Marine Drive Chowpatty
Marine Drive Chowpatty (Local Stn. Marine Lines or Charni Rd) is the city's most famous beach. Situated at one end of Marine Drive, Bombay's most famous promenade. This is not a place to sunbathe, however. Go here to watch the crowds enjoying themselves and have Bhel puri, as a moderately famous Hindi song asks you to. Note that Chowpatty in Marathi means "beach". So you may hear people referring to other beaches suffixed with Chowpatty. (For example, "Juhu Chowpatty"). But if they say "Chowpatty" without qualification, they are referring to this place.
