Relax and soak in the sun at Elliot's Beach, a popular recreational hang out place and one of the cleanest beaches in Chennai. This wide and clean stretch of yellow sand makes a good family visit. You can dip your feet in the long shadows or sample traditional beach food from numerous eateries. Named after the British early 19th century governor of Madras, the beach also features a large centerpiece but derelict memorial arch to a Dutch sailor who drowned trying to save an English girl in 1930. Check out the beach boulevard with numerous shops and food outlets.

  • Vibrant beach to visit in Chennai. Lively on weekends and good place for walking in the mornings.
  • Its one of the best beaches no doubt. The place is surrounded by all types of eateries. The government has done amazing job in planning and development. But needs lots of cleaning at beach area and visitors need to be responsible too. You spend some quality time here.
