Officially known as Netaji Subhash Chander Bose Road, the Marine Drive is one of Mumbai’s most famous landmarks. Stretching from Nariman Point to Chowpatty Beach, this C-shaped road on the coast is a popular seaside promenade visited by locals and tourist alike for some fresh air and open space. It is a wonderful place to enjoy a leisurely evening stroll along the curved walkway and to take in the lovely view of the setting sun. Located at the foot of the Malaber Hill, the Marine Drive, from an elevated point at night time, with its numerous street lights creates the illusion of a string of pearls; which is why the street is also referred to as the Queen’s Necklace.
