This place can be visited by a boat ride, which costs you Rs. 300 per person. Not a very pleasant experience if you are there in afternoon. The sand turns burning hot and its difficult to walk also. The ads there boasts of banana boat...More

It is very near to my native place. I love to spend my time in this place. Evening is the best time to visit this place.

Must see beach of Pondicherry. Away from city. A little crowded by evening. Waves are little wild. Get your own vehicle to enjoy more time there. Good to walk on seashore. Cleanliness is average.

Its among one of the best beaches visited till date. The cleanliness can be even more better managed if planned. The serene view of sunrise n sunset is just spectical. Food n booze available..although limited items in menu is a problem.

Its tough to see sunrise , by travelling in ferry as the ferries starts post sun rise and better visit rock beach , where the view will be much better than here in paradise beach.
