Marina Del Rey
As young trendsetters trickled south into its sister cities, Hermosa and Redondo, Manhattan Beach morphed into a polished seaside respite with a reputation for respectability. Residents enjoy its sun, surf and sportiness, with a mellowed attitude and an earlier bedtime. The area is a popular tourism destination for both land and water activities such as paddle board and kayak rentals, dining cruises, and yacht charters. Land activities include bicycling on several bicycle paths, walking paths along the waterfront, and birdwatching (birding). Wildlife watching opportunities include California sea lions and harbor seals. Dolphins and whales occasionally visit the deeper waters of harbor. Only a handful of miles away from LAX, MDR is incredibly convenient for traveling and a boat. Surrounded by award winning restaurants, world famous beaches, and unlimited marina activities, there is something here for everyone. Take the family to Venice Beach, the Santa Monica Pier, go sportfishing or whale watching, enjoy a romantic sunset cruise dinner and rent a kayak or a boating adventure around the marina. There are over 50 restaurants within a few minutes of your slip. And with only 4 miles from LAX, and 10 minutes from Santa Monica, this marina is your gateway to some of the finest cultural locations in Southern California!
