"The Queen's Necklace!!!" Top 5 Page for this destination QUEEN'S NECKLACE-MARINE DRIVE Tip by aadil

Favorite thing: Marine Drive (Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Road) or popularly known as the Queen's Necklace, the promenade stretches from Walkeshwar (where the Maharashtra State Governor's Bungalow is located) to Nariman Point (where all the high rise sky scrapers of Mumbai are located). It is one of the most beautiful roads in Mumbai as it is a long curved stretch and looks better at night as the glittering lights make it look like a queen's pearl necklace!!! The promenade is always full of fitness freaks, walkers and space starved couples who frequent the place in the early mornings and evenings too!!! In the monsoons it is very wet and windy here as the waves splash the sea water onto the buildings across the road as well!!! So be careful when you drive down Marine Drive in the Monsoons!!
