“Nice and clean beach”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

A nice and clean beach in Besant Nagar. Crowd is much better than Marina beach and there are some hip eateries in the vicinity. Nice for a relaxing beachside walk or a romantic evening by the sea.

“Delight to escape the madness”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Chennai has some crazy traffic, but the beach promises you a good get away from it. Decent street food ranging from Roasted Corn cob to boiled groundnuts (sundal in Tamil). The best time to visit would be in the morning for a long walk along the shore. Beware of beggars and fake astrologers who keep annoying you. Lot of eating joints to pick from but mostly are open in the evenings.

“good beach in chennai”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Elliot's Beach is one of the beautifel and cleanest beaches in the city of Chennai . it is popularly known as "Besant Nagar Beach"The beach also has found importance with families, who now no longer travel to the famous Marina Beach. There are many restaurants and very good parking near the beach.The Ashtalakshmi Temple is around 20 years old and has modern style architecture. It is dedicated to Goddess Lakshmi and appears different from the rest of the Temples in South India. On the other hand, Velanganni Church is more of a pilgrim place for the Christian

“Good Beach but maintained badly”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is one of the lovely beach front of Chennai with motor-able road on the coast. But with so many make shift eateries and irresponsible beach goers and poor maintenance, the beach is losing the old world charm
