Chowpatty is one of Mumbai`s most famous beaches, situated at the northern end of Marine Drive this beach is both lively and popular with locals and tourists of all ages.

Although people can regularly be seen swimming and sunbathing the main draw of this beach is the food and entertainment that can be found here both during day and at night when the atmosphere is transformed into that of a carnival.

Attractions here include food kiosks, ferry rides, balloon sellers, pony rides, wayside astrologers, monkey shows, self -styled gymnasts who will demonstrate amazing yogic postures for a small fee, Bhelpuri shops offering Mumbai`s most popular snack: crisp puffed rice and semolina doused in pungent chutneys, all scooped up with a flat, fried puri, shooting galleries, snake charmers, professional masseurs, contortionists and much more.
