The walk will take you to the popular Chowpatty Beach to the north and to the upscale area of ​​Walkeshwar. The route is dotted with many Art Deco-style buildings but also more luxurious hotels. Very lively, Marine Drive regularly hosts sporting, cultural, and religious events, as well as fairs. It is at Chowpatty Beach that the faithful come to immerse images and statues of Ganesh, the god with the elephant head, during the celebrations of Ganesh Chaturthi.

The beach is very popular on Sundays: Indians come with their families to enjoy its fair attractions and savour local specialties like bhel puri, puffed rice and flavoured vegetables spiced with sauces made with tangy tamarind extract.
