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

"Best place for evening stroll" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
The Marine Drive is undoubtedly among the best places in Mumbai for an evening stroll. The whole stretch is very neat and clean and is free of hawkers. There is sufficient police present for security. One can while away time just sitting on the parapet and gazing into the horizon towards the sea. One of my favourite places in Mumbai.

The place offers excellent and beautiful view of the city of Mumbai. Evening is the best time to visit and offers a great view and good amount of crowd. You'll find some light street side snacks. Overall a must visit place to relax and unwind in Mumbai.

You can enjoy on beach with friends and family. One can sit down and relax specially during sunrise and sunset. Try tea and pavbhaji by vendors there, you will live it.

Service about average. No clarification on GST which is being charged. Room service average. It did give feeling of premium hotel but the taj feeling was missing. Also the ongoing construction ...

Awesome place to chill out with friends!

View is ultimately out of the world and after seeing the water in front, all stress goes out! The place is Super Awesome.

"Nights will never be lonely when you are sitting at Marine Drive"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
One of my favorite places in Mumbai, It is usually open all day and night unless the cops come and ask you to move. You see hundreds of people running around, chit chatting, singing, walking and playing - kids to grandparents. It's a place for everyone.

If you are in Mumbai, never miss an opportunity to visit this place in the nights. Maybe visit Nariman point for sunset and sit at Marine Drive till you drop and catch the first train back to the chaotic city.

It's a very good place to see specially at night. The whole city is lighted up, the tall buildings of Mumbai are full of lights and the flowing water also looks great. The government of Mumbai has put some beautiful rocks there so that the water could not come inside the road.
