“Breathtaking beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

For all travel enthusiasts visiting Mumbai,a trip to the city is incomplete w/o a visit to Marine Drive.Its beauty is really unique as you sit on the pomenrade & watch the sun set on the waters of the Arabian Sea,a view so majestic.Accessible throughout other than b/w 2-4 am,its the place to be during the monsoon to see the actual beauty of the Arabian Sea.You have lot of local vendors serving tea,snacks & water so everything is available easily if you want to spend some time over there.For the original romantics,its a must on the menu.

“Breezy n one of the lovely open spaces”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Lots of hotels and restaurants lined on this strech of road parallel to the sea, and when its evening the lit road lights are lit, it looks beautiful, true to its name - like a Queens necklace, from afar!
Lots of people come to just sit and enjoy the sea breeze, while many can be seen jogging or walking this stretch in the mornings and evenings.

Marine drive,according to me,is the most beautiful part of Mumbai.I hope one day most of Mumbai should be as beautiful as this -only a dream.This 4.5 km long boulevard from Nariman point to Malabar hill is a six lane well maintained concrete C shaped road along the coast of Arabian sea can boast of one of the most beautiful,lovely and amazing promenades of the world.I stay away from South Mumbai,but must have visited more than hundred times just to unwind ans relax.Stroll along the road and enjoy lovely breeze in the evening,have nice snacks in any of the numerous lovely joints or a nice candlelight dinner at Intercontinental or Trident and your Sunday evening remains in your memory.Amazing view of setting sun on Arabian sea,water splashing far away with numerous waves mesmerize you.
When I pass through Marine drive occasionally early in the morning I feel jealous of south Mumbai residents seeing them walking and jogging along this lovely promenade.
Marine Drive(officially Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose road) is easily accessible by train from Churchgate or CST station or by BEST bus or vehicles and the place never sleeps like most of Mumbai.When you approach Mumbai by flight at night and your plane hovers around Mumbai because of non clearance from ATC,you must look through the window to have lovely view of well lighted Marine Drive like pearls on a string-our QUEEN'S NECKLACE-proud of it.

“unsurpassed experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Every time I visit this promenade it surely consummates all i want to see about the city .The roar of the rushing waves ,ever moving traffic , flow of people on the beach and the art deco buildings lined up . The best you can have, the 'Smile' seen on the faces of people experiencing the view each and every person on the promenade is joyous and elated with the experience.

“View of the Queens' Necklace”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Excellent view of the CBD of Nariman Point on one side & the residential locality of Malabar Hill on the other which is home to India's most powerful & richest men/women. Breeze is wonderful & if you come when there is high tide, you might get drenched with water lashing out at the tripod embankments during monsoons. If you come in the mornings, you will encounter joggers' & some of the famous personalities for e.g. Anil Ambani who is seen jogging in the mornings. Infact, this is the same place where Shah Rukh Khan used to spend his time when he was a nobody!! If you are an evening-er, you would come across lots of people coming from across Mumbai & India
