Palavakkam Beach, Chennai
Palavakkam Beach is located in Palavakkam is a locality in the south of Chennai & census town in Kancheepuram district in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is located on the East Coast Road about 6 km south of Adyar.
Located on the East Coast road, 6 kilometers to the south of Adyar, there is Palavakkam beach. There is a temple too on this wonderful beach. The view at sunrise is just breathtaking here. One can stay in the many hotels and resorts in and around the beach too.

Unlike Elliot’s Beach in Besant Nagar which is crowded with shops, the Palavakkam beach is relatively spacious. This draws huge crowds from nearby neighborhoods. “Groups of youngsters from Adyar, Besant Nagar and Thiruvanmiyur come and play here and they park their two-wheelers on the road and there is no space for pedestrians to walk,” During the weekends, there is heavy traffic on Dr. Kalignar Karunanidhi Salai and therefore a parking slot is essential for this Beach.

Frequent bus services and share autos are available to reach Palavakkam. The place is nearby Thiruvanmiyur, which has many IT parks including TIDEL Park.
