Safe beach with playground, picnic tables and places for grilling. My daughter loves it. The only disadvantage is the absence of lights, so after the sunset it gets too dark to play.

A great beach for small kids. Nice playground and close to The Cheesecake Factory and the Jamaica Bay Inn. Easy parking. Boat rentals and others recreational items easily accessable.

Looks like some cars had been broken into. Three areas of the parking lot had shattered window glass,so we kept on going. Looks like some SUP lessons were going on

I have taken my kids to most Mothers beaches around so-Cal (Yes, there are multiple). They all are situated in or near Marinas so the water isn't really that clean but the only waves you experience are from slowly passing boats. This is definitely one of the cleanest mothers beachest and the attached park just makes it even more entertaining... More

This beach is a quiet, clean, and not crowded. It is a great spot to relax and paddle board. I recommend visiting this place if you want to view a scenic place in Marina Del Rey.

This is a great location to take your toddler to and let him have lots of fun at the beach and public playground.

Mothers beach is at the end of the Abbott Kinney made Marina. The water is not so clean and the shallows are a breeding ground for stingrays, so be careful. Great for walking on the beach but no so clean sea.

When we go to Marina del Rey we always enjoy the scenic view and the ocean air. The beach is nice and the ocean is calm. Great place to spend the day and soak up some son.

This beach (the roped off swimming area is great for anxious swimmers and young kids as they are no waves and no danger of sharks etc! We've been paddle boarding here too and loved it. Great bbq and picnic area fir groups. The restroom is always clean. The only annoying part is the parking fees!

My kids and I loved the park here. There were several different play structures to play on. It was clean and brightly colored. While there was some of the soft turf near and under the play structures, much of it is sand - which is great. Only drawback is that it costs $10 to park.

Thank Charity B
