Welcome to Marina del Rey
Idyllic beach community nestled between fantastic tourist destinations
Marina del Rey is a gorgeous neighborhood that sits on 1.5 square miles along the scenic Pacific shores. A coastal community situated between Venice and Los Angeles, Marina del Rey has all the charm of a beach town while maintaining access to all that Los Angeles has to offer. An unincorporated city known as “The Gem of Los Angeles,” the community centers itself around the harbor.
Towering condo and apartment complexes make up most of Marina del Rey’s housing, with average rent prices ranging from $2,000 to $16,000, depending on layout and location. Locals flock to the area for the dazzling water. The proximity to the ocean and Marina Beach, colloquially known as Mother’s Beach for its roped wading area, make this town a sought-after coastal haven.
A water lover’s dream, the marina is stacked with an array of boats—ranging from sailboats to yachts—and is a vital part of day-to-day life for Marina del Rey residents. An affluent community, a majority of the residents make over $75,000 a year. Home of the largest man-made marina in the country, the community prides itself on connection to the water and the ocean.
Residents enjoy a laid-back, beachy lifestyle while maintaining a connection to the surrounding cities. Close to major freeways that make for an easy commute to larger, nearby communities, Mariana del Rey is a great location for those working in Los Angeles’ hustle and bustle but enjoy a more peaceful home life.
Close to Santa Monica, Venice, and Culver City, it’s easy to find great food and shopping near home. Fisherman’s Village
, located on the southeastern side of the marina, is full of local dining, ice cream shops, and souvenir boutiques, all nestled along the water’s edge. This is also a great place to spot sea lions sunning on the docks.
Just to the north lies Burton Chace Park. Named after Los Angeles County Supervisor Burton W. Chace, this park is a local favorite and one of the top places to visit in Marina del Rey. Perfect for picnics, the park has incredible views of the harbor and is home to barbeque pits and wonderful outdoor programs. The park also doubles as an event space. For those looking for adventure, kayaks and stand-up paddleboards are available to rent at Mother’s Beach, a local favorite. Whether you’re looking for relaxation or action, Mariana del Rey has it all!
