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.
