A city built on islands, Mumbai has no shortage of beaches. The most popular among them is Girgaum Chowpatty, a stretch of beach that extends along Marine Drive near Charni Road Railway Station. The only sand beach area in South Mumbai offers a unique culinary experience for both the tourists as well as the locals. A stretch of the Chowpatty beach is populated by a long line of fast food stalls serving excellent Pav Bhaji (spicy mashed potatoes and bread), Vada Pav (potato cutlets in bread) and kulfi (regional ice-cream). Girgaum Chowpatty however truly comes to life at sunset, with its masseurs, transvestites, balloon-sellers, gamblers, fortune-tellers, magicians, ferris wheels and shooting galleries.
Girgaum Chowpatty captures the spirit and essence of Mumbai. If you haven't spent an evening on Chowpatty and then strolled down to the end of Marine Drive enjoying the refreshing sea breeze, you've missed the best part of Mumbai.
You must sample the street-food at the Chowpatty - the bhel, the pav bhaji and the pani puri. And then don't forget to cross the marine drive and savor the uniquely delectable Green Chilli Ice Cream at Bachelor's opposite the Chowpatty.
The Girgaum Chowpatty is a fun place always bustling with crowds and energy and you'll enjoy your time here.
