If you are going to Pondicherry some one or the other is bound to recommend you to go to “Beach road” and may be some of you might have been disappointed by the fact that there is no beach on beach road. Fair warning, there really isn’t a sand beach on beach road. But what there is, is the promenade and it is more than worth a visit.

The lovely area is perfect for a quiet evening with friends or family watching the sea ripple with waves or observing a ship sailing at a distance. The triangular rocks form dainty barriers for the crashing water and the place is quiet lovely and tranquil. You can even walk around or exercise on the cement path. Tiny huts provide refuge from the sun. Speaking of the sun, while you can’t see the sun set, be sure to watch the Sunrise at this memorable spot. The war memorial, the Joan of Arc Statue and the Mahatma Gandhi statue are interesting things to see on the 1.5 km stretch of land.

You can eat at the café on the shore or sample the delicious street food on offer in the evenings. Toy vendors and candy floss make it perfect for kids as well. This is the kind of place that will be a favorite haunt throughout the trip to Pondicherry, and no matter how many places you see, you are always sure to come back to this Promenade.

Promenade, Puducherry Reviews - Write a Review

  • Nice glimpse of the sea, even from Non-Sea Facing room that we got. Hotel staff was courteous with prompt and timely service. Location is awesome, right on the beach and near to all local attractions. Food is fine in taste but understandably priced a bit high for the kind of hotel. Thanks to the entire staff (Nelson, Gloria & the entire team)for making it a HAPPY STAY. Recommended.

  • Amazing view of sea...A place of tranquility. The place is on main road and faces see... Don't miss roof top or open space dinner... Although the place is a bit costly... But the peace and view is worth it.

  • Very Decent Stay. Great food and great service. Good Sea View for 8 rooms. Cons: Wear and tear has to be fixed quickly for a 5 star hotel. Swimming pool has lots of chlorine. Please use proper measurements. Otherwise, it's a great place to stay with a family.

  • Really nice place. The food was decent. The complementary lavash crackers we're excellent. The soups we're pretty sad. The sizzler was just okay. The New York cheesecake was pretty-pretty good. The outdoor seating is much more charming even though on most days it may feel a little warm.

  • I loved this place simply because of the location. Bang opposite to the beach and amazingly decorated rooms with French windows. Although the pool is very small and the food is over rated. It has options for bar and night life.
