About Marine Drive (Offbeat Attraction)

78%
voted as clean

Marine Drive is a skilfully laid-out boulevard, stretching along the coastline of Arabian Sea in South Mumbai. Built in an inverted C shape, this 3 km long concrete road connects the Nariman Point to Malabar Hills. Officially, it is named as Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Road. It is also known by sobriquets like ‘Queen’s Necklace’ as it appears to be a string of pearls, when viewed from a height during night.

This boulevard is popular as a sunset point among people, especially travellers. The road is lined by palm trees, which make it, appear like a beautiful walkway that is perfect to take a stroll. Besides, the road also houses plenty of hotels alongside that have the highest real estate prices in India in today’s time. To the north is the Chowpatty Beach, which is famous among Mumbaikars and travellers for local fast food.

The nearest local station to the Marine Drive is the Churchgate Station. Tourists can either walk to the road from the station or take up taxis, auto rickshaws, buses or even a tanga.

Admission Fees: Free

"The Queens Necklace" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 days ago
A combination of a natural and man made design that enthralls visitors both during the day and during the night. Driving down the Now world famous Marine is both a driver's delight and a visitors delight- a visual treat inmotion. To keep gazing at the horizon and watching the stray boats passing by or the ships in the distant is a treat to the eyes. One can nibble at salted peanuts while strolling or sit at the various restaurants along the bay to prolong the pleasure of the Drive.
A must see on a visitors' itinerary.

"The place to relax"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
One place in Mumbai where you can beat the fast paced life and relax in peace! This place will relax you and you can zone out in you own thoughts while watching the arabian sea and enjoying the wind!! The only request to people who plan to visit is that please do not throw your wastes in water or leave it where you sit. Please do not ruin the beauty of the place.

"City that never sleeps&yet known as city of dreams"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
It was an amazing and unforgettable experience, the city with the perfect mixture of all the possible variations & moods. If you are a party freak it can't get better, if you are a peace lover it can't get better, may you love travelling or just staying in one place and watching the day pass it can't get better. You got the best disc & pubs for the party & the best sea sides to sit and enjoy the natural beauty and get peace of mind. You can travel to places like Karjat & experience the difference side of Mumbai full of natural beauty best for adventurous activities. Mumbai is the high tech city of India where you can see skyscrapers as well. Mumbai is also known as city of dreams & A city that never sleeps, well the titles earned by this city says the story. If you visit India or you already live in India then Mumbai is a must visit place. Loved it lived it.

"Wonderful place. Clean and tidy"

  • Posted 3 months ago
The only place near the sea I found in Mumbai which was worth spending couple of hours in the evening or late night. The public usually sit and talk here and enjoy the beautiful sea view and sound

"Magnificiant Marine Drive"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
The place is worth seeing and has a great atmosphere. It was originally called Queen's Necklace because of its shape. The Sea Front is great with unprecedented scenes of tides rising and falling. At sunset it gives you out of the world experience. My experience was fabulous, fantastic amazing and awesome. Would like to visit again and again. It is great spot for clicking photographs.

"Best place for a leisure evening walk"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Sep 22, 2017
It is one place in Mumbai where the breeze never ends, where walking and running finds feasibility amidst the harrowing humid heat. As one walks on seaside pavement, one is caught between the noisy waves of the Arabian sea and hundreds of Mumbaikars sitting with family and friends whispering the choicest secrets of love and harmony, building trusts and faith sometimes bruised by the supersonic life in a busy metro.

In the evening, the lights along the curved street are a precious match to a princess's necklace.

Strongly recommended to take a walk with your loved ones on marine drive.
