Girgaon Chowpatty, Mumbai Reviews
I visited Mumbai in August 2017. I had heard a lot about this place. I along with my two friends went there around 10am. That time place was more like empty. Youngsters were practicing there cricket skills. Coach was guiding them. Other than that 5 or 6 people were there. At the first sight itself you'll find the beach not so clean. I along with my friends put off our shoes and went into the shallow water. Water was really really polluted, it was really like you have entered into an oily scum. I suddenly returned outside of the water. Not a good idea to get a bath into sea water it may be very harmful to the skin. One of my friend took a quick dip into the water out of his curiosity. He got his skin infected. So my experience was not very much good about this place but please notice it was a late morning time. I really believe evening would be awesome as long as you are not going to get yourself drench into the dirty seawater, if you are not in a hurry and spend time at the beach with some of your good friends.
Good place to relax.. Beach is not clean.. over all okey. Many other site settings are in nearby locations. All transportation mode is available to teach the place. Connectivity with road, train are the best. Food stalls are not hygienic and test is average. But nearby (at walking distance) people can go to many good restaurants. Restroom is available at a walkable distance. Good if you schedule 1 hour time for the spot.
Nice place to hangout. Too crowded during weekends and holidays though. But airy and beautiful. Especially during evenings. Can be chilly too in the winter, yet enjoyable.
Nice place to visit with family and couple. Nice scene at evening time. Always take your mate and water botel with you. Some times it is not available on chawpati
Good weather and surrounding people Neat and clean place beach, But the water is not that much good its dard Brown colour, There stall are available too to eat food and other snacks too, Near by hotels are also there. Parking is also available but its pay and park. You can come from many ways by taxi bus car or by any private cab too.. Good place if you visited during evening its awesome place during that time
