Juhu Beach – Mumbai, India

With a population of almost 14 million, Mumbai ranks as the most populous city in the world, as well as the financial, cultural and entertainment capital of India. It's a city that's big in every sense of the word. But what most people might not realize is that it's also quite a big beach town. About 11 miles north of downtown, Juhu Beach offers a carnivalesque atmosphere in an affluent suburb that's home to many famous Bollywood celebrities. And they don't have to travel far, considering how popular Juhu is among filming location scouts. The palm-lined beach overlooking the Arabian Sea can get crowded on the weekends, but this isn't the kind of place where you'll want to just lounge on the sand anyway. Instead, this Indian take on Venice Beach or Coney Island is a riot of henna tattoo artists, dancing monkeys, camel rides and cricket matches. Best of all, it's the perfect place to try out some of Mumbai's most popular street food dishes, such as bhel puri (crunchy spiced puffed rice and fried chickpea noodles) and pani puri (deep-fried bread filled with tangy water).
