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.

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.

The Queens Necklace

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 ‘Drive’ 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

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.

Best to visit this place during sunset.

Marie Drive also known as "Queen's Necklace" because of its C shape view. Best place for couples, friends and family. Best to visit in evening during sunset.
