Places to stay near Elliot's Beach
Reviews of Elliot's Beach • 6
It is the most happening beach in the city. Visit during the mornings to see the sunrise, the pigeons circling over the sand and to get inspired by so many locals walking, running, playing and cycling to kick start their day.Visit during the evenings if you want to try out various pocket friendly dishes from bajji to vada pav and cotton candy to waffles. Visit on a Sunday morning to enjoy the vehicle free zone, when you can enjoy the sea breeze with no pollution.
Popularly known as ‘Bessie’, Elliot's Beach is one of the cleanest beaches in Chennai. The blue waters and clear skies are guaranteed to cast a spell on you! Other attractions on the beach include the Ashtalakshmi temple and the Church of our Lady of Health.
Even though I'd be wrong in saying that it's known to only the locals, but Elliot's Beach definitely plays the poorer, less known brother of the very famous Marina Beach. And hence, it finds a place in this list. The waves are a lot more serene, the place is lot cleaner, and the people are a lot less.
Build a castle down by the sea.
