Marina del Rey
Marina del Rey, more than eight miles of water frontage
Carved out of wetlands and swamp in the late early 1960s, Marina del Rey today is one of the world’s largest pleasure boat harbors, boasting 5,300 slips, a plethora of restaurants and shops, single family homes, high- and low-rise condominiums and apartments that front the more than eight miles of water frontage. Under the supervision of the Corps of Engineers and Los Angeles County, Marina del Rey has seen its second generation of new condominium towers and slips that attract Angelinos and visitors from around the world.
The Marina is situated by Venice Beach to the north and Playa del Rey to the south, both thriving communities that are seeing a tremendous growth in high-tech companies in an area now designated Silicon Beach. Marina del Rey has long been the playground for the young and affluent and with its strategic location within the burgeoning Silicon Beach region, it continues to attract the upwardly mobile entrepreneurs and techies.
