The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation of Mumbai in its July 7 order had restricted entry to the city’s beaches at Juhu and Girgaum as a precautionary measure amid heavy rainfall in the past two weeks. Now, that the Indian Meteorological Department has predicted a sunny weather in the city during the weekend, beaches are now open for Mumbaikars to enjoy the monsoon seaside charm.

While people would naturally throng the beaches and indulge in activities or pav bhaji at the Juhu beach stretch on a Sunday, for those looking to spend time in some adventure apart from beach activities, there’s a lot happening in the city. From walks to art and theatre shows, here is a list of five activities you can do this weekend:

Theatre: ‘Us & Them’ play
