Must Visit Places around Mumbai in Monsoon

Must Visit Places around Mumbai in Monsoon

Mumbaikars often complain about the city’s plight in terms of transport, pollution, crowd and the daily hustle-bustle. But in their hearts, is the sheer love of how the city comes alive during the monsoon. Visiting Mumbai during the monsoon can be splendid! As the rain washes the city anew, here’s a list of places to visit in Mumbai during Monsoon to enjoy Mumbai’s rains to the fullest!

1. Marine Drive:

Marine Drive Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Visiting Marine Drive is on the top of travelers’ list on a trip to the financial capital. This place is the place to visit during monsoons – simply phenomenal! A promenade along the Queen’s Necklace (as it’s fondly called), indulging in the wave lashes a little and a cup of Mumbai’s hot steaming cutting ‘chai’, is a romance you won’t want to miss.

2. Gateway of India:

A boat ride across Bombay Harbour during the rains is delightful. The view of the Taj Hotel and the Gateway of India are truly mesmerizing. This heritage structure stands tall in its glory as the rains gush over it. Visitors could also ride along a Victorian style horse carriage around the Fort area to feel its endearing charm.

3. Worli Sea Face & Bandra Bandstand:

Worli Sea Face & Bandra Bandstand

With a picturesque backdrop of the Haji Ali Dargah, Worli fort and the Bandra-Worli sea-link, it is known for its high tides that manage to soak anyone standing near the promenade. You can also take a drive on the beautiful Sea link which is lit up magnificently at night which will take you to the western suburb of Bandra. An alternative to Marines, the restructured Bandstand Promenade has the vast expanse of the Arabian Sea and homes of the who’s who of Bollywood. You can also check the ‘Walk of Stars’ which showcases the hand prints of famous Bollywood stars here.

4. Juhu Beach:

Warm food in the rains and a stroll by the beach, this is one of the best places to visit in Mumbai during monsoon. The chaat corner at the entrance of the beach has almost every kind of street food you could ask for. Spiced ‘bhutta’ or corn on the cob is a must have here during monsoons!

5. Powai Lake:

Powai Lake Mumbai, India

Located in the northern suburbs and surrounded by hills, Powai Lake is an artificial lake in city. Nestled in lush greenery and ample flora and fauna, it is an excellent place to visit in Mumbai during Monsoon for a quiet walk in the rains. You can also enjoy boating and soothing scenery. Likewise, you can relax at the Powai Lake Garden and get some hot snacks to enjoy the rains with.

6. Aarey Milk Colony:

Situated in Goregaon East, the colony has lakes, restaurants overlooking lush green gardens and boating options. The maximum cover of green Mumbai has in one location is this area. The Chhota Kashmir Park, known for being the backdrop of many Bollywood songs, is a great family destination. This place has attractive gardens, pretty and colorful flowers, a lotus pond, and plenty of cozy niches to relax and laze around.

7. Sanjay Gandhi National Park & Kanheri Caves

Sanjay Gandhi National Park & Kanheri Caves Mumbai

The only national park Mumbai can boast about, the Sanjay Gandhi National Park is a delight for photographers and nature lovers. Getting an early morning short trek during the monsoon in the park and up to the Kanheri caves is a day well spent amidst nature. Exploring these caves sprinkled with Buddhist inscriptions on basalt walls and walking back with wildlife, birds and numerous plants is exciting for children and adults alike.
