Marine Drive, Kochi (Cochin)

3.7
#2 of 18 in Parks in Kochi (Cochin)
Nature / Park
Also known as Queen's Necklace, Marine Drive is a popular boulevard running along the coast, and home to many celebrities. The busy strip gained its nickname due to the hundreds of lights illuminating the road at night. Palm trees line the promenade, along with restaurants, beaches, shops, hotels, and office buildings. Visit to stroll the walkway and watch the sunset, then grab a drink by the water. For a more wallet-friendly dining option, look for Chowpatty Beach with its stalls selling fast food and snacks.

  • Always refreshing to have a long walk on the lake side holding your partners hand. A joggers paradise  more »
  • Good evening walk along the waters with ships yonder. Well lighted shopping centres and eat outs with special ice cream parlours. What else does one want?  more »
  • I liked this place just because of the cheap ferry rides it offer. Also in the night you can sit here and watch ship lights from a distant. A good place to visit in Kochi.  more »

  • Nice place to spend time. Crowd is there at evenings. We can take boat rides there. Nice Architectured bridge is there by GCDA (Greater Cochin Development Authority). Many trees there to take rest and nice walkways.
  • Used to be good. But now poorly maintained. Still it's worth spending the evenings.
  • The place used to well maintained but now not taken care properly
  • There is boat ride under 100 rupees . Nice have a morning jogging or evening walks.
  • Its a good place for evening walk, but now the place has become much more crowded

Where to stay in Kochi (Cochin)

Kochi offers abundant hospitality options, including a dense collection of international five-star hotels. Travelers on a budget can explore the selection of modest but impeccable homestays and guesthouses in the quieter neighborhoods just outside the central tourist area of Fort Cochin; these make great places to meet local hosts and fellow travelers. If you can spend a bit more, a number of boutique hotels in converted European-style mansions offer individual charm, and eco-villages and resort or retreat establishments outside the city center come with full wellness, spa, and culinary packages.
