Besant Nagar Beach - Review
Perfect to escape the hysteria of the city, Besant’ Nagar’s Elliot beach is one of the most refreshing beaches of the city. No short of any happening chowpatti, you will find lots of recreation activities here. From kids play areas including a Ferris wheel, some lip-smacking street food and lots of fresh flower selling vendors this beach is a lot of fun in many ways.
In the evenings, you will find a lot of youngsters coming to the promenade that is lined with popular eateries, to hang out. Geographically, its importance lies in the fact that it is the Marina Beach’s end point. The beach derives its name from the once Governor of Madras, Edward Elliot. A visit to the Velankanni Church post a morning walk here can guarantee a blissful day ahead! Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Chennai itinerary 1 day.

Besant Nagar Beach, Chennai Reviews
Best beach in Chennai. Although not accessible by train, it is accessible by car or auto. The place has one of the best eateries in Chennai. The beach is clean and it is best if you visit in the evening. It also has small shacks where you get tasty food at low prices. You must try the Spring Potato at the beach and the raw mangoes. There are also fish fry and bhajji stalls where you will get squid fry as well !! Lovely place you'll fall in love with it ! It is a huge beach so if you want you can also have a small picnic there.
There are two major beaches in Chennai. Marina - too much people results in too much garbage. Poorly maintained Besant Nagar beach - much cleaner and less crowded compared to marina. You can't get enough of the street food sold there. Fried corn is a must try. One great combo - beach and fried corn. Don't miss the squid fry if you love non veg. Food is not very hygienic. Ensure you eat what is served hot and don't take anything which has cold water.
The place is so beautiful in the early morning and the evening. You can breathe the fresh air and it's a good place to visit to take a break from the chaos around the city and come and sit in the beach with the waves hitting your legs. In the evening you get a variety of food around that place. Perfect place to explore street food. I highly recommend this place to all. 🌊🌊
A nice beach for morning walk... Fresh air... We went for a CSR on beach cleaning activity... A good 2km walking platform is available.. Additionally the road is also blocked during early morning on weekends to accommodate more walking enthusiasts... If you are interested in photography, a good place where u can shoot, sunrise, pigeons..etc... In the morning
Very nice beach. Good place to spend evening with friends or family. Not that much rush will be there even in the weekend. Food items like fried potato are the famous snacks available here. Few Tamil and Malayalam movies shot here.
