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 live music. Something extremely relaxing about this place. Really lives up to its name.

How lucky to get somewhere before people are saying "Oh it used to be good back in...
This is the sort of place that will grow and grow
This Bazaar is held in Kashi's Beach Bite set back from the seafront at Serenity Beach,which is in fact not much more than a fisherman's village.But it is ready to take off Kashi and her team have put loads of work into making a beautiful green sheltered space as an oasis from the sand and sea out front.Local goods and crafts are sold saturday and sundays and great food is cooked in the restaurant and very cheap.It seems the whole village is involved and supporting this place,when I was there a bad was playing and children and mothers sat on mats watching alongside europeans who were loving it too.Serenity beach is a gem and it is a matter of time before travellers will flock there and make the place thrive, it is the nearest beach north of Pondicherry.
