The promenade along Marina Beach is dotted with more than 10 statues on the beach side and faces heritage buildings and institutions of prominence on the other side of the Kamaraj Salai (road). The statues include those of historical importance and icons of Tamil literature.
Starting from the Triumph of Labour statue (https://w3w.co/lyricism.prestige.rams), we will walk the (less than) 3 km stretch towards the Lighthouse at a gentle pace, taking in the sights and sounds. If you'd rather cycle than walk the way, we can arrange it by using bicycles that are available for hire.
While both of us will be explaining the claim to fame of the various people now carved in stone, I will be bringing some of them to life through musical renditions of some of their more popular works.
We will end our walk at the Lighthouse, climbing which offers stunning, rich views of the vibrant shoreline. (Visits to the Lighthouse are subject to its opening hours.)
Based on your choice, this walk can be done at various time slots through the day. We would suggest slots closer to sunrise or late in the evening, as lesser vehicular traffic affords a better environment to listen to the songs performed.
