Chunnambar Boat House
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Being to Pondicherry so many times, never heard about this Chunnambar Boat house and Paradise Beach. So, we tried this time as we went as friends, Chunnambar Boat House is on the Cuddalore Main Road from Pondy, next to the cutting of Wind Flower Resorts, Pondy. Paid Rs.150/-per person and went in small boat which has taken some 20-30 minutes to reach the Paradise Beach. Beach is awesome and having all facilities for dress changing, rest room etc., They also have a small Bar Type place were the Beer Costs almost double than what you get at POndy.
Beach is clean and chill. Enjoyed and came back. If people are going as 4 nose then you can take speed boat also.

You will end up in this boat house if you are visting Paradise beach! There is not much at this boat club excpet for the boat ride one needs to take to reach paradise beach and that makes this boat house important. The ride is pretty cool in chunnambar river against the cool breeze!

Positive side of this Beach: 1.) This is One Beach in Pondy were you can play in the Beach safely, there is a long Nylon rope to mark the danger Zone. 2.) The Beach is accessible by a Ferry which takes you across the Back waters up to the Island, the ride is fun. 3.) Arrangements are made to take a shower after playing in the sea water. 4.) different types of boats are available for joy rides.
Negatives : There is a Entrance fees small Amt. thats ok but Ferry crossing a bit expensive (Rs.150 per person), specially if you are in a big group, and separate charge for Camera, which is not understandable 2.) There is only one eating joint in the Island, food to be brought over the small counter, the counter is always crowded. its very irritating to buy food and drinks 3.) Eatables not allowed to the beach, the bags are frisked at entrance. 4.) Proper shelters are not provided, near beach for elders to sit, need to carry umbrellas, or will get sun burnt in the sun. 4.) A charge of Rs.75 for 1 hour to sit on the beach chairs.
Overall its ok...

Take a speed boat on rent (not very costly) and go to Paradise Island. The island doesn’t have much to see or explore. There is a shop where you can have soft drinks and chilled beer. You can enjoy the beach to yourself without much crowd. Please plan to spend maximum two hours in this island, after that you may get bored.
The real enjoyment is the ride in the speed boat especially if your sweet heart is with you.
