Beaches in Chennai

Chennai has 10 city centre beaches, the most popular of which are Marina Beach, Edward Elliot’s Beach and Breezy Beach. Marina Beach is 13 km long and 6 km of it is backed by a near continuous line of food and beverage vendors. It’s a popular place for local people to visit in the early evening and eat food.

You can’t swim or sunbathe on the beaches in Chennai. Swimming is banned because of the strong sea currents and local custom is not permissive of people exposing their bodies in swimming costumes, particularly women. Instead, the beaches are a place to walk and play games. Local people in Chennai often come to the beach to play football and cricket in the early evening.


Chennai’s top tourist attraction is Mahabalipuram, which is located 55 km by road to the south of Chennai. Mahabalipuram is a coastal temple complex built during the 7th and 8th Centuries. It contains over 400 buildings, and has attained UNESCO World Heritage Site status. It’s one of the most important temple complexes in India and a fine example of the architecture and art of ancient Tamil Nadu. The reliefs carved into stone are both large and intricate.

The most striking part of Mahabalipuram are the seven large tiered temples facing out to sea. The temples were visible to sailors on passing ships more than a millennium ago and it was assumed by foreigners for a long time that these large coastal temples were Chinese style pagodas because of their pyramidal shape. The name ‘Shore Pagodas’ is still sometimes used today to refer to these temples, which aren’t pagodas.
