Elliot's Beach is located in Besant Nagar, Chennai, India. It forms the end-point of the Marina Beach shore, and is named after Edward Elliot, onetime chief magistrate and superintendent of police in colonial Madras. It has the Annai Vailankanni Church and the Ashtalakshmi Kovil located nearby. In the colonial era, it was a fairly exclusive beach limited to white people.
There is a police outpost at the beach and the crowd is policed by means of all-terrain vehicles to prevent drowning mishaps. In 2010, there were 11 drowning cases reported off Elliots Beach. In August 2012, the government sanctioned two more all-terrain vehicles for patrolling the beach.
