Some of us are lucky enough to live within a rogue inflatable ball’s reach of the world’s best beaches. Some of us can paddle out for a ride on the greatest waves on a whim.
For those of us who live farther inland, or prefer something less salty, there are still watery joys to be had, in the form of the water parks. Summer is officially upon us. For most of us, the word conjures up images of hill stations, sipping chilled sodas and lemonades, and sweltering hot days spent bathing 3-4 times. For thrill seekers, sometimes the best part of summer is the feeling of plummeting down a waterslide into a chlorinated wonderland.
Located in the heart of the city, behind HUDA City Metro Station, Oysters Beach, Entertainment District, Sector 29, Gurgaon, has opened its gates on April 16, 2015. The beach is open from 11am to 7pm.
In the evenings the beach becomes an entertainment hub where one can dine and tap a foot on music with friends late into the night.
Oysters Beach is a unique experience nestled in the heart of the millennium city of Gurgaon right behind HUDA City Metro Station; It is the ultimate haven for all water lovers this summer.
Oysters Beach is spread over 10 acres and offers some of the craziest water rides you would have ever experienced. With a total of 15 water rides ranging from thrilling, daring, adrenaline pumping, steep falls to mindboggling rushes.

We the TWCI-The Writers Collective of India had an awesome experience here. Thru the day we enjoyed the slides and being in the wave pool. Had really good food at the Low Tide restaurant, which offers continental, Indian, oriental and mix of cuisines. Beautiful ambiance, of being in the middle of the wave pools. It has big glass windows on all sides giving a 180 degree view on both sides. Food offered is fresh with wide range of salads, sandwiches, cold cuts as well as main course like lamb rogan josh, chicken dishes, fish (oriental preparation) rice, breads and pasta too. They serve starters like chilli chicken, manchurian etc on the table itself. This whole spread is very reasonably priced at Rs.599/- A.I. and 399/- for children.
The children enjoy the most, with unending slides and water activity options. We also loved the crazy/lazy river which is just floating on the tube relaxing under the open sky.
They have introduced a MOB– Music on Beach. The MOB is a one-of-its-kind destination designed to blow your mind. Music on the Beach….yes the beach at Oysters. Wade in the water with your favourite beverage, groove to mind thumping music and see the stars dancing. Every weekend the MOB is led by a different artist. So watch out for whose leading the MOB next weekend and join the MOB.
Every Saturday, a local celebrity performs and Sunday is for renowned celebrities/musicians/artists etc
Having said that, the mood for all the happiness is set right with the varied philosophies of background music that will be played. So whether you are at the ticket counter, spa, food court or in the pool a different beat shall accompany you. Loud, soothing and enthralling music shall set the stage at this perfect outdoor venue making sure there is something to delight young and old beach goers alike.
