This beach is one of the major destinations in Pondy. A long street with great cuisines and bites on one side and never ending roar of the sea on the other. The walk along the street is awesome with strong gust blowing past you. The...More

We visited Ponducherry and were blown away by this place. Well maintained and right next to the ocean. There is no traffic between 6pm and 7am which is such a blessing. Lovely to walk, eat and spend a great evening

We enjoyed the evening walk, the traffic was controlled thanks to Pondicherry traffic. It has a really good view and nice breeze

In my opinion this is one of the best stretch of roads in India. Recommendable work done by INTAC (a dedicated organisation working really hard to beautify Pondicherry). This is a vehicle free zone from 6pm to next day 7.30am and very safe for all.

One of the best parts about the place is no vehicles are allowed here. When there is no honking, all you can hear is the beautiful sound of the sea on the side.

Hi...You can visit pondy and do the site seeing on the same day but if you want to spend more time on each visiting point then you won't be covering all the spots. Plan accordingly.
