Away from the industrial pollution and the chaotic city life, Marve Beach is situated in Malad, in the western suburbs of Mumbai. Due to the strong tides and currents, it is generally not recommended to swim in the sea waters or even to step aside post evening hours. Lined by cashew nut trees and elite villas, the beach is a charming spot to spend some quiet time with your loved ones. Mostly frequented by couples owing to the romantic appeal and idyllic setting, the beach is also visited by college troupes and families occasionally.
Inhabited by Catholic natives of Mumbai, Marve Beach will remind you of the beaches in Goa because of the attires and the mannerisms of the locals. To add to the beauty, the beach houses a tiny ancient Portuguese church which is popular amongst the tourists. The beach also facilitates ferry rides every 5 - 10 minutes from here to Manori beach. The Indian Naval Base - INS Hamla is also located in the vicinity and you can spot jawans from the same undergoing training on the beach at wee hours.
