Marine Lines

One of the most happening places of Mumbai, this is where the locales and tourists come to enjoy the cool sea breeze during the evenings. Recently named as the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Road, this place is also given the name of Queen's Necklace due to the bright lights that are put on in a line after the sun sets. The Chhoupatty Beach is at the very end of the Marine Drive. This drive was set up in the the 1920- 1930's and is a very busy place with festivals all round the year. Starting from the Hindu Thread ceremonies, Nariyal Purnima and the Ganesh Chaturthi immersions all take place here. there are also stalls selling bhel puri, batata and sev puri, kulfi and paan around the beach area.
Addy's travelogue
We started our Day 2 with a Breakfast at Kyani & co. The food here is just amazing and this is one of Mumbai's oldest surviving Irani Cafe. We tried their Kheema Pav, Bun Muska, Chicken Patties, Mutton Chops, Irani chai and some Caramel custard which was yummy ( I know thats a lot of food ). After which we left to Colaba causway for some more street shopping. This place has amazing junk jewelry, bags and cloths etc, at a very affordable price- Must visit. As we couldn't get enough of Cafe Modegar, we went back there and had our lunch and chilled there for sometime. Even when we were literally stuffed with the heavy breakfast and lunch we wanted to eat the famous Vadapav of Mumbai. How can one miss eating Vadapav in Mumbai, If you love vada pav, try it in any of the outlets which are opposite to colleges. Also, they have something called Pajjiya Pav, I liked it better than Vada Pav. And yes after which we headed back to the airport and reached Bangalore by 10:30 Pm. It was a short but an amazing weekend, where we covered most of Mumbai in just two days.
For the very first time, India witnessed the Grand Prix of the Seas. The Nexa P1 Powerboat, which was held at Marine Drive from March 3 to 5.The debut season of the Powerboat Grand Prix got a phoenominal response from the crowd.The inaugural Nexa P1 Powerboat championship concluded with the Baleno Booster Jets taking top honours. In second were the Llyod Dolphin.

Marine Lines is a huge curve ending on Nariman Point. Here people are seen walking, talking and cosing around. You ought to get a chance to eat the raw mango and meet many acquaintances just having the time by themselves being in the crowd of the city yet away from it. This is the only good thing which Delhi lacks as a city - A place providing solace to everyone who passes through it.
