About
This expansive beach is Chennai's most famous tourist attraction, though the undercurrent is too strong for all but the strongest swimmers. Look out for the "Kannagi" statue on Marina Beach, which tells the story of the legendary character from a South Indian epic.

Best place to hang out with friends and family. It's awesome place to visit in Chennai because its India biggest beach best time to visit in sunrise or in time of sunset but need more cleanliness as its tourist place and its belongs to history of India.

Awesome beach

One of the biggest beaches I have ever been. Avoid weekdays for overcrowding.
Best time to visit will ne early mornings or seeing the sunset. During summers it gets hot - do carry water bottles which will be very handy.

Best breeze in the world .A place for relaxation and enjoy ment.The eateries are great. Smiling faces of the vendors and the mornings sun shine over the once British colonial building take you back in time.

A one time visit.

Marina beach like they say, is the pride of Chennai being the longest beach in Asia.

The Beach (water front) is a long walk from the parking area, and the approach is not a very clean and pleasant walk.

They could do with a lot of cleaning up to make it more pleasant for the visitor.

The Water front is nice and approachable.
