Relaxing walk by the sea in the evening with cool breeze. Good seating areas by the sea. A bunch of streetside vendors and a few shops and small bridges. Had an excellent sunset view.

People loot money for family boating, still it's worth boating here, i paid 1500 for our family of 4 for an individual boat to take us around 5 points and duration is 1 hour, beyond that time is boring unless you love to watch water.

Marine Drive walk along the calm and cool waters of Lake Vembanad, The long in Kerala. Not only popular amongst the locals but also the tourists. It's beautiful overlooking FortbKochi where many historical buildings are there, including the Jewish Synagogue. Early morning walk to see the sun rise and evening walk to experience the sun set. Many Restaurants and shopping outlets are available. Very near to the newly opened Marine Inn Hotel and the first and the oldest Sealord Hotel.
We. Enjoyed walks and stay here.

Marine drive is a traffic artery parallel to the river in Ernakulam. It is lined with hotels, banks, shopping centers and modern residential highrises at least at parts. It has a big city feel about it, but is not exachtly appealing. The Marine drive walkway along the river is.

Officially the walkway is called Abdul Kalam marg and starts near Bolgatty bridge in the north to end at the jetty near Subhash park further south. It is 2.3 km in length, right beside the waterfront. Often there is a breeze and the views over the estuary are great. The north part is still pretty much exposed to the sun, but further towards downtown Ernakulam there are shaderich trees. Small streams that flow into the estuary are bridged.

There are many options to join a boat trip or to rent a private boat. I just took the 6 Rupees ferry back to Fort Kochi.

Marine Drive is a must do when visiting Cochin.
Vibrant and plenty to do and see. Give yourself plenty of time to explore.
Take a boat trip. You will not be disappointed

We were a family of 4 and we visited on 21 January 2023 . We hired a private jet boat for 4 people for 1 hr and with a minimal amount of money he charged us . Our driver / cum guide was excellent as he explained to us everything about ( Vypeen island , bolgotty island and etc ) .

Just take a stroll for an hour. There are many shops on the way for purchase and eateries. Many boat services are available which can be done for one hour. They take you through a small round which is very much enjoyable.

Best to visit during evenings.

A nice place to take a walk alongside especially during the evenings. There are many cruise and boating options also available for leisure activities. Ferry option is also available in case you want to go from one island to another.

A very popular spot in the city dotting the vast sea shore, has a long walkway along the waters, lined with multiple eating options on one side. The rainbow bridge is an added attraction for the visitors here. The place is heavily crowded on holidays and also has many boat operators thronging the walkway offering rides in the sea with many options including the sun set fare with dinner and music. Overall, the place is a very busy and popular spot definitely worth a visit while in kochi.
