Cool place

Cool place to enjoy both sunset and sunrise. Sunrise is especially spectacular. The road by night is breezy and free from vehicles. Many restaurants and cafes nearby

Great for a walk in the evening since the road is closed for vehicles after 6 pm. Also, a great place for a really morning walk to see an amazing sunrise. The place also has a 24 hour cafe run by the government....a nice place to sit and enjoy the sea view.

My partner and I walked from our hotel through the busy streets and made our way to the biggest Ghandi statue I've ever seen. Got pictures and saw the beach. It was really wonderful and well worth doing if you are in Pondicherry.

The seaside promenade is a long walkway that runs along the length of the town and borders the sea. The wind blows in your face and it is indeed a highlight of the town.

The Promenade is one of the cleanest places I have walked along in India. No smoking or drinking along the Promenade and no traffic during the evening. The buildings are pretty and its always fun to people watch

The promenade is undoubtedly the best part of our visit in Pondicherry. We walked here every single sunset and it was so romantic. What was nice was also the community feel as everyone was out to enjoy a beautiful walk with their family, friends and loved ones. We also did something very unusual such as wake up at 6am to...

Nice place to walk around and see the French influence. Though a little difficult to walk around on a hot and humid day, it is still worth the walk.

This place is really different, One can say the whole of Pondicherry gather here in the evening but still you can sit and hear the sound of the waves and enjoy the breeze , no noise.I just fell in love with this place. Since vehicles are not allowed on this road in the evening so kids can move around freely.
