    This beach is not much during daytime, but when the afternoon comes toward an end, this beach starts to come lively. People from all over Mumbai gather here and there are all kinds of street vendors to buy snacks and ice-cream from.
    We happened to be there during the Ganesh Chaturthi festival, on which people carry images of Ganesh into the sea. This festival always takes place in August/September.

    Apart from Juhu in the suburbs, Chowpatty is Mumbai's most famous beach. During the day, it is the hangout of the happily unemployed who snooze under the shade of its stunted trees. But in the evening the atmosphere is more like a carnival: kids screaming on Ferris wheels or taking pony rides, wayside astrologers making a quick buck, monkey shows, and even the odd self -styled gymnast who will demonstrate amazing yogic postures for a small fee. At one end is a row of bhelpuri shops hawking Mumbai's most popular snack: crisp puffed rice and semolina doused in pungent chutneys, all scooped up with a flat, fried puri. You might even catch a film shoot or a street play. In short, for most tourists Chowpatty is where the action is.

    A great walk along the promenade in Mumbai with the breeze from Cowpatti beach. The place becomes alive later in the day with a multitude of vendors but a great place for a walk in the warm weather
