Away from the bustling crowds and untouched by industrial pollution, visitors frequently come to Marve Beach for a stroll and some quiet time.
Located in the western suburb of Malad, the area around resembles Goa due to the presence of old churches and the coast lined with several exotic cottages. Groves of cashew nut trees add to the beauty of this beach as well.
The beach is comparatively small and narrow due to quicksand and swift currents, which also makes it more dangerous than other beaches in the city. INS Hamla, an Indian Naval Base, is adjacent to this beach and one can see jawans (recruits) undergoing training on the beach in the mornings.
Marve Beach can be visited any time of the year. However, the months from October to March are recommended since Mumbai is less humid during that time.
Marve Beach also connects the city to Essel World and Water Kingdom, popular amusement parks of Mumbai through a ferry service. Other popular beaches close to Marve are Gorai Beach and Manori Beach, which are a ferry ride away as well.
Marve Beach can be accessed from Malad Railway Station on the West side by BEST bus or autorickshaws.
