Inspiration & Ambience
Marine Drive is officially called as “Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Road” and its a 3km long, six lane concrete road in southern Mumbai which stretches towards north along the coastline, forms a natural bay. This C-shaped road connects Nariman Point to Babulnath, and is situated at the foot of Malabar Hills. Many people come here at night to stride along the beautiful walkway and embrace the stunning views of this place. The scenic beauty of the perfectly lined palm trees offers its visitors an enthralling experience. Marine Drive is also named as ‘Queen’s necklace’, because the street lights make the road look like a string of pearls, creating an illusion of a necklace, on viewing at night from an elevated point. Also, planning a long drive along this C-shaped road on a bike hired in Mumbai from Ziphop.in can make your night out thrilling and exciting.
