Besant Nagar Beach is also called as Elliots Beach This Beach is the end point of Marina Beach of Chennai and it has Velankanni Church and Astalakshmi Temple along with the shore.

Normally childrens are taught Skating in the Evening Hours by private people. This Beach is surrounded by Parsh Residents in the sea side and you can see even local low class family houses near the shores.

This beach is most happening place in the chennai one should visit and find all cultures moving in and around the shores. You can see lots of families goes for walking, Spend their time having Peanuts, the passage of the Shore area is surrounded by small hawkers to make the public to have snacks during leisure time.

Good location but dirty.. there were lots of food stalls around with lots of garbage stead around, which makes the beech bit filthy...there should be a routine cleaning of the beech by the municipal authorities to make it more tourist attraction point...
