It's a good place to visit during the morning and evening. But at night this place is very crowded. But a place to visit if you're in Pondicherry.

Unprofessional manager at their bar with rude behavior. Visited to have some good time with a few friends to watch football but completely spoilt the mood. Advertised that they will show the WC football game but decided that they will play the DJ. Seriously??

Not a typical beach per se. There are a bunch of rocks on which you can sit and watch the beautiful ocean. But have a look at the filth between the rocks and you'll question your motive of coming to this place. Food packaging, bottles,...More

Promenade by the sea was not quite what we expected... pollution is mainly the issue and also the fact that there’s practically no way to go by the beach. However a nice chat by the rocks with friends admiring the architecture was a good highlight...More

The food of this place is really nice - though little overpriced but the variety and ambiance makes the place really fun.

I loved this popular stretch of beachfront in the city, along the Bay of Bengal. It is a 1.2-kilometre-long stretch in Pondicherry and one can easily spot the prominent Mahatma Gandhi statue in middle. Starting from the War memorial and ending at the Dupleix Park...More

A very nice place and an attraction in Pondicherry. The view of Bay of Bengal is amazing. The best time to visit is in the evening.

Yes, you surely can do it. I guess you arrive by train 10.30 to Pondy. Using 3-wheelers you can visit all the places in your list and spen in all of them some hours. Pondy is small, 30 - 40 minutes btw the destinations
