Marine Drive, Mumbai (Bombay)
(4.4/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web)
The city's most famous waterfront boulevard, Marine Drive follows the shoreline of Back Bay and connects the bustling business district with the rest of town. Drive or stroll down the 3.5 km (2.2 mi) road, built in 1920 on reclaimed land, to get a glimpse of the numerous Art Deco-style buildings lining the way. Some of the most expensive real estate in the country lies along this road, evidenced by the high-rises and fancy homes that crowd the shore. You'll find the promenade one of the city's most popular places to meet, socialize, and eat, with the famous Chowpatty Beach at the north end a particularly well known spot for tasty street food. Use our Mumbai (Bombay) family vacation planner to add Marine Drive and other attractions to your Mumbai (Bombay) vacation plans.

  • My guide stopped and we got out a walked along the beachfront. The view of the bay is beautiful. You can see the city across the bay. 
  • Best place to hangout in mumbai with friends with seaface view with snakes with queen neckless view at night. 
  • The visit to Marine Drive was nostalgic as it brought back memories of Bollywood movies that were filmed here. The panoramic views are gorgeous. Great for pics
