Can be avoided

This beach is not the place to be visited if you are planning to play in water.The road leading to the beach (last 200metres from main road) is very narrow.There is not much place to park the vehicles.The beach is not well maintained.Serenity beach can be visited instead of this beach.

The beach of Auroville

Auroville beach is 9km from Pondicherry. You can walk to here from Auroville bus stop ECR means eastern coast road. The beach is not much safe. High probability of high tides there. Some budget range resorts and rest houses are there. But you cannot spend much time here as there is no place to sit or stand even.

Nice beach

This is right on the highway and on the way returning from Auroville monument. This is clean and easily accessible beach. There are lot of restaurants on the beach for food.

Nice beach but watch yourself stepping into poop

A really nice place and very serene however, this place really needs to clean up. Since I stayed in the vicinity of this beach I thought it might be a good idea to have brisk morning walk on the beach. However, calmness gave way to smells and sights of local fisherman answering to nature's call on the vast expanse of the beach. I had to be careful lest I step into one of those pits they use for the purpose. Not to mention remains of coconut, bottles and plastics scattered around the whole beach.

Superb hangout place to have fun

Auroville beach Pondicherry is just awesome for sightseeing and to have fun. Beach volleyball and other extra curricular sports over the guest house are superb to pass the time.

A place of fun and enjoyment

Airoville beach also known as Auro beach combines the exotic experience of fun and adventure. The attraction there is the awesome sunrise view which energizes and revive the feeling of love and enjoyment. The best time to visit Auro beach is during early morning time where the lavish beauty of sunrise and fisherman's there will increase the beauty of the view. You will easily find cottage house with cheap rate near the beach.

Poor maintenance but peaceful place

I will give the last rank among the beaches I visited. No maintenance is there from the Govt. No food is available. It is little far from the city but not that bad also. Peaceful place.
