Posh and lovely

This is an up market area that boasts a lot of posh high rise buildings coming up. Definitely adds to the lovely skyline of Mumbai.

Looking over Chipati beach this was stunning,across the road from the hanging gardens the views were breath taking,I could see right along Marine drive with all the hotels and houses on view.

Not much to see...hanging gardens...nothing hanging there ! Residential area. Mumbai is a very run down city, not much difference here. Don't expect any visual highlights

Beautiful area in south Mumbai, as it is on a hill the views are beautiful. The area is posh with many high rise buildings coming up.

The richest people and the most powerful people in Mumbai live here. Lovely surroundings with large number of parks, the sea to one side and excellent infrastructure.

Malabar Hill is on the way to nowhere. You can't pass Malabar Hill; you have to go there. That's what makes Malabar Hill exclusive. To have reason to visit, and therefore, see Malabar Hill, The same is true of Altamount Road, of Pali Hill Road, of The Taj Mahal Hotel. You don't pass these roads or places on the way... More

Beautiful beaches! As I would caution back home (in Accra, Ghana) beware of the water. The difference with this beach is that the sand appeared to be clean we were only on the beach for a short while but it seemed like an enjoyable environment for all. Not too busy on a Friday.

This overlook is in a park area and provides some good photo -opps. There is also an interesting ' Shoe' in the area that looks like a depiction of the 'old woman who lived in the shoe' story. It's repair has deprecated so children can no longer climb on or in it like they once did.

One of the few quiet and peaceful residential areas in Mumbai. The W club provides good activities for members.

As a tourist the area to visit here are the hanging gardens that give a great view of the city- especially marine drive and nariman point.
