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.
