windy (the heat becomes bearable !), lively, a charming place to spend some time, looking at the sea & enjoying life, all day long (or evening for that matter). You get fresh fruits, snacks of all sorts & get to see indian people having a good tome altogether.

It is situated ~300 metres away from JN Street and a definitely must visit place if you are in Pondi. Its a clean stretch of ~1.5 km of road with the sea on one side. You would find people taking stroll on the road. The police doesnt allow vehicles on this stretch for sometime both during morning and evening

A nice evening walk on the seaside Promenade should be on your to do list while visiting Pondicherry. We had a very nice time....watching a live boxing match at the Promenade, watching the sea, blowing soap bubbles, eating out in the cafe, coffee and all was fun!

Liked: The long stretch of built up promenade where one can sit and watch people, sea and the myriad activities which are happening around the place. also Le cafe is a good place to catch a cup of coffee while enjoying the sea breeze. It seems the only one around so close to the sea. Beware: the food is very... More

Very clean, well planned, and well maintained. Excellent place to go for an evening walk. It gets quite crowded but they block of all vehicles on the road right next to the promenade for more pedestrian space. We happened to go for a walk on an evening that the police band were conducting a small show! It lasted only about... More

Extremely clean and well maintained. Few eateries in the area which cater to different budgets, No vehicles allowed from 1900 - 0600 which makes it a great place to walk, jog or simply hang out.

Experienced the prom both at dawn and during the evening passagiata, which is definitely alive and well in Pondicherry. It's a very old fashioned seafront, with seating all the way along the seawall, so you can sit and watch the world go by with a lovely sea breeze behind you. 'Le Cafe' place centrally, offers good breakfasts and French pastries... More

Awesome place. Good food. Great drinks. Try the Baileys infused Rasmalai. Sunday Brunch is also good to feast on.

Just a lovely place to stroll along either by day or night enjoying the breezes from the Bay of Bengal. It is delightfully undeveloped though there is a small reasonably priced gift shop there and sometimes an open air pop group playing.
