Nice place. Good and clean beach

Nice place to walk around and see the French influence. Though a little difficult to walk around on a hot and humid day, it is still worth the walk.

This place is really different, One can say the whole of Pondicherry gather here in the evening but still you can sit and hear the sound of the waves and enjoy the breeze , no noise.I just fell in love with this place. Since vehicles are not allowed on this road in the evening so kids can move around freely.

Writing this review from the promenade. Quite a good place to laze around and to keep you busy on other side you have French architecture and ice cream shops. Very quiet and the best soot to enjoy it a "La Cafe" with sea facing open sitting area to enjoy French food.

Good view.. Had a pleasurable walk during the evening. It was crowded but that doesn't affect one's mood.

the place is very nice in the evenings and the best part is that the police close the road to traffic post 630pm. so can let kids run around and have fun without a worry

It is a rare rocky beach in the southern peninsula. Enjoyed the evening walk here with family. Lot of shops around were selling street food. Must visit early morning for sun rise view.

The seaside Promenade along the Rock beach in Pondicherry is a neat and clean place. The Promenade is closed down to traffic betwwn 7pm and 7am. It also contains many attractions like the Gandhi statue, French war memorial, Old light house and Notre Dam chruch. I really liked the cold seebreeze here.A bit crowded on weekends though.

The seaside promenade/ Gandhi beach area is the most prestigious area in Puducherry, also known as the marine drive of Puducherry. The rocky beach is very neat and clean, you can enjoy an evening stroll on the promenade.

Promenade beach or rock beach is one the main beaches in the city. You'll find a lot of sea facing hotels here.
