Trip Planner: Asia / India / Kerala / Ernakulam District / Kochi (Cochin) / Marine Drive
Also known as Queen's Necklace, Marine Drive is a popular boulevard running along the coast, and home to many celebrities. The busy strip gained its nickname due to the hundreds of lights illuminating the road at night. Palm trees line the promenade, along with restaurants, beaches, shops, hotels, and office buildings. Visit to stroll the walkway and watch the sunset, then grab a drink by the water. For a more wallet-friendly dining option, look for Chowpatty Beach with its stalls selling fast food and snacks. Planning Kochi (Cochin) trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

For a perfect evening and sunset.... There is a sunset boat trip, ₹200 per person. But I would suggest, better make use of the normal boating service. That's much much much cheaper compared to this. But this dedicated boating ride will give you an impulse of Cochin coastal beauty. Marine drive is one of the best places in Kochi to spend your evening. There are few food outlets and stalls. Have a wonderful visit. Keep the surroundings clean!!
Beautiful sight seeing place....Nice ride across the stagnant waters of cochin. Mostly prefer big boats during severe heat and small boats during nice weather...Price of boats is high for such a short travel but you can bargain it accordingly...The experience is very nice. We could see ports of several countries rented there. we could also see a island which is fully occupied by shakes. Occasionally during nice weather and in small boats we could see dolphins swimming..... It is awesome to see sunset...so select your time carefully..
