    Fantastic clean beach with excellent views.
    Need to get there via a boat, which is a nice pleasant ride.
    Lost a star could do with more facilities, eg, sun loungers, more restaurants, etc. The best thing is that it's inexpensive a few hours outing.

    It is not a typical beach with sand and seashore. Nice place to visit. Come here in the evening, sit and relax. We had a fun taking stroll around. There are lot of cafes/ restaurants nearby.

    Good spot for sunrise view at Pondy. Just hope that it is cloud free sky at the time of sunrise. Also the road which takes you to the shore/Beach is quite narrow and be prepared for parking challenges. It will ve hassle free if you take a driver for your vehicle

    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
