Couldn't not go!

Beautiful stroll, restaurants just one street back. Pristine, well maintained, quiet with few people in town. Can't believe this is in India!

The road is closed for motor vehicles in the night which makes it great for walking and just relaxing along the beach.

Luckily it was not sunny as were there in the day time. We just walked in from the public park. I believe it is much more beautiful at night, with the lights and all.

It's right there, one of the biggest attractions. Can get a little crowded, though, especially in the evenings.

Depending on the time of day, day of week & event calender, the promenade can be either an idyllic stroll on a pleasant day or a frenzied, jostling mob of humanity trying to get some ozonized air! The Sunday morning we spent there, the Promenade was host to a Rangoli Competition. Rangoli is the chalk-powder, free-hand art that's done on... More

Its called the Pondy beach and the first time I spent a long time looking for the sand. Its not that easy but you can find some at the south end near Sea Gull restaurant. The rocks and the waves crashing are calming enough. Le Cafe is a good place to sit relax and order some European food. No vehicles... More

This is the best place to spend your time in the evenings at Pondichery, the entire place is bustling with activity. You can just sit on the rocks and look at the sea for hours together.

Nice view of the sea and sunset, but the place is not as well maintained as it ought to be. Lot of littering around the place, sadly there are hardly any waste bins.

Visit after 5pm, when there are no cars allowed on the promenade road. Also, visit the Le cafe on Promenade Road, very good location. Food is Okay, but it is worth to visit for just facing the sea & seating & having your food.
