THE SUNSET POINT OF MUMBAI: MARINE DRIVE

The heart and soul of Bombay is in this mesmerizing landmark of the city, Marine Drive which has given a piece of its own to every person who’s been there. Commonly known as the Queen’s necklace is a three-kilometre sea-facing promenade that begins at Nariman Point and goes on to Babulnath. With an uninterrupted view of Arathe bian sea, Marine Drive is undoubtedly the most beautiful place to sit by and talk over sunsets and chai.

Not only will you come across some of the most amazing eateries around here but also can walk and jog along this coastline. What better way to lose weight and remain fit than this?
