From here you would take a boat to the Paradise Beach. THere are lot of options available however they let everything ferry in weekdays. There is a boathouse too. Ticket charges are reasonable too.

Please make this place as part of itinerary. They schedule boat services to Paradise beach charging 300 per person. Please visit before 4 pm as they close beach boat trips after 4 pm.

We reached this place at 10.00 and they still hadn't opened up. The board outside mentions the timing as 10.00 but the boating doesnt start until 10.45. The boat trip is totally worth it though.

Don't waste your time here, there are many places in Pondicherry to visit.they are simply fooling ppl to offer ferry service to paradise beach, which u can reach by it car easily. Just waste of Money and Time.
