“good walkaway in early morning”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

there is a lack of coffee or tea shop for early morning walkers. the view is awsome in the morning and the musical voice of birds just touches my heart and my soul. good place for spending some peaceful time

“Good place to spend your evening”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Marine drive is the best place in Kochi for a walk in the evening to see the hue of the evening sun and the mixed colours of people perfectly blended to give a soothing time off the hustle and bustle of the city. The food from the restaurants are good but the roasted peanuts served by the kadalawallas are better to munch through out the walk. The walkway is well paved and maintained with good seats to make you relaxed for good snap of the setting sun. the boat rides are quite cheap(Rupees 2 only) if you board on the local transport boats or just Rupees 50 for the sightseeing boats. If you are reaching in the morning the walkway is quieter and will have the who is who in Kochi having a brisk morning walk. The dental clinic at Marine Drive can brighten your smile and Taj Gateway could give you a good stay overlooking the sea.
