Marine Drive

Sunset over Marine Drive
 
Laid out over a 100 years ago, Marine Drive is an iconic and elegant sea-side promenade curving along the coast of southern Mumbai, linking the tony Walkeshwar hill, from where this photo is taken, to the commercial hub of Nariman Point, with its towering office blocks. En route, it is lined with one of the finest collections of art deco buildings on the planet, much of them ranking among the most prized pieces of real estate in the city (and by extension, the world). The promenade itself is phenomenally popular with locals and visitors alike, for whom walking along and sitting by the sea is a quintessential Mumbai experience.
