A nice cool place to spend your evening with good shopping malls and a seaside view. With boats and cargo ships hovering around and the street vendors- indeed an unique experience

A nice place to stroll in the evening & watch the sunset, Nothing much to do . May be some window shopping or some street food from the hawkers.On a clear day you will definitely see some of the mesmerising sunsets.

Walked on marine drive just yesterday, there are a lot of malls and shops but not a single one doesn't look like a dump. Ignoring the malls, the walkway is spacious and relaxing but can get a bit crowded on weekends. You can see the famous Taj Gateway hotel when you walk by. If you come by car there's a payed parking opposite the drive (but we just parked on the road because there wasn't much traffic). Tourist boating facilities available to take you to the different islands. But overall Marine Drive isn't very special. If you need to use the bathroom go to Bay Pride Mall and use it there because the other malls don't have one for some reason.

Marine drive's one of the famous areas in Cochin. The Marine Drive walkway has plenty of shops and malls right next to it, including the famous Taj Gateway Hotel. There are tourist boating attractions at this area which take you to the fishing net areas and the Bolghatty Palace But I should warn you about the terrible odor that drifts from the dirty water in that area. It can be really overpowering.
