Marina Del Rey
Marina del Rey is an affluent unincorporated seaside community and census-designated place in Los Angeles County, California. Fisherman’s Village offers a view of Marina del Rey’s dominant feature, the marinas, as it is the world’s largest man-made small craft harbor with 19 marinas with capacity for 5,300 boats and is home port to approximately 6,500 boats. The harbor, the Los Angeles Times said in 1997, is “perhaps the county’s most valuable resource”
The marina itself, a specially designed harbor with moorings for pleasure craft and small boats, is surrounded by high-rise condos, hotels, apartments, shops, and restaurants. The area also includes the University of Southern California Information Sciences Institute, the UCLA Marina Aquatic Center, and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers.
The marina is also known for its enjoyable water sports. Motorboats and Kayaks can be rented at the Fisherman’s Wharf area for very reasonable prices. The marina offers access to the Pacific ocean for boaters and Kayakers can enjoy exploring the spread out basins.
