Cute little beach

Just across from my hotel, it was a cute little beach that made you feel away from it all. I ate at a few of restaurants around it. Nice view of all the boats.

Many families come here because of the picnic and BBQ areas. Very load and way, way too many kids. Mother's Beach has had an F rating due to pollution for a very long time. I would never put even a toe in the water.

Nice and clean family beach area. Surrounded by restaurants in small shops and cheesecake factory. Marriott hotel directly in the front of the beach area.

Cute beach in Marina Del Rey. Not much for swimming but it has nice restaurants, stand up yoga paddle board and a farmer's market.

Came here for my husband's Outrigger Canoe race. Parking is pretty expensive $15 on the lot that's next to the beach. There are volleyball courts and the marina is a great place to launch your kayak, SUP, or canoe. The beach is nice and clean and the bathroom are also very clean. Of course the beach is ideal for families... More

Walked by here 3 days in a row as we were exploring the area from staying at a hotel near the marina. Was nicer on weekdays. Weekend was very crowded and noisy as people claimed tables and sand nearby. Felt as if we were walking through loud reunions! Bathrooms are available. Beach is lovely, but had no desire to go...

This is a great beach to just relax and wander about. We watched wedding photos being shot, several beach volleyball games, there is a kids play area. Beach was very clean and the sand was white and fine. Right across the street from the Oakwood, we walked around the beach and visited the marina. Perfect spot to relax outdoors

Polluted with copper paint from boat bottoms, gas and oil, bird poop. Mothers beach is at the end on MDR channels and seldom can't be flushed and freshened.

We were staying at the adjacent hotel, which was very nice, and went to the Marina beach first thing in the morning to enjoy the view. Being small it could get bust maybe but wasn't while we were there.

First found it when we went to happy hour at Jamaica Bay Inn, then again when I went to the farmers market, seemed to be children aving classes on how to balance onsurfboards. It is nice and quiet and safe
