From neyveli to Velankanni via Chidambaram, karaikal, nagore and ten to Velankanni. The route is little worse up to karaikal but after that it is good up to the destination. We have hotels, petrol pump etc at various points. Karaikal is a place of Pondicherry so the fuel prices are low so who go by car can use this place to fuel.

The roads are good and smooth. Very good stops at Karikal; and always try to use the bypass road to travel from Nagapattinam to Velankanni. There is a very good shortcut while crossing Karikal, you can take an inward road to Nagapattinam and from there directly connect to Velankanni.
