Juhu beach is a nice getaway to beat the summer heat in Mumbai. The beach shore is a great place for morning jogs. The never ending waves and calm are relaxing.
The beach is famous for it's street chaat like pani puri, ragda, bhel, baraf gola, chana masala and many more items for the junk foodies.
Juhu beach is a famous tourist attraction in Mumbai. Although it is not the cleanest of the beaches, it's good for a visit. Definitely not a swim and bath beach, but you'll always find the excited kids having a ball of time there and the adults soaking their feet in.
Best time to visit would be in the evenings when you'll have carnival type experience with all the crowd, food and fun going on.
Chowpatty Beach is one of the most representative of Bombay's beaches. It is named in many novels by Indian authors such as White Tiger or Chandra, stories similar to the Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire. It is located near one end of Back Bay and from here you can see part of the "skyline" of Bombay, facing the Arabian Sea. Bathing is not recommended as like the rest of the city and much of India, there are piles of garbage everywhere, with crows pecking the odd clueless cow. But it is a good place to see the sunset and share moments and smiles with the people of Bombay who come to escape the heat after the working day (or unemployment) and to take a few ice creams and juices. The juice and food stalls by the sea are very curious! Though I would not trust eating or drinking something from them, but they are certainly colorful and full of life! In short, a good place to have a good time, because the people are very friendly, smiling and, barring hustlers who can be a little heavy, in general it is a good part of this great city, wild and fascinating, although there are many that it would overwhelm.
