we were lucky enough to be able to get a bargain hotel on this lovely sea front (bentley churchgate!) and we got to see this beautiful part of the city all the time! look for the queens pearls at night (the lights that surround the sea) and spend some time just enjoying this part of india!

Late Oct 2014, I stayed along one of the hotels on Marine Drive. Very happening place and serene also at the same time. Easy taxi ride to any of the areas, or if you want, you can walk the trail along the water. Its funny how they say the water is toxic - so make sure you don't dive in... More

In the evening a stroll along the curved sea beach gives a relaxing effect with winds blowing through your hair. There are plenty of hawkers along the route selling eatable and other stuff. Best part of the Marine... More

Lovely area for a walk, particularly in the cooler evenings when groups of friends and family come out.

Another must see place for visitors to Mumbai ..Marine Drive. The only place in Mumbai where the footpath is as wide as the road..and very well maintained. Want to catch up on exercise...walk walk along with the many others right from the NCPA end all the way till Girgaum Chowpatty.See it at night for the breathtaking Queens Necklace.

Marine Drive has not changed since I saw some 40 years back. Yes Natraj Hotel replaced with Inter-Continental Hotel and few other buildings. Love to take a walk in the evening.
