Beautiful sunrise

Better to choose a hotel along the beach. Amazing view of sunrise. Make sure you have coffee at Le Cafe. Dec to Feb is the best time of visit. Else the place is too hot and humid.

Pondicherry - A Small, Bustling Beach City

Being close to the sea, you might find the place a bit humid. Get some loose clothes if you visit the place during March to August. The Promenade beach side has a rocky beach with little scope for a bath. But there are plenty of options in the vicinity of around 10 km that can allow you close access to the sea where you can spend the day out. The people are friendly. English will help you more than Hindi here. The best part of my visit to this place always has been the option to hire a bike with ease. Sometimes, in the evening, they might have cultural celebrations opposite to the Gandhi Statue with free viewing for all. I often find the city to a bustling one even though it is small in size. You certainly would see a number of foreign tourists making it their short-stay home. The French connection due to the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, which is a central attraction, brings in many foreign nationals. Enjoy your vacation here with affordable lodging facility.

Excellent place to visit

Loved the ambiance and atmosphere, a good and nice place to walk, a good long beach. It's much better after sunset. There are a lot of food joints & bars in the vicinity. I loved the place and the atmosphere of it. A must visit place for any traveller.

The feel of Pondi

Your trip to Pondicherry is incomplete without visiting the Seaside Promenade. You will find both the locals and tourists alike out here. The cafe out here is a must try and there is a local food market near the Nehru statue. Must visit in the evenings or early morning.

Perfect for beach lovers

Perfect for beach lovers. One of the best and cleanest beach in India that I have visited. The greenish blue water takes you to a different world of awesomeness. Best to visit with family and friends.

Clean beach to have relaxing time

Wonderful place to spend the evening. Beach side walk is the best thing for me always. Beach was very clean and tidy. Not many shops can be found in this place. On weekends the beach is pretty crowded in the evening. Also vehicles are not allowed inside the beach in the evening on saturday and sunday I guess. But there are lot of parking space available, so that shouldn't be a issue.

Pleasant walk on the rocky beach shore

I went there in the evening during sunset. It was an awesome experience to walk on those rocks. It is a rocky beach and hence there is no shore. You need to climb down the rocks in order to face the waves.

Sea beach with promenade

This is one of best attraction of Pondicherry. Govt Secretariat, Collectorate etc main Govt. Offices are here. I along with my wife was here at Evening and stayed up to late night. Here you can make photographs, I did so and attaching some snaps. Next day in the Morning also we saw the place while watching French Memorial and then went for Paradise Beach. But scenery of night was awesome.

Lovely pathway to walk beside the beach

This beach is a rocky beach, it has an excellent pathway beside it to walk which is well lit even in the night. The only downside is that people throw garbage while sitting on rock and make it dirty. But if you find a clean rock to sit on, you can enjoy the view of the sea for hours.

As water never full of water, so is the heart never full of love

Promenade Beach has having a very wide and spectacular front, along the Bay Of Bengal, each wave travelling towards you sometimes get weaker and some times it will shower you. As positive energy remains closed to the sea, such wave play and ocean behaviour and a seems to be junction of Ocean and Horizon, such scene you wish to have always. And as this seaside is the first choice among the local and outsider couples as the cool breezes bring pleasure, feelings and joy, because a great Romantic atmosphere, favour them. As the ocean is never full of water, so is the heart never full of love.
