The charming beaches in Chennai are the best retreat for tourists from the hot and humid weather of the fourth largest metropolis of India. Chennai beaches are world famous for their natural outlook. All the beaches in Chennai are bounded by groves.

Beaches in Chennai have their own importance-they share their boundary with Bay of Bengal. The Chennai beaches have its visitors ranging from the local public to the national and international tourists. Generally, if you visit the beaches in Chennai early in the morning then you can witness the spirit of fishermen when they go out for fishing.

Beaches in Thiruvanmiyur & Valmiki Nagar

Thiruvanmiyur lies beyond Adyar and Besant Nagar in South Chennai. From Thiruvanmiyur begins the East Coast Road - a highway to reach other coastal towns like Mahabalipuram and Pondicherry. The locality, along with Valmiki Nagar and Kottivakkam nearby, have a stretch of beach that is more peaceful than Marina or the Besant Nagar Beach. There are fewer vendors here, and the beach is frequented mainly by those living nearby. This stretch does tend to get lonely later in the night although lighting has been provided in some parts for the safety of the beach-goers.

Beyond Kottivakkam, beaches like Covelong, are relatively unspoilt. Farmhouses, weekend homes and beach resorts line this stretch. While the concept of a private beach doesn’t exist, the houses and resorts along the coast have easier access to the beach than those traveling along the highway.

If you go further down the East Coast Road, you will reach the towns of Mahabalipuram and Pondicherry with their own beaches, promenades and sights. The entire coast is perhaps best remembered for the tsunami that hit South East Asia in December 2004. Chennai and its neighbouring coastal region, being at the tip of an outcrop of land along the Bay of Bengal, suffered the loss of many lives and livelihoods. However, life along the coast limped back to normal - villages were rebuilt, fisherfolk ventured out on new boats and the general population overcame its fear and returned to the beach.

A word of caution: There are strong undercurrents in the Bay of Bengal. While life guards are available in some beaches, it may be better to exercise caution while trying to swim in the sea.
