Girgaon Chowpatty - Review
Chowpatty Beach is very popular in Mumbai due to its awesome location. The beach is known for being a sunset viewing spot of course. But the real attraction of the beach is the scores of delicious food you get there. Absolutely mouth-watering street food is available on the beach. Delicacies like like Paav Bhaji, the Chaats and the spicy rolls are a must try. The famous Bombay street food is popular because of this beach. Do not miss it!
The best time to visit this place and also the busiest time is the evening. Magicians doing tricks on the beach attract many people. The beach also provides rides of horse and camels.

Girgaon Chowpatty, Mumbai Reviews
good place to chill out at the beach with your family and friends. Go early in the morning for enjoying fresh air and water and in the evening to witness sunset It's very beautiful when you see, but the water is polluted. Although there are a lot of seashells on the sand. You can actually see a band of shells. There is fresh air
A good place to relax your mind... But it's worth to visit the place in the evening... Especially during the sunset time... Only bad thing about this place is that there's garbage thrown around at some places.... But this issue is also been taken care of to some extent.... Do visit once...
"A good place to chill out at the beach with your family and friends. Go early in the morning for enjoying fresh air and coconut water and in the evening to witness sunset and cheap and delicious street food and Golan! It is very crowded on weekends so go accordingly".
It’s a nice place for family or couple or sports enthusiasts to be round it would give you cold breeze and sound or sea waves with a pleasant marine drive view. Don’t swim in water as it seems most contaminated.
It's very beautiful when you see, but the water is polluted. Although there are a lot of seashells on the sand. You can actually see a band of shells. There is fresh air and just beside it is the Marine drive also known as Queens necklace. So you can see a nice skyline from there. I would suggest not to go in the water as it's not clean and hygienic. But it is relaxing to sit on the sand and enjoy. Also you can see few people playing sports over there. There is variety of food available there. There is even a restroom.
