Cute public beach

I kayak over here every now and then. Its a beach in the marina so its not open ocean ahead of you. There are BBQ grills and pavillions that the public takes full advatage of.

I'll go right off the bat and say that this probably isn't a place if you're visiting out of town. There are tons of beaches short distance way that are much more famous such as Venice (known for weird people and street shows), Santa Monica (3rd street promenade and pier with rides), Manhattan (Beach volley ball), Hermosa, and Redondo to...

Dependent on your beach preferences, Mother's beach is a very beautiful peaceful scene. We visited early on in the morning and it was empty very pretty to see, surrounded by huge palm trees. Not really any activities and I imagine during a hot day it would be heaving but definitely worth a visit or a swing by on an early... More

Beautiful to wine and dine overlooking the beach. It's quiet and serene and away from the crazies on the pacific side but don't go in the water, it has the poorest water rating in the area. Probably due to all the boats in such a small area.

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...
