A beautiful promenade which is maintained clean and tidy. One of the best streets in pondicherry that happens to run parallel to the rocky shore. Early morning and Late night walks can be very soothing, as there are hardly vehicles running around at these times of the day.Many cafe's,restaurants and shops are located at a walking distance from the beach....

I remember going this place in evening. The sound of waves hitting the shore and the ambience of this place is really amazing.

The promenade is nice insofar as it is reasonably clean and offers a nice walk along the beach. However, the promenade still has sickly looking dogs hanging around and the beach is incredibly rough.

I have literally walked on few of the best promenades around the world, from Hongkong to Singapore to Shanghai and Equador. I can tell you, hands down, this is one of the best!! Reach before sunrise, and you will find the place is filled with hundreds of visitors and locals. The time between 6Pm to 7Am is free of cars,... More

This is the strip on which everyone converges - a couple of kilometers of broad street with an equally broad pavement, along the seaside, which is closed to all vehicular traffic for an hour and a half twice a day. I am not aware of any other city in the country which has managed to carve out a space for... More

It's a clean strech and one of hyped road in pondy. It's ultimate road to walk with children as it's calm and you can enjoy beautiful site of Bengal bay sea on ur one side and white town or French structure houses on the other. Go in the evening and you will feel relaxed. They have cafe on the shore... More

I have to give this 5 stars for the way the authorities have maintained this. When I last visited this about 2 years back there were vendors and hawkers all around and as a result lot of litter too. This time I noticed that no vendors/hawkers are allowed here and the result is a clean, nice place for people to... More

Nothing spectacular if you've actually been to any Mediterranean promenades but still fun to see filled with Indian tourists. Eat some ice-cream and just walk around.
