Marine Drive

Marinedrive Walkway

Also called as Shanmugham Road, Marine Drive is a long gracefully curving road along the buttressed seacoast of Kochi City. The view of the backwaters and the harbor from here is really breathtaking. 

The Walkway here, along the edge of the backwaters starting from behind the Children's Park to the end of the Shanmugham Road, has become  popular with both locals and tourists. The 140-metre walkway is paved with black-dotted, red-carpet ultra tiles. Cast-ironed, wooden benches, weather-proof seating on ash grey tiles and the breeze blowing in, provide recreational relaxation.

Film music filters through the speakers fixed at the Renewable Energy Park, in the walkway area behind the Park.  Now there are two beautiful bridges along the walkway. At the other end of the walkway, a number of  country boats and motor boats are parked which are available for rides in the backwaters.

At night, twinkling lights of ships anchored at the harbor is beautiful. There are a number of  buildings along the Marine Drive which are good examples of modern architecture like Asoka Apartments, Taj Residency, etc. The famous shopping centers GCDA complex and the Pioneer Towers at the Marine Drive houses many showrooms and restaurants. The surrounding area of the marine drive has become a favorite location for shooting sequences for movies.
