I am sure anyone who visits Pondicherry will end up visiting the Promenade. This is a 2km stretch with a walkway near along the beach. The view of sunrise from here is lovely. This place is also good to spend some time just strolling and relaxing in the evening. It gets crowded in the evenings in weekends, but you can... More

If weekend getaways from Bangalore city is in your mind...then Pondicherry is one of the places you need to be. Explore around the streets in White Town, or walk by the Promenade seaside in evenings.

We went here just after reaching Pondicherry as it was close to our hotel. In the day time it offers beautiful view but coupled with little crowd and humidity from the sun. But we went again in the night and it was so much better. Cool gentle breeze with lesser crowd and just the sound of waves hitting the shore.... More

We'll its a nice place to be for a few minutes. People all around disrespecting the sculpture, the architect and littering. Just made us feel bad. No one is around to keep things organized and guard the place from misbehaving people. Its a good sight but made bad because of people not caring for their own country.

Walking by the beach while taking in the waves is one of my favorite ways to vacation. Do not miss the sunrise at the promenade. The shades of the sky are dazzling and the way the light dances on the waters is breathtaking.

The first thing you'll notice is a big signboard which reads: 'Puducherry won't be the same if you litter" ..and boy!they mean it..It is one of the cleanest promenade/lanes I have ever visited in India..It's beautiful with the waves splashing on the rocks to your left and french styled colonial architecture with brightly colored walls to your right..Not much of...
