water in the beach area being closed-in I don't think the water is that clean. I would not swim here.

This is actually inland and you can walk to many restaurants. They have BBQ pits and you can also use the volleyball nets.

Going on a Sunday in mid-summer had me concerned that it would be too crowded or that we wouldn't find any parking. Both were no problem because the beach is very big and there was more than ample parking ($15 as is with any state...More

This place is truly unique. The water is calm and the sand is soft. The playground will also help keep kids busy. Fun place to spend the day.
