This is place is best for the people who want to get away from the daily life the best place for couples to enjoy the beautiful evening with sea waves and the walkway where sellers keep you wondering what "Malla Malli" is and when I saw then they are actually jasmine sellers. Overall it's a nice place to visit in... More

A walk along the promenade in the evening is perfect if you are looking for destressing. The sea breeze is amazing. The road is so good for a comfortable walk/jog/run.

The time spent in the evening at the promenade is nothing short of a stress buster. No vehicles on the road, kids playing around, and the wind that blows onshore from sea, it just has the relaxing effect on your senses and relieves your stress.

A really good place, but too crowded for my liking. On weekends there is a lot of crowd and at times its even difficult to walk without bumping into people. The crowd lasts as late as 11 PM and starts as early as 5 AM.

the Promenade really comes to life in evening. One can just sit there facing the sea and enjoying the cool breeze or walk along the promenade enjoying the sights and sounds. If you are a mumbaikar, it is a combination of marine drive and chowpatty :)

Promenade - A memory for life! Walking across the Promenade stretch was a memorable experience and will be cherished forever. A surreal experience which everyone should experience on their visit to Puducherry. It truly justifies the Puducherry tagline - "Give time a break!". A place to experience.

Although we stayed for 3 days near French Town, we use to visit Promenade Beach Road for a pleasant night walk... We can see Old Light House,War memorial and many prominent places over there...It is a must visiting place.

I have been to this hotel many times for dining and everytime I feel that its the first time. First of all the roof top is amazing with great view of the sea and the breeze which hits your face in the evening time is wonderful. The ambience is very quiet and low lit. This makes it a very romantic... More

Apart from Auroville, I'd say this place is the highlight of Puducherry. The road is closed from 18.30 to 07.30 and thus an evening stroll is a must. Street food is available aplenty and this is a nice place to spend some quality time. The Mahatma Gandhi statue and War memorial along the road are overshadowed by the beachfront. Also,... More
