“Paradise beach”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Clean sand and water. good for visit for a single day. heavy sea water waves. can enjoy bathing but swimming is not allowed. carry own clothes for change. carry your own food as you will not find any shop or restaurant there. it closes early in evening, so plan your visit early in daytime.

“Sparkling beach”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

I have been to many beaches around India and this one scored pretty high on my list. The first awesome part is getting to beach. There is a backwater which you need to cross on the boat to actually get to the paradise beach. The ticket from the boat house for a round trip is Rs 100/-.

Once you get to the beach, you will realise unlike most Indian beaches this is actually clean and well maintained. The Sand also has a nice grainy feel to it and does not stick easily.

There are a lot of beach huts & palm trees on the beach where you can relax or have a beach party at night if you wish.Alcohol & Food are availble on demand here.

If you are not a guest of the hotels, in this place place then you need to leave the beach at 5:00 P.M as this is the last time the public boat travels by the backwaters. After this time private boat services are available for a premium.

Foreigners & Indians are plenty here and on a weekend it gets a bit crowded. Coast guards are present and keep on shouting and trying to preven you from venturing deep into the sea.

The water is warm & clear unlike other beaches in India. A fantastic place to visit while on Pondicherry.

“Beautiful scenic beach”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Clean white sandy beach, scenic boat ride to the beach and clear waters. However, nothing much to do on the beach. One small beach shack serving snacks/drinks (don't expect cold drinks or ice since there isn't any).

“Good beach for a cold beer, swim, sun bath, beach sport or family fun”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

You grab a boat to reach the island beach in a 10 min boat ride. The beach has large shallow portion through which you can walk and explore sea life. Those who want to buy beer, there is a small restaurant at the beach side, but get a side dish along with it or they will say they are out of beers, which by the way are double the price at the island. Good beach for a sun bath or a swim.
