Nice serene lake

You can catch a glimpse of this lake from many different points. I particularly like the view from the renaissance hotel.

Lake is very beautiful and even has proper sitting arrangement alongside the boundary. The cool breezes of the lake, whether it is day or night calms you.

It can be entered from 2 sides but the one from Aarey Colony is better. Go and sit and relax on the calm waters. A walking ledge takes you to the opposite side. There are picnic spots but avoid bus loads of locals who may make life miserable with their noise and litterring

This is one of the prominent place and may be the only place where you would find very close to nature at least during morning and evening hours in the middle of this chaotic & noisy city. The lake looks majestically beautiful during dawn & twilight hours and moreover it has a long stretch of promenade along its side which... More

Powai Lake is a good size lake within the limits of Mumbai. It is very close to the Hiranandni Complex. Is is a great place to walk around the garden area around the lake in the evening. In the monsoons this lake gets quite full. Once can see the Renaissance hotel and IIT from the shoreline. It is so pleasant... More

It is the only lake in Mumbai worth a visit. Good for couples and family. There is a park and slides for kids to enjoy. Best time is in evening to see sunset. Traffic snarls on the busy road may be annoying. It has a long trail of about 2kms good for walking and jogging.

Quite clean, and well maintained promenade . Nice breeze in the evenings. good for relaxation, though it can get a little irritating with all the young couples!

This place was earlier known as a bad site of dumping garbage but now the lake is clean upto an extent and gives you a great look because in the city of Mumbai, one can not expect this kind of site. So must go to this place at least once to experience its speciality.
