The tour of the city of Mumbai cannot begin or end without a visit to the Marine Drive. The Marine Drive is a busy promenade flanked by the blue waters of the Arabian Sea on one side, and an array of offices of big corporate houses on the other side. It stretches from Nariman Point to the Malabar Hills. It teems with vehicles during the morning and evening office hours, but its busy atmosphere doesn’t compromise on its seaside beauty. At the same time, it is one of the best places in Mumbai to savour a beautiful sunset. You will find pretty palm trees along the Marine Drive which makes it an ideal place to enjoy a nice leisurely walk; in the walkway adjoining the drive. Thus Marine Drive reflects both the busy and leisurely moods of Mumbai.
With the descent of twilight, this busy road gets lit with the yellow and white street lamps. From above, the view presents a fascinating appeal; it looks as if Mumbai has adorned a precious jewel of light. Not without reason Marine Drive is called the Queen’s Necklace in its night avatar.
