Great place for an evening walk

Walk the entire stretch in the evening or early morning. Have a latte' at the sea facing coffee shop. Don't walk barefoot on the sand portion of the walk.

There are not many people about this time of year. A school trip of children surrounded Gandhi's monument. The place is clean with no touts harassing you for business. Very peaceful.

We had visited this place when it was raining. So the weather was pleasant and amazing. We took a long walk with amazing south Indian coffee. It is nice.

Even though, this main part of Pondi lacks a proper beach, but it more than makes up for it with the beautiful stretch of well-maintained Pormenade.
