Towards the Land's End side of the promenade is an amphitheater. It serves as a venue for the Mumbai Festival, Celebrate Bandra and other events including concerts, classical dance and other performances. The 'Artist's Court' is another performance venue built into the promenade that witnesses public Jam sessions on Sundays.

Bandra fort

Bandra Fort is located right at the end of road adjacent to Hotel Taj Land's End. It was built by the Portuguese in 1640 as a watchtower overlooking Mahim Bay, the Arabian Sea and the southern island of Mahim. Castella de Aguada has been featured in several Hindi films, such as Dil Chahta Hai, Buddha Mil Gaya and Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na.

Bandra Sea Link

The Bandra–Worli Sea Link (BWSL), officially the Rajiv Gandhi Sea Link, is a cable-stayed bridge with pre-stressed concrete viaduct approaches, which links Bandra and the western suburbs of Mumbai with Worli and central Mumbai, and is the first phase of the proposed West Island Freeway system. The Sea Link reduces travel time between Bandra and Worli from 45–60 minutes to 7 minutes. The link has an average traffic of around 37,500 vehicles per day.

Mount Mary Church

The Basilica of Our Lady of the Mount, more commonly known as Mount Mary Church, is a Roman Catholic church located in Bandra, Mumbai and is considered to be one of the oldest in the city of Mumbai. The church stands on a hillock, about 80 metres above sea level off bandstand overlooking the Arabian Sea. It draws lakhs of devotees and pilgrims annually.

Walk of the Stars

The Walk of the Stars is a 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) section of the Bandstand Promenade honoring Bollywood film stars. The path features about six statues of famous Bollywood actors as well as about 100 brass plates embossed with the handprints and signatures of other stars. The walk was inspired by the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It is funded and privately managed by UTV and promoted through their UTV Stars television channel. As of December 2014, the walk with the stars section of the promenade has been removed.
