“good beach in chennai”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

Elliot's Beach is one of the beautifel and cleanest beaches in the city of Chennai . it is popularly known as "Besant Nagar Beach"The beach also has found importance with families, who now no longer travel to the famous Marina Beach.

“Good Beach but maintained badly”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

This is one of the lovely beach front of Chennai with motor-able road on the coast. But with so many make shift eateries and irresponsible beach goers and poor maintenance, the beach is losing the old world charm

“Less visited, which makes it much nicer, especially to swim”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

This beach is not as visited as Marina beach and it is a great thing: my wife and I were able to swim (still, avoid the bikini) and nobody bothered us. It is mainly families, people were quite nice. The beach is as clean as a beach can be in Chennai (quite ok actually) and there is a nice range of restaurants around it.
