About Marine Stadium

As a county beach, Marine Stadium has firepits, restrooms, showers and street parking. Lifeguards are on duty at daylight hours.

The Long Beach Marine Stadium was created in 1932 to host the rowing events of the Olympics.  Since then, various rowing competitions and commercial water sport events are held here. The long, narrow and rectangular shape makes it perfect for water skiing and rowing. Launch ramp is on the northwest side.

If you plan to spend more time here, you may consider staying at the hotels nearby. Motel 6 and Seaport Marina Hotel are some of the economical choices.  While the Best Western Golden Sails Hotel is conveniently located near the stadium and is 3-minute drive away.

Here is Marine Stadium on the map.


Nearby Attractions

While most people visit the beach just for a day of sand, sun, surf and fun, there are actually many interesting attractions all within easy reach of the beach. So if you want to combine some activities in a day in the area, or simply want to allow some members of your group to do different things, then consider some of these nearby attractions.

Point Dume - At the end of the beach, visible as you look all the way to the left while facing the sea, Point Dume is a rocky promontory that juts out into the Pacific Ocean. The point, a long bluff, forms the northern end of the Santa Monica Bay. It is most interesting as a rock climbing location as the rocking mound forms a natural climbing wall with very moderate single pitch rock climbing routes that are perfect for the beginner or training, or simply for those simply wishing to try out natural rock climbing.
