“Don't reach too early”

Chunnambar Boat House
Reviewed 24 July 2018

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.

We took speedboat as we hadn't tried it earlier, driver took us for many circles and it was fun to spend time, he dropped us to beach where we spent good time. This beach is not yet developed so it has both negative and positive in that manner. While returning one another speedboat picked is from boarding point.

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.

This place has become very crowded even during weekdays,you have to wait sometimes for an hour to get your boat ,the other part of the sea where they drop us is fine but you must be careful with the trouble makers of this place,visiting as a group will be fun

Chunnambar Boat House is bit far from Pondicherry city located on Chennai - Nagapttinam Highway. Huge place has become a major tourist attraction as this is the gateway to Paradise Beach.

Entry tickets applicable and boat rise is simply amazing. Backwaters is clean and good.... overall would rate OK-OK types of experience. No harm trying out when in Pondicherry.
