From where Madam Cama Road meets Marine Drive, we walked the promenade along the road to the northern end of Marine Drive, and reached Chowpatty Beach just after sunset.
We stoped a couple of times along the way to really take in the beautiful views of the skyline, boulders, sea, beach, couples, friends and families...
After sundown everyone seems to head for Marine Drive walkway to get a bit of cool air after the day's heat. There is plenty of seating along the way and it is an interesting passtime to simply observe people from here. The sea air is refreshing and the views magnificent at night.

Marine Drive is a skillfully laid-out boulevard in South Mumbai. It is actually an upturned 'C'-shaped six lane concrete road, which lengthens to 3 km along the coastline - a natural bay. This avenue connects Nariman Point with Malabar Hills. Situated over domesticated land, facing west-south-west, its coastline forms the part of the Arabian Sea.
At nights, Marine Drive looks stunning illuminated, with lights and if seen from some elevated point beside the road, it appears like a necklace with street lights resembling a string of pearls.
Marine Drive follows the sweeping curve of sea that stretches north from Nariman Point's to Chowpatty Beach, located at the foot of Malabar Hill. Mumbaikars come here to stroll along the promenade- it is a great place to escape the frenetic chaos of central Mumbai. In the evenings snack stalls sell take-away food. At sunset, as the sun sets, the lights come on- and they form what is called "Queens Necklace" around Back Bay. Watching the sun set over Nariman Point is a highlight.

Planned after a land reclamation project in the early 20th century, Marine Drive curves along the shore of the Arabian Sea from Churchgate to Chowpatty Beach and Malabar Hill. It is Bombay's famous corniche and one of the city's most exclusive addresses. Its location on the western shore of the peninsula of Bombay provides it with some breathtaking sunsets which local singles, families and lovers seem to enjoy in clement weather. The elegant boulevard is lined with palm trees and some beautiful, yet rundown, Art Déco residential buildings from the 1920s and 30s built after the land reclamation project was completed. Like many other names in Bombay/Mumbai, Marine Drive was officially replaced with a longer local name, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Road. No need to attempt to remember the latter as everyone still refers to it as Marine Drive.
Another site for jogging and enjoying refreshing breeze for me is Marine Drive. Situated on the periphery of the bustling city of Mumbai it is a cemented pathway along the sea shore which provides an opportunity to explore the city on foot. Flanked by the sea this promenade is looped between the Nariman Point and the picturesque Malabar Hill. This drive was earlier known as the Queen’s Necklace which is decked with glittering street lights. This arcade looks the best in the evening with glittering lights lamping the whole place. This arcade is joined with one of the busiest roads of the city. You can sight huddled lovers, children and families while enjoying a drive on this two mile stretch of Marine Drive. This is where we, the citizens of Mumbai stop by every evening to enjoy fresh air and relax after a day of hard work.
We took a walk along Marine Drive that takes you to Chowpatty beach. Marine Drive is built on reclaimed land. Marine Drive is lined with flaking art deco apartments. Before you get to Chowpatty beach there are a couple of small parks, good spot to sit down and relax and watch the world go by.

It was built on reclaimed land from the sea in the 1920s and is home to some great large buildings that have Art Deco influences.

While I was taking in the morning and enjoying the view of the bay, I noticed a whole lot of pigeons along the park area of the promenade. There was a guy there with a large tub of bird feed. I thought he was feeding them but he was actually selling the feed to anyone that wanted to pay him and feed the pigeons themselves.
