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.

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.

Best place in Mumbai to spent time with friends and family

Marine drive has been one of the iconic places of mumbai. It would a 10km long promenade stretching from trident hotel to chowpaty. while mornings and evening are great for walks, night time is amazing to spend time with friends and family sitting on the promenade. Look at the sea - sunsets - amazing necklace road along marine drive

Sea Views

These site is full paisa vasool, if you are visiting it during sunrise or sunset, A bit crowded at that time, you have to just sit back relax and enjoy the mindblowing views. There's a small beach as well, And a chawpatti to eat indian snacks.There cleanliness is maintained by BMC. You will be fined if you found making place dirty.

Long sea side walk with pleasant wind

This is the prime attraction of Mumbai. Long walk in the evenings can be perfect. Beware of heat during day time. Area tends to be excessively crowded during weekends. There are good restaurants around for food ( Tried and recommended - Pizza by the bay). Try out the famous parsi ice cream shop nearby.

Very good place for both tourist and the mumbaians. This place is very good for time spending, morning and evening walk, jogging etc. And the place is too neat and clean. U dont need to pay any kind of entry fees. There are plenty of veichels to go anywhere in mumbai. You can take trains, state bus, car, whatever you like.

Iconic place

Just driving along the place gives a very good vibe and the sea waves gives a sense of happiness and satisfaction. Did not see any parking space for 2-wheeler though, but good place to drive along. Evening or early morning is the best time to visit this wonderful place.
