Elliot's Beach is located in Besant Nagar, Chennai, India. It forms the end-point of the Marina Beach shore. It has the Velankanni Church and the Ashtalakshmi Kovil nearby and is sometimes nicknamed 'Bessie'[1]. In the colonial era it was a fairly exclusive place limited to ex-patriates.

A prominent landmark on this beach is the Karl Schmidt Memorial. The memorial is named after the Dutch sailor who lost his life in the process of saving a drowning swimmer.

The beach is a prominent hang-out zone for most of the college going crowd in Chennai. On weekends, it becomes quite an experience to find parking space on the beach roads. The beach also has found importance with families, who now no longer travel to the famous Marina Beach.

Molaga Bajji stalls have found camp here as well. If you have a steel-stomach, please do try these at Bessie, for a different experience. There are many eat-outs near the beach including Planet-Yum, Giorgio, Barista, Khana Khazana, Cozee, Tips burger, Muniyandi Vilas, Kaiyendi Bhavan, Manga vandi, Military hotel, Sundal, Sunda kanji, Ver kadala and the kadala put by the visitors, aaya pota paaya,etc
