    The beach is hardly 500 Mtrs from the railway station but a bit far from the bus station. One is not allowed to swim in any of the beaches in pondicherry unlike Goa.

    NOTE
    1) Come early morning or evening for a walk
    2) French colonial vibe is more interesting than the beach itself
    3) Autos are costly
    4) KBS is a good place to have some tea/coffee/snacks/cakes etc at budget friendly price

    This is probably the closest beach to Auroville, but unlike Goan beaches, one can not swim here. One can just sit and relax in peace with no shops and food around..

    Auro beach is near the pondicherry University and one can explore it as well if they want to see sunrise.

    NOTE- On the way back from auro beach to Auroville, the local villagers sell a local RAGI dish (keeps you cool) MUST TRY. Also locally grown CASHEW available which one must buy, it's really tasty here and cheap

    One of the best beaches in India I ever visited.
    Entry fee is 70 rupees.

    They have ample parking, many sports like speed boat, jet ski, kayaking, ATV etc.

    Nice restaurant, dress changing rooms, lockers are available.

    They have life guards available in case of emergency.

    Veerampattinam Beach is one of the most beautiful places in Pondicherry sightseeing. This village holds an integral place in Pondicherry’s history and hosts some of the most exuberant festivals. It is known as one of the most gorgeous beaches in south India and attracts a lot of tourists. Visitors at Veerampattinam beach can also watch the fishermen who work with their traditional nets to catch their daily fish.

    Location: Veerampattinam, Pondicherry
    Distance from Pondicherry Bus Stand: It is about 10 kilometres from the bus stand

    Got a scooter at the last minute along with my friends and got it for cheap. The rate was very good especially since we’re students. We got a cliq and an activa. We used it with no problems through the rain and the beaches of Pondicherry.

    This has got to be the best scuba school in the country. I did by Open water, advanced and nitrox specialisation front this school.

    The level of care, safety measures and the curriculum is unparalleled. We did both freshwater and ocean dives.

    The team, especially Shaveer is very knowledgeable and has explained nitty gritties of diving.

    On a side note: they helped me propose to my wife underwater. Thats one memory for life..! :)

    This was my first Scuba dive and had a memorable feeling for my life. The whole team was very professional and friendly starting from training till they dropped us at the shore. Special thanks to Akash, Elan and Bipin for patiently explaining on dos and don'ts for Scuba. Thanks to Elan for clicking wonderful pictures underwater. 40mins of my dive felt as if I was back to boat in 5 mins and craved for more dives like this.

    I am so glad I did this. Wiuth our super friendly, knowledgable guide Manisha, we cycled a couple of hours in the early hours of the morning before the traffic was too bad, and explored the various areas of Pondiceherry. It really was a great way to see the city, and at the same time get some much needed exercise!

    A big thanks to Sita Cultural centre, and Lakhsmi and Manisha!
