Later in the evening, I met up with a friend at Elliot's Beach. Although the beach in itself was not very pleasing, the vibe around it surely was! Fancy Restaurants and glittery shops gave it a very lively atmosphereTime to go homeAlthough Chennai was not on my mind, I was glad that I could make time for it. But at the same time, I was kicking myself for not having another day to visit Kanchipuram and Mahabalipuram.This was my first solo trip ever, and surely it was a success!
12. Elliots BeachYou can spend the evening at Marina Beach also. But my favorite beach in Chennai is Elliots Beach also known as Besant Nagar Beach.
Bessy BeachNothing can hold a light to Elliot’s Beach or Bessy Beach (as locals fondly call it) in Besant Nagar with it’s small cafes on one side, a church on the other and Karl Schmidt memorial standing royally in between, is a spectacular spot to hangout during the evenings. The farthermost corner is also home to a privately-owned open theatre ‘Spaces’ which showcases arts and culture events from around the country.
My friends and I love to just go chill at Bessie, a perfect hang out spot for young people. Always something to do, and a place to grab a bite, Bessie does not disappoint! The most happening time to come is towards the evening, where the sun's not beating down as hard.
