Visited this place so many times as Edward Elliot's Beach, simply called as Elliot's Beach and popularly known as Besant Nagar Beach or the Bessie, is a natural urban beach located in the Besant Nagar neighbourhood of Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. The Greater Chennai Corporation has ranked Besant Nagar beach as the cleanest among the seven beaches in the city. The other six beaches in the southern metropolis are Marina, Thiruvanmiyur, Tiruvottiyur, Palavakkam, Neelankarai, and Akkarai. This beach is less crowded than the Marina beach and personally I prefer going to this beach that has a typical beach atmosphere with people on the beach, a few vendors and one can sit there and enjoy the atmosphere of this place that typically has its own identity.
