Entry point to Paradise beach

This place is located on the Cuddalore Road.They have ample parking space available.Entry fees to the boat house is 10/- per person.Here you can purchase tickets for either drop @ paradise beach or just a boat ride around the beach.Unfortunately when I visited the place, the entry to Paradise beach was restricted due to bad weather and had to just see the beach from boat and come back.Otherwise the place is very well maintained.

The gateway to Paradise Beach

You need to visit the Boat House in case one needs to go to Paradise Beach by ferry. The place is not properly maintained. There is a small govt restaurant out there but they could have done much better with it and they have shortage of staff and could really work upon it.

It's not an attraction, just a way to reach paradise beach

From this place you will get a boat ticket to paradise beach 200 per person return ticket. It is still under construction. Crowd was less since went on a weekday. Biggest problem is they don't have vehicle parking so you just have to leave your bike's outside on road. Boat road was nice. While returning from beach they brought us by speed boat but DIDN'T charge anything extra.

Good Boat ride

One has to take a boat ride from Chunnambar to reach Paradise beach. They provide us rides with life jackets at a reasonable price and main attraction in Pondicherry.

Beautiful scenic views and some trees will narrate the story of Tsunami too

Chunnambar Boat House is the same boat house, from where cruise and boats take you to the Marvellous Paradise Beach, other way it is a gateway to Paradise Beach. Boat House itself has its own booking windows, and tourists are in the waiting queues, for their turn, it has a restaurant and large parking area, all surrounded by trees. It comes under the Ariyankuppam and situated at the bank of Sankara Parani River, and locally called Chunnambar River. Because of its locality and Paradise Beach, this Boat House is a major attraction among the tourists. From this Boat House you find beautiful scenic views and some trees will narrate the story of Tsunami too. You have to reach early otherwise in late noon Management closed the Booking. A bridge passing just adjacent to the Boathouse on the river also create a beautiful view.

Boating, nothing else

The place is average with motor boat ride. It is okay for a one time visit nothing much to expect. There are a few chairs to sit and watch the waters and a small children play area.
