Marine Drive Beach is situated along the shoreline of the Arabian Sea and stretches right from the Nariman Point to the foot of Malabar Hill. The two ends of the beach come across as completely contrasting, with the Nariman Point being a concrete jungle and Malabar Hill being resplendent with nature's beauty. Marine Drive Beach was reclaimed from the Back Bay in 1920 and since then, it has been extremely popular amongst the locals as well as the tourists visiting the Mumbai city of India.
Cool breezes sweeping the beach serve as an excellent relaxant for the
body and its cool sands lure you to take long walks. Marine Drive Beach
stretches over an area of approximately three kilometers and is very
popular amongst kids who come here to run around, play games and have
fun. Even couples frequent the place in large numbers to spend sometime
in solitude. You will find a large number of hawkers at the Marine Drive
Beach, selling delicious street food, local knick knacks, and so on.
The beach is also quite famous for its amazing sunset views. One of the
most popular promenades in Mumbai, marine Drive will catch you unawares
with its picturesque beauty. The road running along the beach has been
termed as the 'Queen's Necklace', because of the spectacular curve of
its glittering streetlights at night. Whenever you are in the Mumbai
city, make sure to visit this magnificent beach and lose yourself in the
fun that seems to be resonating in its surroundings.
