“For a wonderful evening”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

The Seaside Promenade is a beautiful walk along the sea. It is very similar to Marine Drive in Mumbai but without the traffic (since it becomes a traffic free zone in the morning before 7.30 am and in the evening after 6 pm).

There are several vendors intermittently placed, selling chat and small wares. The other side of the road also has several eateries, as well as hotels in case dining is being considered.

Definitely worth spending an evening strolling along the seaside or just sitting along the rocks, looking at the sea!

“Good Place”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Good Place to hang out in Pondicherry. It has a local market around to shop and eating Sapad nearby in any hotels is a must eat.

“Pleasant walk.”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

The breeze was gentle and weather perfect. The promenade is closed for vehicular traffic in the evenings. Could have more public facilities like toilets.

“Run-down”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The promenade (no doubt designed by the French) is in poor shape. It's dirty, falling apart, full of litter and, in several places, reeks of urine. There is no beach per se (just rocks), so there's not much to see apart from the Gandhi memorial.
