Surprisingly Mediterranean

Nothing spectacular if you've actually been to any Mediterranean promenades but still fun to see filled with Indian tourists. Eat some ice-cream and just walk around.

It's a clean strech and one of hyped road in pondy. It's ultimate road to walk with children as it's calm and you can enjoy beautiful site of Bengal bay sea on ur one side and white town or French structure houses on the other. Go in the evening and you will feel relaxed. They have cafe on the shore... More

I have to give this 5 stars for the way the authorities have maintained this. When I last visited this about 2 years back there were vendors and hawkers all around and as a result lot of litter too. This time I noticed that no vendors/hawkers are allowed here and the result is a clean, nice place for people to... More

There's nothing extraordinary to say about this place. The whole look of the place is scenic with blue sky on the top and sea at the backdrop with Gandhiji's statue. If you are in pondicherry...its good to visit this place and click some nice snaps :)

Nice Clean area to sit for hours. becomes crowded in the evening but still worth it. Its a long Beach road where you can take a stroll in the evening.

Had been there for dinner, had an awesome experience. Its a sea side terrace restaurant. Enjoyed the ambience food. Better to book in advance and go as its very small place.

This place is a great walkway by the Rock Beach. It is very neat and well maintained. Everyday, after 5 PM, this road gets closed for motor vehicles and is open for pedestrians to take a stroll by the beach! As per me, this is the best place to spend the evening in Pondicherry. You can find several food options... More

Definitely an evening stroll to watch and take in the atmosphere - pretty hot during the day. Have acoffee in a local cafe or eat in one of the bigger hotels fronting the beach (eg Promenade has good food though service can be a bit offensive if you get the wrong person and wonderful if you get the right one!)...
