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.

Soothing walk on the beach in the morning and evening is a must do thing here. The place is so serene and clean. The building behind are all painted white and it gives a royal feel to the area!

I visited Pondicherry with a friend of mine in January (2 girls). I am from Mumbai and therefore the Promenade here was much different from the Nariman Point. The promenade has the sea on one side and a series of pretty hotels on the other,...More
