ONE DAY TRIP IDEA

Juhu beach may not be your typical swimming and bathing beach, so it’s best to go on a tour and go sightseeing around the area. Of course, you can go with your own team, but won’t you try a sightseeing full-day tour and catered to the nearby star attractions by a ferry?

With India Magic Tours, see the best of Mumbai and visit some of its top attractions on their full-day tour. Take photos as you drive past 34 city landmarks, and stop to visit the Taraporewala Aquarium and Prince of Wales Museum (own expense). Plus, take in Marine Drive and the Hanging Gardens, and ride a coastal ferry to admire the city’s skyline. Transport, ferry, selected admissions, and hotel pickup and drop-off for groups of four or more are included.
If you insist to enjoy your own company, then strolling along the beach is a great option to do. Make sure to visit the beach in the afternoon or evening and enjoy the local attractions like acrobats, dancing monkeys, and cricket matches.
Another thing you shouldn’t miss from the beach is to feast the delicious “Mumbai style” street food sold in the food stalls available near the beach like Pav Bhaji and Kala Khatta gola.
