The Marina

Located on the world’s largest man-made small-craft harbor, Jamaica Bay Inn is one of the few hotels located right on the water in Marina del Rey. Home to over 5,000 boats, this gorgeous marina features charming waterways, colorful boats, and year-around watersport rentals. Rent your own kayak, step aboard a harbor boat tour, or take a casual stroll along the marina's blue waters. Adjacent to Jamaica Bay Inn, hotel guests have easy access to stand-up paddle board rentals by Pro Sup Shop.

Mother’s Beach

This four-acre beach draws its name from the calm waters, as they are perfect for parents with small children to make a splash. Located right by the Jamaica Bay Inn, Mother’s Beach is staffed with lifeguards and has playground equipment, a grass lawn, volleyball courts, restrooms, sheltered picnic tables, and no waves - making it ideal for young families. With its serene waters, many believe this Marina del Rey beach is the ideal place to learn to kayak, windsurf, or stand-up paddle board.

Hornblower Cruises

Hornblower Cruises offers guided tours as well as dinner and dancing cruises, champagne brunches, and decadent holiday events. Explore the beauty of Marina del Rey from the water and set sail in the world’s biggest man-made small craft harbor!

Fisherman’s Village is a replica of a New England fishing town that features cobblestone paths perfect for an evening stroll. Browse souvenirs, eat at plenty of waterfront restaurants with outdoor dining, or rent a boat.
