About Marine Drive

Facing the tranquil backwaters with a pathway of about three kilometers, Marine Drive- a picturesque promenade in the city of Cochin is a must-visit place for any tourist visiting the place. The place looks stunning at nights and is a major point of attraction for tourists and locals alike. The backdrop of the backwaters, with ships anchored at the harbor, make for a delightful sight and compels people to spend some time sitting here, soaking in the beauty of the place. The two modern structures, namely the Chinese Fishing Net Bridge and the Rainbow Bridge close to the Marine Drive further enhance the beauty of the Marine Beach. Additionally, there’s a Children’s Park, and the Subhash Chandra Bose Park, which is popular among kids and families looking for a day long getaway in the city. The place has its commercial significance because of the many commercial building including skyscrapers, shopping malls, and quality restaurants.
