    Unique cultural experience with good food
    Excellent dosa and lassi from one of the stalls (near the beach of the left side). Brilliant atmosphere which you can absorb along the beach watching families eat their dinner or dip into the water. And the floodlights on the beach are a unique touch. It would be an interesting idea for Manly or Bondi beach in Sydney, although I am sure almost every local would object.

    Great place to try the local street food
    There is a big selection of street food. Stands with either sweet or savory dishes can be found right and left. The vendors are rather helpful and always eager to get you something you may like. Here you can easily communicate in English and accommodate your order to your liking. As a beach lover, I have to say the beach is , sadly, extremely dirty so I didn't go near the water.

    Nice beach located near Marine Drive. Not stunning, but pleasant.
    I came with a local. Nice beach. Has lovely views. Not stunning but pleasant. Cool atmosphere. There is an area near the front as you enter where you can purchase snacks. Could be cleaner. Makes a nice walk. Located right near Marine Drive. Attracts a lot of local families. Not too busy on a Saturday morning.

    Good place to picnic
    Good place to enjoy your evening in the city. You will get lot of options for local food, mats to sit on sand. People come with family so no security concerns. Not so good to swim. No water activities. But still enjoy in water.

    One of the most famous beaches in Mumbai
    Had been to this public sandy beach in Girgaon a few weeks ago. This beach is a popular tourist attraction. This beach is visited by locals as well as tourists. It gets crowded during the weekends and public holidays. This beach has street food stalls in one corner selling Bhel Puri, Golas, Chowmein etc. This beach offers sunset views and a viewing deck in one end. It is famous for its Ganesh Visarjan. There are small amusement rides for children. However, it is filthy and dirty due to tourists littering on the sands. Had enjoyed strolling on the beach and the cool breeze. This beach is an ideal place for families, couples as well as friends. It is a must visit and should not be missed.

    Can be skipped.
    It's one of the most popular beaches of Mumbai. It's a very touristy place popular with locals and tourists alike. The place has dozens of eateries serving local and Indian cuisine. The beach and sea is pretty dirty. You can rent mat for ₹30 an. hour for a mat to spread over the beach and enjoy the site. One of those places you can skip and won't miss anything.

There is no civic sense. The beach is littered with waste objects. Nightmare for beach lovers. Failed to understand why it is not maintained when trip to Mumbai city is incomplete without visiting Chowpatti beach. Mumbai is gifted with so many braches but, alas! most of them poorly maintained...

I first came across if on the way from the airport to my accommodation in Colaba. The beach was quite nice with white sand and it looked quite large. I made it there after walking along Marine Drive.
One end of the beach had stalls for food and drinks. It was quite busy and lit up. There are also plenty of other restaurant lining the road near the beach. I was near the main entrance by the intersection. There were a few statues along the roadway which were interesting, particularly the ones within a garden.
The beach itself was huge. I was there at night and it was more packed compared to the morning when driving through. There were so many people just enjoying the beach area.
There was a bit of rubbish along the water line though and there weren't many people in the water, presumably because it was night time and "cold". I was tempted to take photos while on the beach but there was a sign out front saying not to. The view looking towards the city was quite nice from the beach.
It was a nice place to look around and I would guess feels different between day and night.
