Not so crowded during the day. Place you must visit if you are in Mumbai I think the night view is even better

There is something about Marine Drive which makes me forget almost all my concerns (albeit for a while) the moment I get there. On a cool evening hours can just fly by while you sit or walk around, doing nothing much. Must visit for anyone visiting Mumbai.

It was my favourite spot for a walk in Mumbai, any time of a day. Following it you can reach temples, gardens or beach. There are numerous restaurants, ice cream cafes etc. Really good for running as well. Great views of the sea. You can seat and observe waves or crabs.

Don't see a date just see the time before you visit Marine Drive. Any given day evening is the best time to visit Marine Drive. The sea waves touching the city boundary lines and cool breeze blowing in at sunset gives a wonderful feeling and you would not like to move from here and wish that the evening lasts forever....

Marine drive truly is a wow place. Can go there from the Mumbai VT railway station (western railway). Its a 15-20 mins walkable distance away. Walking is recommended to take in the beauty of the place. It showcases Mumbai - its opulence, sea, fast lanes, et al. Must spend some quality time on the concrete walls on the streets of... More

Everything was exellent and I liked walking with my wife and kid on the very beautiful marine drive. However try to be there after sunset because it's hot while sun. Late evenings are more beautiful so don't bother on timing and just enjoy
