Bordered by Venice Beach, Marina Del Rey is a seaside community located in Los Angeles County, California. The focal point of the area is the marina itself. Constructed in the late 1950s, it is home to over 5,000 small watercraft. Boats can be seen going in and out of the harbor daily. Venice Beach is less than a mile from Marina Del Rey. The 2-mile stretch of beach features artists, vendors and musicians along its famous Ocean Front Walk.
The marina sits 4 miles north of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and is serviced by three bus lines: Metro (MTA), Big Blue Bus and Culver City Bus. Taxis and rental cars are available. Guests seeking an alternative way to explore the area have the option of renting bicycles or roller blades. Hotels with marina or beach views can be found along Admiralty Way.
Lounges, restaurants, and bars are open late for your enjoyment. Many have outdoor cabanas and live entertainment. From Californian contemporary cuisine to Japanese sushi, you are sure to find something to delight your palate. Live outdoor concerts are held on select weekends throughout the year at Fisherman's Village Plaza. The coastal Mediterranean climate is mild year-round with minimal rainfall and plenty of warm sunny days. Ocean temperatures are an average of 60 degrees most of the year.
