The Marina Beach can be beautiful on a clear day or foggy with light overcast. Sky diving is popular at the beach and classes are offered throughout the week. Dogs aren't aloud. 😔. Beach has nice trail to hike and opened daily till sundown.

It was a fairly warm day in LA so we decided to go to Marina Beach. Unfortunately the cold winds over the pacific made it chilly at the beach. However, the beach is clean and very spacious. Better go in the summer time!

Quieter than Venice Beach and very beautiful. It is accessible by a wonderful bike path than can be joined right from the Marina Del Rey Hotel.

I went into the water even though it was cold, I just love the sea! Not too crowded, probably not a busy time of the year.

Wonderful location & amenities. Restaurant was under construction but they provided heaters outside in the evenings and the food was outstanding!

As a traveler who makes frequent visit to Caribbean Sea this beach looks not so good. But it would be fine for children to play with the water.

Eh, it's ok. Oh wait, I grew up in Hawaii. But if you *weren't* raised someplace like that, then it's a terrific beach! I agree with some of the other reviews - the off leash dog problem (at times), and the cold water (but I'm a cold water wimp). But it's a good location, and you get a decent beach... More

It's a nice beach. But dog owners insist on breaking the law and taking their dogs to the beach. And worst, many of them are NOT on a leash. So be careful if you have small children.

One of my favorite beaches in the world. Long expansive powdery sand. Very quiet. You are usually only one of a few people on the beach at any time. Great place to meditate, do yoga, read, run and play volleyball. Search along the shore and you may even be lucky enough to find a sand dollar.
