Overlooking the serene backwaters of Kerala is Marine Drive, one of the most popular hangout spots in the city of Kochi. It is a picturesque promenade with a walkway of about three kilometres and is a fantastic place to spend some time leisurely, either in the company of loved ones or even some alone time. The walkway of Marine Drive is filled with people during the evening who visit the place to have the view of the sun setting over the calm sea. Unsurprisingly, this is quite a popular destination for morning and evening walks as well.
Boulevard of Marine Drive stretches from Jankar Jetty in the north to the Ernakulam Boat Jetty in the south. Important landmarks nearby include The Marine Walkway, The Rainbow Bridge, The Houseboat Bridge, The China Net Bridge and GCDA Shopping Complex. So if you are looking to discover the very essence of what Kochi is all about, Marine Drive is just the place for you. The backdrop of this place is the backwaters, with ships anchored at the harbour and that interests the tourists even more. The best thing about Marine Drive is that it is well maintained and cleaned properly and also has sitting arrangements for the visitors. The construction of the Rainbow Bridge and the Chinese Fishing Net Bridge has enhanced the beauty of the Marine Drive even more. There is also a Children's park built near the Marine Drive, which is especially delightful for your little ones.
