Chennai: Marina Beach Heritage Walk

1. Chennai: Marina Beach Heritage Walk

Start the tour at 4 PM at Marina Light House where your tour will commence. Meet your guide and follow them as you set off along the beach. First, climb up the lighthouse for a great view of the beach and the city, before heading back down to explore the Maritime Museum.

The statues tell a great story about the evolution of the city from a small fishing village to a thriving metropolis.
