The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Besant Nagar
Named after the noted lady theosophist Annie Besant, Besant Nagar is one of the most preferred areas to reside in Chennai due to the presence of the beach. The extremely calm and serene area with its colonial hangover is studded with sea- facing homes owned by the affluent families and has a string of restaurants, cafes, shops and boutiques around it. Home to Elliot’s Beach, The Theosophical Society and Kalakshetra, the world famous dance school along with beautiful temples and churches, this is where Chennai loves to chill. The confluence of best of nature, art and history within the greenest parts of the city limits is evident in the culture of this neighbourhood, which makes it one of the most favourite hangout zones for all the locals.

The weather was amazing when i visited the beach, the beach has a lot of eateries around it, be it local or well established brands, the beach in itself isn't very clean, but better than many that i have seen
Do visit in the evenings or early morning!

It is one of the more cleaner beaches in Chennai. The stalls are on the beach spreading dirt and waste produced is spread on the beach. The people throw the paper wrappers etc on the pavements, roads inspite of dustbins placed for the same.
Most of the cafes in and around the beach are very small.

Talking about Besant Nagar Beach it is the chennai biggest and crowded beach of the state. The beach is very good and every year people from country and outside tourist comes to this beach to have fun with family and friends. The travel convince to the beach is very good and once can easily reach there. The accommodation and hotel and also present and nearby to the beach area and once can easily find a hotel in their budget. The local sightseeing is done with the help of local guides and individuals. Talking about the safety the safety measures are quite good developed at that area.

The beach has everything to spend time with your friends and family. I visited this beach at mornings and evenings also. I felt that the ambience at beach surroundings is more lively in evenings than mornings. Good place to spend time and explore the local feeling

Pleasant and neat place for families and kids. This location is always crowded in the evening and weekends. Lots of food options as well starting from street food to branded food shops. Evening time is the best time for all to enjoy this place.

Pleasent at night times on full moonday with good view where the waves were too harsh that we cant getin to. In the evening,it is good to chill yourself with some vendors around with seafood,entertainment games,horse ride,... it is not much crowded..that is the best part for the peace lovers
