This is one of the most iconic places in Mumbai. This is a beautifully maintained structure on the waterfront, in front of the Taj Mahal hotel, with a statue of Vivekananda in a park right next to it. The jetty has boat trips of the Mumbai sea-side, and launches to two attractions, Elephanta island (the site fo the famous caves), and Alibaug, home to some nice forts close-by, and lovely beaches!

One of the heavily crowded tourist locations in Mumbai. It is located opposite to the Taj hotel of Mumbai. From the boat jetty you can get many boats going to Elephanta Caves ( Around 1 hour boat ride). Evenings are the best time to visit this place.

Gateway of India was built during 1911 when King George of Britain visited India. This is an iconic place in the city just opposite the famous Taj Hotel. Must visit place if you are travelling the city.

Interesting landmark at the very bottom of Mumbai, but apart from a quick glance from the outside there is not much to see there. Maybe the ironic history of it's construction gives it more interest.

Good place to spend some time.
one can just click snaps. get oneself clicked.
Sit idle gazing out to the distant horizon over the sea.
Or One could take Boat ride/s as per choice.
Adjacent to Tajmahal Hotel another Mumbai Landmark.
Animal lovers can have a nice time feeding the pigeons.
Moreover Enjoy oneself no need to worry about spending a lot of money people with limited budget can also have a good time.
