The road adjoining the sea is a good place to have a stroll. Do note that the road is closed from traffic from evening to next day morning. Also, it may get crowded on weekends. The time to visit in my opinion is early in morning.

It is pedestrian only walking promenade. Enjoy the walk and have a snack of Barbecued Maize and Coconut water. Dislike: the smell from gutters in some area.

this is on the road next to rocky beach. The road is closed from 6 pm to 6 am for all vehicles and kept open only for walkers and joggers. It's a grate place for evening / morning walk and hangout with friends.

This is about 1.5 km stretch that runs along the beach. This place starts bustling in the evening and hence is closed to vehicular traffic through the night.

Peaceful and serene place to visit. Among all the places visited in Pondi, this one probably is one of the best ones standing apart from the rest.

This is where everyone goes after 6pm just to wander and relax. The road is closed to all vehicles between 6pm & 7.30am - anything even parked on the road is towed or clamped so be warned.

The road on which this is present is closed during evenings for vehicles. Open only for walkers and joggers!! You can jus sit on the rocky beach for hours together and watch the Bay of Bengal if you are a beach and nature lover! :) Also the beach has a cafe which is open 24 hrs by name La Cafe.... More

This is a nice place for a walk in the afternoon... The roads are blocked after 2p.m. probably... So in the evening spending time in the Promenade is ideal way to pass time in Pondicherry.... There are lots of restaurants around....

Not really much to see other than the Ghandi statue. Much building work going on but little of tourist interest. There is no beach just a rocky foreshore. Nice cool sea breeze though in the afternoon and evening.
