Marine Drive Overview

Ranked 1 of 770 sightseeing in Mumbai

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.

Awesome relaxing place

I visited Mumbai some time back with friends, on a weekend. We stayed in colaba and visited few places. Marine Drive is one of them. It is exactly as I had seen on. We took a long walk and spent a whole evening there. Its an awesome place to relax . The gateway of India was close by at a walkable distance to our hotel. We visited Elephanta caves, Haji ali Dargah, SiddiVinayak temple, Lalbag Ganesh and Juhu Beach.

Queen's Necklace

The Marine Drive is also known as the Queen's Necklace because, the street lights resemble a string of pearls in a necklace, if it is viewed at night from an elevated point anywhere along the drive. The road links Nariman Point to Babulnath and Malabar Hill. One can enjoy local food on stalls specially bhel Puri while moving on the road side. The night view from any of the building is great.

Peaceful

I usually travel solo for work still in love with Marine drive as I usually travel here at late night. the street never sleeps and have too much crowd but still all are busy with themselves and are so much relaxed and into a pleasant mood, this is a place to relax and long walk and Chowpatty at an end to fulfil your foodie vibes.

Marine Drive Promenade

It is such a beautiful site to take a run in the morning for the fitness freaks or a long leisurely walk during sunset preferably with people you love. It can become a bit dirty with waste sadly thrown into the water.

Queen's Necklace

The gorgeous Marine Drive is rightfully called as the Queen's Necklace. Its an ideal place for a morning / evening walk and soak in the sea breeze. This stretch is also the lifeline for South Mumbai, and one of the key roads wherein thousands of vehicles pass by everyday. See it in the night and its not short of a queen's necklace.

Marine Drive is a rather walk-way worth the name

Excellent for walking along the wide side-walks in the early morning and evenings when the lights are on. It is indeed queen's necklace. Walk and relax in the soothing breeze of the Arabian Sea.
