“over crowded”
3 of 5 bubbles 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.

“Cruises”

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 bubbles 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.

“Cleanliness is needed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

Marine Drive- is superb for walking/ jogging for families or couples or friends. But this Marine Drive
needs to be cleaned regularly. People have to be told/ advised to use the dustbins. Weekday morning walks are fun as it is not crowded.

Hawkers are there to buy cold drinks, snacks, water, etc.
