“Dont miss this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

Ernakulam has a lot of attactions on the sides of marine drive. You can take a service boat to Fort kochi or Vypin from Ernakulam jetty to save a lonely expensive journey on a tourist boat...you will get a feel of local life as well.

“Good place for a nice walk in the evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

This place is one of the best spots in Kochi. This place is packed with all kinds of stuffs. Its ideal for a nice evening chill out. It also has people selling you snacks and other things. This place also offer a boat ride if you want to for 1 hour or so.

“over crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

The marine drive has lost its sheen with over crowding particularly in the weekends. The best time is to got after 7:30 PM on the weekdays. the new walking path and the bridge has added to the charm a bit. The sunsets are nice to enjoy.

Lovely Cruises giving you delightful insights into the backwaters and a lovely view of the landscape. The Kochi fishing nets are are an amazing sight and quite interesting to understand the way of use.

“Walk to Marine drive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

I was on a business trip to Ernakulam/Cochin and due to meeting cancellation got evening free. Not knowing what to do, I had a nice stroll upto Marine drive. The walk to marine drive was very good (from maharani college end). One could get a feel of the local life. The marine drive itself is OK sort. Crowded. Also as the drive is not facing open sea but on a waterway meant for port. So don't expect any great sea views or beach etc.
