Marine Drive is the best sea-face you ever encounter in India, I bet. And the main aura of Mumbai lies in it. The famous queen's necklace attributes that lovely crescent shape and Nariman Point with all lofty office head-quarters at its banks makes Mumbai the familiar business hub. The enticing promenade along Marine Drive has some great hotels (I stayed... More

Come here on a Sunday evening, just before sunset and just sit and observe the many people, of different walks of life, both rich and poor, Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Parsi, Sikh, Jain, old and young just sitting walking talking and watching sunset views. This is not an ordinary drive, but one of India's oldest and most vibrant drives - Marine... More

This is the Marine Drive or the Queen's Necklace. The second name was given due to the resemblance with a necklace during the night when all the street lights are on. You can take the long walk and enjoy the sight of muddy waters of the Arabian Sea and also the sunsets if you decide so. There is nothing much... More

Marine Drive skirts the edge of Mumbai harbour, a huge expanse at the eastern end of the Arabian Sea. There are excellent hotels at the Nariman Point end of the road, such as the Oberoi and the Trident, and there are shopping centres and very good restaurants along the Drive as you approach Chowpatty Beach. A special feature are the... More

I visit this terrific place every Saturdays with my old college friends. I have been visiting from past two years and continue to do it. This is the most happening place, you can sit, walk, run or do whatever you want. The best part is nobody bothers you. I, with my friends, sit for hours on Saturday evenings and enjoy... More

This is the place that you want to be in the dead of the night. When the notorious Mumbai traffic has become a bit quiet just head out and enjoy the beautiful lights that line the road as if a chain of diamonds. However, if you cannot get there in the dark the morning hours are also quite nice to... More

Marine Drive is one of the most beautiful place in Mumbai. I've been there with some friends after midnight and it was really nice to chill out and have a hot beverage. The view was awesome. Love the atmosphere...
