One of the most popular spots in Pondicherry would be the Rock beach. As the name suggests, unlike a typical beach with sand and the sea, this is a beach with huge rocks lining the seafront with the waves hitting the rocks.
A continuing stretch from the Rock beach the Promenade beach is along the same lines which offer tourist the place to sit along the rocks and enjoy a morning sunrise or a relaxing evening sunset. There are several cafes and shops around the beach which complete an evening on the beach.
A rather unique beach accessed via a boat ride from the Chunnambar boat house, Paradise beach lives up to its name. An isolated and quiet beach which is located on an island of sorts is one of the most beautiful and peaceful beaches to visit.
There are several shacks and shops on the beach where one can relax and eat. There are also water sports available on the beach.
As the name suggests, it is an extremely serene beach where can simply drop all worries and enjoy. The palm and coconut trees around add to the beauty. The shoreline and waves on the beach make it a good spot for surfing as well.
