ABOUT Marine Drive
One of the most talked about places in Mumbai, Marine drive is really a promenade hugging the coast with its curve set in utter perfection from Nariman Point to Chowpatty Beach, at the foot of Malabar hills. A walk along Marine drive as the evening melts into night and the sun dives beyond the Arabian Sea is must to have on your itinerary of things to do in Mumbai-an experience without which you cannot truly say you have been to and experienced Mumbai in its element.

As you eye the horizon, watching the sun sink, while the waves crash against the beautiful huge sea rocks, you can witness before your very eyes how the streets lights of Back Bay transform Marine drive into a length of flickering lights that appear as a choker of twinkling jewels fit for a Queen; hence the name, Queen’s Necklace.

Marine drive in Mumbai is a 4.3 Km long boulevard in the southern part of the island city forming a shape of "C". It stretches from Nariman Point to Malabar Hills, its a natural bay reclaimed from the sea. This goes almost all of the materialistic information's one need about the place but whats still unsaid is the beautiful promenade which runs along the road on the sea side and this promenade is the host to a number of activity 24 by 7. Surely there wont be a single day when there wont be a crowd and whatever time let it be. Early in the morning from the Nariman Point end of the stretch the city's skyline resembles to what we see of Newyork in the pictures and in the evening this place gives the best sight of sunset when the sun sets in the Arabian sea, and as the hue of setting sun fades away comes the "queens necklace" in existence. Yes i am talking about a necklace which is formed by the street lights. This stretch has some of the land mark buildings of the city like Air India building, Bombay Gymkhana to name a few and some hotels and restaurants have utilized this naturally beautiful place to the best of their interest like there can be nothing better than sitting in the cafeteria of Marine plaza and watching the sun set over the Horizon and sipping on your cup of choice(this is my favourite spot and i sip on a hard cup of freshly brewed coffee). On the promenade one can just sit over the concrete fence and listen to the never ending and ever delighting sound of the sea, and enjoy the tea coffee and other savories being sold by street hawkers, if one goes there at night then trying the " muska bun" becomes a must. One can just spend the entire day over there it has got a plethora of activities to be witnessed and is always a delight choice for photo enthusiast, kids and last but not the least of many love birds of the city who after a long day comes over to share some quality time and soak in the unending energy from sea. Now lets move towards the chowpatty which is a fair arena more than a beach. Chowpatty is an identity of this city, one gets to taste all kind of food here junk foods are something that attracts a lots of tourist. During monsoon the stretch near Nariman Point becomes so livid with the sea splashing occasion splashes till the road.To sum up i would say that having seen many promenades in this country have never seen such a lively and socially mixed up one till now, to feel the life in this super fast paced metro city one got to spend a day here, an entire day round the clock.
