Play on the Water

If you're seeking a new experience to try with your crew that keeps you safe and socially distanced, then our waterfront playground is the right place to be. Rent a kayak, paddleboard, jet-ski or an electric duffy boat (you'd drive it yourself). Marina "Mother's" Beach is a good spot for beginners learning to stand-up paddle or kayak. Rent from the following outfitters at Mother's Beach: Paddle Method, ProSUP Shop, or YOGAqua. You can also rent from Marina del Rey Boat Rentals at Fisherman's Village. We recommend making reservations for rentals, especially if you're planning to go during the weekend. Click button for more information.

Picnic on the Beach

This peaceful 12-acre lagoon is easy walking distance from most of the Marina’s hotels and waterfront restaurants. The beach has playground equipment, sheltered picnic tables (currently closed due to covid-19), and easy access to restrooms. The cove’s lack of surf makes it ideal for families with young kids – an attribute that inspired its local nickname, Mother’s Beach.
