Marina Beach at Chennai is for sure not the most beautiful beach I have ever seen but I have to say it is going to remain very special for me always. It was the first time when my daughter saw sea here. Initially she was a bit overwhelmed. But by the second day (at Besant Nagar Beach) she was already demanding to go further and to be left alone! We did neither but that is another matter as the sea was very choppy.
