DESTINATION HINDUSTAN


Juhu, Mumbai 

One of the largest and frequently visited tourist beaches of India on the shores of Arabian Sea. The beach of beckoning , with its choc-a-bloc Bhelpuri and Kulfi stalls. One of the prime and posh localities of Mumbai is also situated along this sea coast. Compared to Beverly Hills, this place houses the bungalows of famous Bollywood personalities. Almost all Hindi films have a day of shooting at Juhu. 

Luxury hotels and apartments line the southern end of Juhu Beach, a favourite haunt of Mumbai's movers and shakers. It's no place for a swim or a sunbathe, but on weekends and weekday afternoons there are horse and donkey rides, dancing monkeys, acrobats, cricket matches, toy sellers and every other type of Indian beach entertainment. North of Juhu is Versova Beach, home to Mumbai's largest Koli fishing community. Juhu is 18 km north of the city centre, not far from Mumbai's airports.
