Although the beach is OK there is no bazaar here now & rather a lot of rubbish laying around. For the drive from Pondicherry it is not worth a visit as the promenade walk in town is more interesting. That said, on the road back towards Pondicherry from Serenity beach there are quite a few antique & wood shops for... More

About 2km away from Pondicherry's White Town. An auto ride here shouldn't cost you more than 150 rupees. This isn't your typical bazaar flooded with people bargaining. Came here on a Sunday. The place was almost empty, but there are pretty cool bags, clothes and gifts to buy. After you shop, have a coke at the cafe while listening to... More
