One of the best things about living in Mumbai is being next to the sea. Unfortunately, many of the shoe-box apartments mostly offer a view of other shoe-box apartments.

But all is not lost. If you want to have a chill weekend and gaze at the water day and night, there are spots to go. We’ve rounded up Mumbai’s best Airbnbs with a sea-view.

During the evenings, don’t forget to escape for some delicious street food on Juhu beach and to play some cricket on the sand.

A Room With A View {Of The Arabian Sea}

A super budget room offering a private room with sea view, and a stone’s throw away from the beach. It is a tiny room with basic amenities, but if you’re a sucker for gorgeous sea views and lapping waves against the rocks, we say book this immediately.

It’s five minutes away from the Versova metro station, which makes it easier to access. Please note, it’s a vegetarian-only place, so meat-eaters, hard luck.
