Marine Drive

Boundaries: Marine Drive (1940)

(presently Netaji Subhaschandra Bose Marg).

Sitting by the sea is a relatively recent recreational activity in Bombay. In the 1800’s, the popular forms of public pastime were chilling in the Maidan, the grassy expanse that surrounded the Fort settlement, and for the upwardly mobile, drives by the sea front in horse drawn carriages and buggies.

The monsoons make visiting Marine Drive all the more exciting.
