Marina del Rey Holidays

Lazy days are what Marina del Rey holidays are all about. This relaxed little harbour town is just along the coast from Venice Beach, while the hurly burly of downtown LA is less than a half-hour drive away. But all that seems a long way off when you're stretched out on the sand, listening to the water lap gently on the shore, or sitting in the cool shade of a dock-side restaurant watching the boats in the harbour.

Boats are big news on Marina del Rey holidays. They're everywhere and glancing up to see yet another sleek yacht slicing through the water is one of the lasting memories you'll take home with you. But there's plenty of opportunity for you to get out on the water yourself. Cruises leave the marina all day long to take in the ocean and the fantastic So-Cal sunset; or if you're feeling active, there are canoes and paddle boards for hire.

When it's time to hit the beach then there's a sheltered cove on the lagoon with waveless water just perfect for smaller kids. There are also picnic tables, barbeque grills and a playground that make for the ideal family day out. And there are other beaches nearby too. If you want to go ocean-side then the soft sand of Playa del Rey is just a couple of miles away - and high-energy Venice Beach is a mere 15-minute stroll along the boardwalk.

Options for eating and drinking here are plentiful, and most come with superb ocean or marina views. You can snack on succulent seafood whilst watching sea lions pop their heads above the waves and boats sailing to and fro, or head over to nearby Venice and Santa Monica for a change of scene. On Marina del Rey holidays, the options are endless.

Fisherman's Village

One of the best places to hang out is Fisherman's Village on the harbour - a recreation of a New England seaport complete with painted wooden buildings and a lighthouse. It's a bustling sort of place with great views and lots of places to eat, drink and buy souvenirs, as well as free afternoon concerts every weekend. Look out for seals and pelicans.

Take to Two Wheels

There are plenty of bikes for hire in Marina del Rey, as well as the perfect route to ride them: the Marvin Braude Coastal Bike Trail. Head south and you can cycle along the 12 or so mile track to Torrance Beach, past numerous other stretches of sand where you can stop for a swim. Go the other way and you quickly come to Venice and Santa Monica.

Burton Chace Park

Occupying one of the fingers that jut out into the marina, Burton Chace Park is a pleasantly green spot ideal for watching the boats go by and for spotting seals and sea lions. During the summer there's free classical, jazz and pop concerts in the park every Thursday and Saturday evening.

Reel 'Em In

Join a fishing trip from the harbour and sail off in search of halibut, yellowtail, sea bass and more. Boats leave in the morning, afternoon and at twilight. If you prefer your feet on solid ground, you can also fish from either of the marina's jetties and from Burton Chace Park.

Santa Monica Pier

An icon of the Southern California coast, Santa Monica's famous pier is a must-see while you're here. You can stroll its length for fantastic views; buy ice cream at a kiosk; ride the Ferris wheel and the rollercoaster at Pacific Park; and visit the animals at the aquarium.

Getting around:
With so many sights spread across a vast urban landscape the best way to see Southern California is the way the locals do, behind the wheel. Car hire is available from £21 per day.

Insider Tip:
When in Marina del Rey, do as the locals do and enjoy a delicious brunch overlooking the water. If you’d rather see the coast from the water, you can take a Hornblower champagne brunch cruise aboard a luxury yacht.
