About Marina Beach (Mother’s Beach) in Marina Del Rey, California

Marina Beach in Marina Del Rey is usually referred to as Mother’s Beach by locals because it has a roped off swimming and wading area on the calm waters of the Marina Del Rey Harbor. It’s a popular spot for families with smaller kids since lifeguards watch over the beach and waves can’t sneak in here. However, this is a marina after all so ask the lifeguards about water quality and don’t swim after a heavy rain as storm runoff can pollute the water.

Consider kayaking or SUPing when water conditions are too hazardous for swimming. Rentals are often available right at the beach.

Families will also enjoy the the access to Marina Beach at Panay Way. Visitors will find a playground built on the sand complete with slides, swings, and many interesting things to climb on all under palm trees and with views of yachts and sailboats. There are several open and covered picnic areas (abundant at Marina Beach) at Panay Way.

The LA Rowing Club occupies the northern part of Mothers Beach where many rowing shells are visible on the shore. Restaurants and food trucks are all around Marina Beach and parking is abundant with large public parking lots along Via Marina at Admiralty Way and Panay Way.
