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.
Marine Drive or the Queens Necklace as it is commonly known especially at night because the curve of lights looks much like a string of pearls, arcs around the seafront from Mariman Point to Malabar Hill.
Marine Drive was just a short distance from my hotel and I decided to take a walk down there early one morning. Traffic bustled along the drive and the odd jogger passed me by taking in the day before the heat built up. Most people who were out and not on their way to work, were just happily strolling, getting a little morning exercise.
Marine Drive also known as queen's Necklace because of its line of street lamps ligthing up at night.
It's a pleasant promenade between the seafront and one of Mumbai's busiest roads.
If you walk it after the sun set, you could come over the celebration of a marriage, of which you can catch the sounds and see the guests entering, what a pity that everything is going on "beyond" that door...
And somewhere in the middle of the Marine Drive Chowpatty Beach, a lively and worth visiting part of the long seashore.
Yes, thats right, Mumbai is beach front. And for being the hugh congested city that it is, I'm sue that this is a Godsend...
While the water looked a bit mucky for swimming, (for my tastes, anyway...) I'm sure that catching the evening ocean breeze down here is a welcome respite from the big city...
The "Queen's Necklace" is the main attraction for many tourists. This is because the road glitters with street lights and resembles a glowing pearl string.
Marine Drive starts from Malabar Hill and ends at the elite business centre of Nariman point.

This residential high class area is located in the southwest part of Mumbai, at the west of the Chowpatty Beach.
Here you can find some colonial bungalows that were built at the hillside by the British and some modern apartment blocks of Mumbai's high society.
Main attractions here are the Hanging Gardens, Kamala Nehru Park, from where you have nice views of the city, and the Parsi Towers of Silence, where Parsis leave their dead bodies to be picked clean by vultures (but don't go there to see this, please, is closed to visitors!).
If you're feeling energetic, a stroll down Marine Drive is possibly the best way to discover Mumbai. This is a windswept promenade, flanked by the sea and a row of art deco buildings. Looped between the concrete jungle of Nariman Point, Mumbai's Manhattan, and the leafy green slopes of Malabar hill, Marine Drive was once called the queen's Necklace, strung with glittering street lights like an enormous strand of imperious jewels. It is also one of Mumbai's busiest roads, an important artery for the heavy suburban traffic heading downtown. Cars whiz continually past the two mile stretch, past huddled lovers, children and babies in perambulators. Like other seafronts, this is where most of south Mumbai comes to breathe in some fresh air.
Just hang and sit on the wall and watch the sun set where Marine Drive circles around the bay. It's busy and peaceful. Why not it's Mumbai?
Excellent place to hang out"
Bordering the Arabian Sea, this famous road is a popular spot for watching sunsets, and is gorgeous when lit up at night
Marine Drive one of the most beautiful sites of Mumbai. It is a pleasure to site the Queens necklace- the night view of the lamp lit road described by many as the Queens Necklace.
