I liked the beach compare to marina regarding cleanliness and crowd however less option for food and to buy the things. Still i loved to go once in the month.

Its one of the oldest beach in chennai. This has array of food options and time pass available for visitors. I love sitting near the ocean and enjoying my evenings. Checkout the bee line of shops in the adjacent road for some good food.

Cafés by the beach side, beach side walk trail, clean beach. Only issue is the beach is becoming more and more crowded. But if u don't mind that, this is an awesome stretch to unwind n chill

The best of this beach is it's not dirty and it doesn't stink. Apart from that it is one of the posh areas of the city. So you really enjoy an evening stroll along the coastline on the sand!!

A must visit place in Chennai. Restaurant is available. Also visit the beasant nagar church which is stone's throw away. Try out some south indian dishes across the road near the beach. Best time is to go in the evening and spend few hours sitting on the banks of the sea shore. Generally well maintained. Sunday and holidays expect lot... More
