“Beach Beach” ~ Chowpathy Beach

Sunset - Now which ones for my photobook?

Chowpathy in Hindi means Beach so it’s “Beach Beach”.

Was told the people down at the beach are mainly non Mumbaians.

Why is it famous in Mumbai? Besides located in the heart of the city, it is popular for its local delicacies which I enjoyed last night on the Street Food Tour. Plus tonight watching the glorious orange sun drop between the distant buildings is a sight worth seeing especially trying to capture the locals and tourists providing the foreground subject!

This beach is a retreat from a tedious routine for many as people of all age-groups come to relax after a long, tiring day. The sea though polluted, with its long stretch of white sand is a welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of the city where one can experience the peaceful and serene atmosphere. Beach vendors selling balloons, toys and local dishes such as spicy raw mango, roasted peanuts and Mumbai fast-food (or chaats).
