Top ways to experience Besant Nagar Beach
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 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

Decent beach - good to hang around with family
Jan 2020
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

Beautiful but rough
Feb 2020 • Solo
The beach is beautiful but it tends to be pretty rough for the most part. There is also the Shrine to our Lady of Health were people cone from mikes around to pay homage. It is a Roman Catholic Church but people from all denominations visit it.

One of the cleanest
Feb 2020 • Family
That was my first reaction. The beach is definitely one of the cleanest beaches I've seen. There is sufficient parking available for 2 and 4 wheelers. The eateries are located on 2 ends of the beach which makes it easier to maintain the cleanliness. There are bins located everywhere so that one does not litter. Beware of hawkers who tend to force you to buy things from them.
The only downside is that there is no public restroom nearby which makes it difficult incase there's an emergency with the child.
