Right from Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi to Lage Raho Munna Bhai, Marine Drive has been immortalised by the Hindi cinema industry and why not?! A sheer spectacle of beauty, driving along this treasured pathway at night can give you the feel of travelling across foreign locations, such as Hong Kong or Singapore. The dazzling lights that illuminate the Marine Drive during the night justify the moniker attached to it- Queen's Necklace. Let's explore the details of this spectacular coastal promenade which attracts tourists from all over the world!

This curvy coastline shielded by palm trees, runs along the southern coast of Mumbai, starting at Nariman Point and ending at Girgaum Chowpatty. Encapsulating a part of the Arabian Sea, Marine Drive makes for a place where one can enjoy a leisurely stroll by the sea while feasting their eyes on the vibrant views of the locale.
The precinct of Queen's Necklace is a part of Victorian Gothic and Art Deco Ensembles of Mumbai, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Although renamed as the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Road, this easily identifiable landmark is still popular among tourists with its age-old name- Marine Drive.
The arresting view of Queen's Necklace will herald the philosopher and poet in you to compose sonnets, much like the Shakesperean heroes in love!
