I have found memories of this place. It is like a weekend paradise for students and working professionals from Tamil Nadu. The place is filled with both domestic & international tourists around the year. If you are planning to visit profoundly called by many) on a weekend, It is better to make your reservations well in advance. Pondicherry boasts diverse hotels ranging from 100 rupees per bed in 7-in-1 rooms to ultra luxury suites for varied guests it accommodates around the clock. Few of the notable beaches in Pondicherry are Paradise Beach, Serenity Beach, Auro Beach, Apart from these French War Memorial, Pondicherry Botanical Garden, Romain Rolland Library, French Institute, Pondicherry Sri Aurobindo Ashram are a list of few memorable places one can visit on his visit to Pondicherry. French influence can still be found in their old charming bungalows, monuments to local cuisines apart from Tamil & Telugu cultures. Pondicherry is well connected through air, road & rail networks, you can visit. In/how-to-reach. Php for better co-ordination for your travelling plans to in &out of Pondicherry.

Good to spend some time

The beach is not far all the main sightseeing of Pondicherry. The beach side giant rocks makes the tides controlled. The beach side road is awesome to walk in day, evening or night. The beach has also a very good restaurant Le Cafe which offers several south Indians and French cuisine. One can enjoy sea side wind there while having favorite drink and food.

Good Beach

One of the main attractions in Pondycherry. A well maintained and neatly kept beach for those who seek peace of mind. A good place to relax. If you get a chance to be at Pondycherry, never miss this beach. Good place for meditation too.

Serene and pristine beach

The beach is one of the most sought after and must visit destinations in Pondicherry and yes, it totally lives up to the hype. Be it taking a stroll in the evening or in the night, the beach is spectacular and peaceful. During the daytime, the road next to the beach allows vehicles, while in the evening there is no vehicle entry permitted allowing people to stroll and jog comfortably.
