Hi Alex

Velankanni is almost 375 KMS from Chennai. The following ar the options:

Cab: The quickest route would be Chennai- Mahabalipuram (ECR)- Pondy- Cuddalore- Chidambram- Sirkali- Karaikal- Nagapattinam- Velankanni if you are taking a cab from Chennai.

Vellankanni is also well connected by extremely comfortable buses (i am told there are sleeperets in some of these !!). There are quite a few operators, but the famous ones are Rathi Meena. Their website should give you details(www.rathimeena.co.in).

Train: You will need to take an overnighter from Chennai to Mayiladuthurai (earlier called Mayavaram) and either take a local cab or bus to Velankanni.

Hope this helps
