If you’re visiting the Los Angeles County area, one of your best bets for some fun in the sun is Marina Del Rey. “It’s an ideal spot for a half-day getaway that conveniently takes you right to the water’s edge,” says the Los Angeles Times. This scenic coastal community, which sits between Venice and Playa del Rey, has so much to offer that we think you might want to hang around as long as you can. In addition to a slew of recreational activities, you can dine at a waterfront restaurant or in the open water.

Reconnect with the outdoors and soak in the sunsets and fresh ocean breezes in this seaside community known as one of the best places to live in California. Set sail, paddleboard, or parasail, or take a stroll along the coast. It’s all in Marina Del Rey. Here are our recommended favorite things to do.

Những điều cần làm trên mặt nước

When in Marina del Rey, do things with water. In the water. Near the water. It’s the perfect place-starting with paddleboarding. What is called SUP, or stand-up paddleboarding is most popular, especially lately with celebrities. What’s great about Marina del Rey is that the water is calm, which is perfect for SUP, even if it’s your first time.

There are several spots set up around the harbor including Fisherman’s Village and Marina, aka “Mother’s” Beach, which is ideal for newbies.

Marina del Rey is also an ideal place for parasailing. Whether it’s your first time or you’ve done it before, you’ll catch some fantastic panoramic views of Venice Beach Boardwalk and Santa Monica Pier. You can choose 500- or 800-foot rides through Marina del Rey Parasailing.

Get whisked up above the Pacific Ocean and observe frolicking dolphins while being part of the quiet and beautiful skyline. Enjoy the boat ride for the remainder of your time while not up in the air and feel the ocean breeze while admiring amazing surroundings.

Hop on board the WaterBus during the summer to get you where you need to go or for a quick cruise around the Marina Harbor.

Điểm ăn uống tại Marina del Rey

Marina del Rey has come a long way from the typical waterside fare. Try Salt. “Located on the bottom floor of the Marina del Rey Hotel, Salt has one of the best views of the marina, and their outside deck is the perfect place to watch the boats go by while pretending you’re Gwyneth Paltrow,” says The Infatuation. They have a nice breakfast and brunch but an even better choice for dinner. Order the seafood tower, kung pao octopus, or lobster pasta.

How about a little farm-to-table cuisine? Cast & Plow’s menu informs diners which farm grew the berries in their breakfast parfait and which winery produced the evening’s glass of wine. Ingredients are locally sourced creating California cuisine in its truest sense. The views of the marina and fire tables provide an amazing place to relax and enjoy stunning seaside views at The Ritz Carlton’s signature restaurant.

If you stick around late, check out Killer Café, which is one of the only restaurants that are always open in Marina Del Rey. This 24-hour restaurant has the comfort food you crave from Killer Nachos to the Café Club. There’s also the homemade lasagna. It all goes great with a specialty drink, beer, or wine.
