It is a pleasant experience when I visit Marina Beach with my younger daughter , wife and mother in law. It was morning 9. But beach site was very hot and humid. AS you know Marina Beach is one of the widest and longest beach hence to reach near water we have to walk through sand.
To avoid walking we hire two horse for me and my daughter and it was a very pleasant experience. Marina beach is one of the first things that comes to mind when one thinks of Chennai. It's a large and beautiful beach with street food and other vendors organised in distinct areas.
The water is usually great; depends on the tide. The biggest problem is keeping it clean; which the community is making great strides in doing.
The main concern is glass pieces in the sand mainly from broken bottles of alcohol ; on our most recent visit we picked up close to 30 small and large glass pieces from the sand! Not the best place to run barefoot then! Overall, it always makes a great evening out. If it's the weekend, parking can be pretty tricky as it's very very crowded.
The beach is very long and beautiful. One can spend lot a of time here enjoying the ocean view or simply mesmerizing the flow of waves and chill breezes. As the beach is long its seems less crowded. One can find a place to sit in solace and enjoy some chats or snacks. Its a must visit place for beach lovers. The world's largest Beach is marina Beach extending over a few kilometers far from north Chennai to South.. The essence of a beach is truly felt here..
The beach is approx metres from the road and the walk up to the beach tires you initially.. It is a treat to watch the rides and people enjoying.. I for one enjoyed a good ride and came back fresh in my childhood memories..
There are good eats like pakodas variety of them , fish caring in types and size , a good chance to take snap with your favourite movie star and other activities too. The gushing waves make your day complete..
It looks as if the entire world has decended to feel the waters of Marina. One can see the shops anchored at a distance in the deep sea.. The kids as well the elders too would love it who may not have seen a ship yet. And when done cross over to the road side and there a good restaurants at a distance of a km and you have your completed truly contended.
Went to area near city center. Very smelly. Nothing much to do. Sunday very crowded. Would not visit again. The Marina Beach is a must see place in Chennai. You can enjoy the beautiful sunrise and a leisurely walk in the morning. In the evening it becomes crowded but you can still enjoy snacks from the temporary stalls.
