Nice For get the lovely pics. Good to spend quality times. You can feel that how deeper is the bay of bangal. And one more thing you can see the fantastic view of The Leela Palace also. Go with friends or gf don't go alone.

Broken bridge is a very famous place in Chennai loacted in Besant nagar. This is one of the places through which all the drains, water from city meets the sea. This place can be visited only during the day and in the evening after 5:30 it is not advisable to go in here.

A stylish place with a broken bridge facing towards the sea. It is not a great place for the families to visit, but for a good place for the couples to see the Sunset and to enjoy some snacks with talks. It is very near to Basanth Nagar Beach. It is believed to be a dangerous place in the night... More

This bridge will be familiar to anyone who watches Tamil movies. It was featured in the scene in Aaytha Ezhuthu where Madhavan throws a beer bottle in the air and breaks it with another bottle. The area is not very safe and I would not recommend going there alone or after dark. I didn't go very far on the bridge... More

I did not manage to go to the bridge as we were traveling with an infant, though it is accessible. Not much to do. But if you're the kind who likes to explore and just chill by a bridge or the beach, then this quiet and fairly secluded area would be perfect. The beach area itself is quite littered so... More

Some friends of us went there and told us the view is great. We were riding the motorcycle nearby and decided to go there. It was around 7pm and the sun just went down. The access is quiet difficult and there is noone around when it is dark. On our way back, just when we were leaving the bridge, three... More
