Boats are unmaintained and in a barely working condition. Life jacket buckles are broken and the jackets themselves are insufficient in number. People don't compulsorily wear them even though nit is mandatory and there is no enforcement of the rule here.

The only negative part of this place is at times it gets crowded so one has to wait in the queue to get a boat to the Paradise Beach. This place has a restaurant which can be avoided if you are not too hungry

I never expected a place like this in Pondicherry. I resembles to the back waters of Alleppey. So refreshing. Best place to visit with your friends. Worth the money spent

Great place to visit with friends and family but avoid going here during the peak summer months as it can get very very hot during day time. Otherwise the place is well managed and maintained, boat ride to the beach is very refreshing.

Most of the time you will always find rush and speed boat to be full so cutting cake there might not be a good idea. You can always do it before you board the boat or once you get off to the beach.
