Marine Drive, Kochi (Cochin)

(3.2/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.
