Top ways to experience Juhu Beach
The area
Neighborhood: Juhu
Home to the iconic Juhu Beach, acclaimed Prithvi Theatre & ISKCON Temple, this breezy sea-facing neighbourhood is one of the city’s jewels, studded with homes of Bollywood celebrities, designer boutiques, swanky sea-facing restaurants, hip pubs & discotheques, a range of hotels along the shore suiting every budget, sea-food specialty restaurants and a variety of street food like Pav Bhaji, Bhel Puri and Pani Puri at the beach. And for those seeking some calm in the hustle bustle, watching the sunset while taking a stroll along the vibrant beach with a carnivalesque atmosphere is worth an experience.

I visited this beach in the evening and it kept on getting busy by the hour as the sunset started. The beaches are full of local vendors selling all kinds of goods and food items on the beach itself. There are food stalls in a kind of open food court selling local food items at entry. Bigger restaurants are just a walk away on the main road. Chargeable toilet services are present at entry but poorly maintained. Good place to enjoy the evening. Could not see any water sports. The beach appeared clean. Lot of regular walkers and a large number of city people, lead to a huge crowd by sunset. It is a very long beach so you can walk along and find less crowded areas to sit down

I am from Delhi and visited this beach in June 2022 with family. This beach is enjoyable during sunset. Despite of muddy sea water and dirty sand, its still enjoyable at the sunset time for some stunning sunset views. I spent two evening in this beach and the thing I noticed is that this beach is going to be vanished in coming years if no action taken. In Delhi, mostly all public places have dustbins and strictness about not throwing the waste here and there. In this beach I found that no one is worried about cleanness. People eating kulfi, gola, bhutta, etc etc.. and throwing gola glasses, kulfi stick, eaten bhutta stick, polythene and all sort of waste anywhere on beach..very sad. Dustbin are very rare only with some food stalls. Every few steps on beach you will strike with a garbage thing. The situation is actually critical but no mumbaikar is worried about it.. as if Swachh Bharat Abhiyan has nothing to do with Mumbai. This beach's future is looking like of Girgaon chowpati where now its impossible to go in water during low tide as the beach is full of garbage. Very said that the city municipality, state bodies all busy with politics, millionaires and stars living in city spend time on foreign beaches and no one thinks about Amchi Mumbai.

Good place for Morning & Evening Jogging or walking. This Arabian Seashore gets little busy during evening and busier on weekends.

Beach is clean, sandy and safe. However it is advisable to avoid getting into deep water as life guard is not present all through the beach. Also avoid sitting in dark spots during night visit. Be aware of miscreants, snatchers in far side off the main beach & dark areas adjacent to by lanes.

Juhu Beach is the most popular beach in Mumbai among the tourists and locals and hence mostly crowded. It is a long beach and certain sports / fun activities are also available, also seems to be a preferred place for locals for morning & evening jogs / walks. The beach is also known for several street food stalls with a distinctive Mumbai taste like Pav, Bhel, Pani Puri, Kulfi-Faluda etc. While buying anything on the beach, a proper negotiation with the vendor is recommended. The neighboring area of the beach happens to be one of the posh localities in the city, which houses several Bollywood biggies. Several prominent hotels are located at the beach side. Parking could be an issue during peak hours. The place has its own vibe and an ideal place for spending some relaxing and entraining time with family and friends.

We were staying in the area from 3rd to 6th March, so we were regular visitors to this beach.

One of the main features of the beach area are the Food Stalls On Juhu Chowpatty. Making and cooking wonderful including the famous Pav Bhaji.

There are a few places of interest nearby, Gandhi Statue, Mermaid Statue and Chatrapati Shivaji Monument.

There are no sunloungers or umbrellas along the beach, not really a holiday beach. Some visitors do come and sit on the sand.

The authorities do endeavour to keep the beach clean, including a tractor raking the sand and removing the litter. It is a thankless task as some visitors are reluctant to take their rubbish away or place in the bins.

In the evenings there are thousands of people along the beach watching the sunset and enjoying the cool sea breeze, some got into the sea.

There are loads of hawkers selling, sweets, snacks, inflated balloons, candy floss and so much more. There were a number of beggars, mainly young children.

On evening we were having a sun downer, beer, at the Bay View Bar (Citizen Hotel), a guest gave 2 beggars a large carton of food, which he purchased in the hotel. They looked at it and when the guest left the tossed cartoon and food onto the beach for the crowd to eat, were not that hungry then.

One day we walked along the beach and we were surprised the see the amount of rubbish in the sand including condoms.

The Juhu beach is a much admired beach in Mumbai. A very long beach that is surrounded by iconic hotels and residents of famous cine personalities.

No tickets, better to go in the evening. Mumbai is always humid; so avoid the mornings. The beach is open till late night 11 pm. On weekdays, less crowded. But come holidays and weekends, the place teems with people.

It is a favourite place for jogging among locals. If you are lucky, you can spot a celebrity.

Water is clean, the beach is far cleaner than others in Mumbai.

Approx 2 hours is enough to cover the important parts of the beach.

The waters are safe, and the beach area too is safe but finish by 8 pm. Lot of eateries dot the beach---Mumbai special flavours like vada pav and pav bhaji are easily the best.

In Mumbai, your itinerary is incomplete without a visit to Juhu beach.

During our Christmas holidays we had visited the beautiful Juhu Beach in Mumbai. We had visited the beautiful Iskcon temple in Juhu and from there we had walked to the beach. At the beach, we sat on the sand and enjoyed sunset over the sea while the skyline changed colors from yellow to red to orange. The Beach is crowded with tourists and locals enjoying walking or jogging or bathing. It was a nice experience soaking in the sea breeze and the fun atmosphere.

Juhu is a very famous beach in Mumbai. Specially because many Bollywood celebrities lives in this area. Then there is Juhu beach where people go for picnic, enjoying the sunset, relaxing on the fine sand and spending some quality time with friends and family.

The famous Juhu beach is quite clean compared to the last time when we had visited 15yrs back....its better to visit late evening once the crowds thin. However, children begging for food are quite irritating. The crowd, the liveliness of this beach makes a human being happy and fresh too
