Beaches in Mumbai

7:18:00 AM

Mumbai is said to be the city that never sleeps because of the hustle and bustle. Although the city is populated and noisy, the beauty of the sea, the horizon, and the sunset remains magical as they are.  After hustling the whole week, all we need is to relax on the weekends. One of my favorite things to do is watch the sunsets on the beaches in Mumbai.

Here is a list of some of the beaches.

1. Juhu Beach

Juhu beach is the most famous and crowded beach in Mumbai. It is a perfect picnic spot for the kids during their summer vacation to build sand castles and jump in the waves. It is situated near the domestic and international airport and so you can spot the planes taking off.
There are also too many eatery stalls found here to complete the evening.
There are many hotels like NovotelJW marriot in the vicinity which gives epic beach views.

2. Aksa Beach:

Aksa beach is situated in Malad and can be reached either by 269 BEST bus from the Borivali route or by auto-rickshaw & obviously private vehicles.  This beach is popular among the couples, but many family and children are also seen hanging out. There are many eatery stalls on the beach. It is not safe to get in the water especially during monsoon it gets a bit dangerous as the currents are strong and the sands keeps shifting. Out of the many times we visited this place, the below picture is from the day when the horizon turned pastel ombre, just aafter the sun going down. The view was just amazing.

3. Uttan Beach

This is a secluded beach far away from the city chaos and is situated in a village called Uttan, near Bhayander. The beach is not much crowded, just few people strolling the beach and admiring the tranquil bay. There are narrow zigzag uphill roads to the beach which makes it a thrilling drive.  The beach is right in front of a pretty church. Also, there is a beautiful blue structure for the mother Mary statue which along with the sunset gives to it a picturesque appearance.

4. Chowpatty beach, Marine Drive

Marine drive is famous for its beautiful view with a C-shaped concrete promenade along the coast. During dusk, many people stride along the beautiful walkway to admire the colors of the setting sun.
It is also famous for the late night views of the Queens necklace, it is called so because of the street lights along the C-shaped pathway appearing as a necklace.

If continued strolling towards the northern end of Marine drive, lies the Chawpatty beach. Here all kind of stalls are found. The pictures below were taken on different days.

5. Dana Pani

Dhana Pani is another beach in Malad and is a little ahead of Aksa beach. This beach is less known, it is quite and is famous among the young couples. There are no eatery stalls here, but a calm and peaceful place to hangout.

6. Carter road promenade

Carter Road is not exactly a beach but a long walkway along the coast. People are seen strolling the walkway in the morning and the evenings. There are many eatery shops just opposite to the end of the walkway. There are tables and chairs to engage in chess, but eating and drinking is strictly prohibited on the promenade

Jogger's park - Joggers park is an extraordinary sea facing park. There is a mud path for running and  paved tracks for walking or jogging. There are many seats to just sit and hangout by the sea. A tiny view of Bandra worli sealink is seen from here. 

Timing - 5:30 to 9 am and 3:30 to 9 pm.
Entry Fee – 5 Rs

7. Bandstand promenade

Bandstand is famous for wedding and engagement photoshoots because of the picturesque shots of the worli Sea link at sun dawn. It is a stretch all along from carters road promenade. The place is really magical and the pictures says it all. It is one of the best places in Mumbai with a perfect sea link view. I'll share some pictures that I clicked, they are just amazing.
