Marina Beach, Chennai

3.4
#1 of 92 in Outdoors in Tamil Nadu
Take a walk along Marina Beach, the world’s second longest natural urban beach. The sandy shore stretches for 13 km (8.1 mi), although strong undercurrents create conditions too dangerous for swimming. Browse the numerous shops and stalls that line the popular beach, have a picnic in the sand, or splash around in one of the two swimming pools. Strolling along the seaside promenade, you can admire an array of statues and monuments, many of which depict local leaders, writers, activists, and other significant people from the country’s past.

  • A must visit in chennai for hanging out, eating street food. Water is not that clean, if you a beach lover then Besant nagar, Kovalam or Thiruvanmayur beaches will be better. For food lovers there...  more »
  • This is a beautiful long beach which unfortunately suffers from needing a good clean up. If you want to see the fishing boats and all the fish sellers it’s worth the trip.  more »

  • Beach is crowded after 6 in evening, climate is good but the maintenance needs to be taken care of. One time visit if you are a tourist, the beach has nothing special to offer , similar to other beaches . Different kinds of food items are available transportation is pretty decent but not too much available.
