    Marina Beach, Chennai

    More about Marina Beach, Chennai and Historical Information

    Forming part of the Indian Ocean, situated along the Bay of Bengal can be found the natural, urban beach of Marina Beach. Located in the city of Chennai in India, the beach spreads in the north from near Fort St. George to Besant Nagar to the south. It is known to be the longest natural, urban beach in the country and the second largest in the world. With an average width of approximately 300 m, the beach is mainly sandy and is a warm and welcoming atmosphere to visitors.

    Even though bathing and swimming in the waters are prohibited by law due mainly to the dangerous undercurrents, this is not a deterrent to the myriad visitors who trek there on a daily basis. However, it has not remained untouched by the presence of people as it is considered to be one of the dirtiest beaches in India. This fact also does not act as a discouraging factor for the tens of thousands of daily visitors to its shores. There have been efforts in recent times by a number of voluntary organizations to clean up the beach and to save the natural flora and fauna that makes this beach their habitat.
