Trip Planner: Asia / India / Tamil Nadu / Chennai District / Chennai / Marina Beach
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. Plan to see Marina Beach and other attractions that appeal to you using our Chennai route maker tool.

On a very large beach, I walked 5 minutes to reach the sea surface for the first time across the sandy beach.When I went, the waves were higher than the other beaches. Water may not be very clean.

The biggest n most famous beach in Chennai. Early morning sunrise is really beautiful n calm. Perfect place for morning walk for the neighbours. At the evening time it has a lot of stalls for street food, fish, crab etc. water is really clean.
So neat and clean, pleasant early morning visit experience was amazing. Loved sun rise, walk on pathway and beach soil. People come to walk here, public toilet and local transportation facilities available nearby. In morning or evening People can come with family and friends to spend and enjoy the lovely time here.
