Off-season beach visit
Feb 2020 • Friends
The beach is a bit dirty but am awesome place to take pics and njoy. The beach looks lonely and waves are strong. There is not much snacks near the beach. Parking is there.

Dirty beach
Feb 2020
We spend almost 1.5 hr t reach here and after reaching here we felt bad. It was waste of time very dirty beach and crowd was locals. Garbage is kept all over near the beach please do not waste time here and explore something else. If you are vegetarian then i am sure you would not like the stalls on the beach selling fish, crabs and sea food ( washing & cleaning of raw sea food) in front of you. Avoid this place.

Closes Early.

Must come early to relish the fresh fish and prawns cooked in shacks here. Beach closes by sundown. The cops are there to ensure everyone winds up by 6:30pm

Best beach so far
Feb 2019 • Family
First noticeable thing, too much water all around, sometimes give scary feeling. Fact it will give exact sea feeling.

Decent place to hangout
Dec 2019 • Friends
This beach is farthest from Pondicherry city centre, hence the peace and less crowd. To make the most out of it, get a hotel nearby and watch sunrise at the beach and also stargazing. Unlike Serenity beach and Rock Beach, you will face less crowd and less distraction for your photos.

There are no adventurous activities around here. Also not a lot of restaurants nearby to have seafood as well.

Warning- When we went for stargazing at night around 9:30 pm, we were suggested by the locals not to roam around at the time as it not safe, especially for girls.

Overall a decent experience.

Quite little beach which has not been commertialized
Dec 2018
Its a small beach with strong waves and gusty winds which is very relaxing. A good place to visit. Raw nature. Cleanliness could help to beautify this place.

A Lonely Beach with shanty Fishermen's town along side...
Oct 2019
While returning from Auroville, we paid a brief visit to this lonely beach giving an impression of a desolated place at that time of the day. Auroville is on the west side of the ECR (east coast road) while Auro beach is on the east. Place is calm, peaceful, and the cloudy rainy day added a gloomy tone to the noon atmosphere. Cleanliness is compromised and surrounding fishery activity adds to it.

Not a clean beach
Nov 2019
This beach does not have much width to walk. There are no shacks or lights, so there is not much to do during night time. During morning, you can see poop at multiple places and may be 1-2 people doing that as well (at least in Nov 1st week when I visited). Pretty disappointed. We went there to see sunrise and never wanted to come back.
