watching the people of Pondicherry come out at 6pm to walk up and down this Promenade was wonderful...a place to socialise without the rough terrain and overcrowding of the usual streets. Fascinating and a must to walk either night or early morning.

It is one of the best places in Pondicherry but once again when will we stop littering. Anyways the sunrise and evening walks besides the ocean is a great sight.

In the main city there is no access to the beach and this place is built on the beach. The access to beach is restricted by rocks though you may want to struggle with them and go little further ahead. However, this is nicely built on the shore and you can walk / sit there for hours together. Good place... More

It provides an excellent place to relax and take long walks, or just socialize. It's is a very good initiative from the city authorities to stop traffic in the evenings and early mornings. Also it is quite clean.

This stretch of land well secured from the ever encroaching ocean is an ideal place for a quiet relaxing walk. Very well laid out and safe from traffic, it is a walk down memory lane when the French were ruling punducherry. With many french buildings still in existence, it is also an exploration of the french quarter of the city

Nice place for morning & evening walk. one can pass a beautiful time by watching the various movements of seaside. Calm, cleaned & rocky pondecherri beach makes mind fresh. Most people like this place & there are a maximum gathering have found mostly in the evening.

Walk, jog, or sit, relax to enjoy the view.. this place has something for everyone. Best time is early morning or late evening/night, not only because the weather is good but also because it becomes a pedestrian only zone. Continue your walk into the White Town and you'll be impressed further. Simply put.. beautiful!

Pondicherry offers its visitors a novel shopping experience and peaceful promenades along the sunny coastline with plenty of interesting landmarks. A walk along the Beach Road, officially known as the Goubert Avenue, is a must if you are visiting Puducherry. Although it does not have much to offer you in architecture it will give you a feel of old world... More
