Perfect place to hangout with friends.. A heavy dinner somewhere in one of the many good options in the area, followed by a pleasant walk along the Marine drive and a few hours spent chatting sitting by the sea has always made for a fine evening!

This place has what all have been hearing for decades, a view of the Queen's Necklace and a native of Bombay would find this sight very normal. But is you take a moment and soak in the view it is beautiful. This is one of those few things that you could soak in, a little ahead is Bombay's most famous... More

Marine Drive can add smile to your face when you sit here to feel Bombay. Also, there are good dessert places nearby - at walking distance is Rustom Ice-cream and Naturals and Baskin Robbins as well.

Marine drive is a nice place to walk along the seashore and take a break from the shopping (that what most visitors do I Mumbai). But don't go during the day as its hot. Or during the weekend as its too crowded.

Likes 1. Refreshing sea Breeze 2. Safe promenade 3. Good for running 4. Piping hot chai Dislike 1. New lights that have been installed. While they may be better for the environment, have ruined the charm of the road considerably

We walked yesterday (Sunday) at Marine drive promenade. We had visited Trident Oberoi for a lunch with friends and after a sumptuous meal, had to take long walk (strolling) to digest the food. The walk was good, and one can easily cover the 3-4KM stretch if one has good company. Just ignore the pestering beggars and hawkers trying to sell... More

I walked the stretch and what a feeling.. this is beyond words and one should experience.. If you are a foodie, you will endjoy the chats and other quick ready foods available along.

A good place to watch the sun set and sky line of South Mumbai. The best place to visit is the wave breaker at the edge of Nariman Point.

Ask the driver to drop you at NCPA end. Go for a walk as long as you can on marine drive. Preferable time evening after 7 pm. The lights will be on and there will be good sea breeze. You can even take Victoria ride. You may like to walk the pier at NCPA end.
