  • One of the best beaches in Chennai. Plenty of restaurants and small eateries, food stalls, children play areas, temples, church etc make the place very special. A good and we cleaned beach and walkway for people and beach lovers. Sufficient car & bike parking facilities available. Sundays are car free and many fun filled healthy activities organised by many people groups. A great place to visit relax and enjoy
  • Trendy beach in Chennai, with great views. It starts from delta of Adayar which has the famous broken bridge of Chennai in North and extends till Holy Mary church in south. There are wide range of restaurants along the beach road. Simple good place to spend the eves of weekends. It hosts car free Sunday mornings too.
  • Great place to relax. Good parking spots and proximity to nearby eateries and church. Love to go for a walk on the road and on the beach. The beach can be maintained better with less or no littering.
  • The beach is good but it's not clean. But the ocean breeze here is awesome. So many shops are here to hangout. It's a very crowded place.
