List of Beaches in Pondicherry

A former French colony by the Coromandel Coast, the beaches in Pondicherry are picturesque and serene, offering one some of the most surreal views of the sunrise. The seaside promenade looks like something out of a painting, with a long stretch of a paved walkway by the rocky beach in the French Quarter. Those looking to escape the crowds of this French Riviera can head on over to Paradise Beach or Pondicherry Beach for a more relaxed seaside holiday.

Here is the list of 4 Beaches in Pondicherry That Will Make You Fall in Love with the Sea

1. Paradise Beach

4.4 /5

Also known as the Plage Paradiso, Paradise Beach is situated in Chunnambar, close to Pondicherry town. Adorned with the golden sand, this famous and highly sought after beach is always swaying with cold sea breeze. This is a little isolated beach, and to reach here you have to take a ferry across the backwaters, which takes around 20-30 minutes..

Promenade Beach is a famous stretch of beachfront that extends for 1.2 km from War Memorial to the Dupleix Park on the Goubert Ave, in the city of Puducherry, India. The beach is often crowded with groups of people playing volleyball, jogging, walking, skating, yoga and swimming, especially during the evenings. This attractive beach is usually characterised by ocean sprays, waterscape and waves of chatters.

3. Auroville Beach

4.3 /5

Auroville Beach, also known as the Auro Beach is located in Pondicherry. It is a part of the Auroville Ashram and is situated about 10 kilometres away. The beach is about 12 kilometres away from Pondicherry and lies on the right-hand side of East Coast Road. Auro Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Pondicherry. It attracts a lot of tourists and locals. The beach stays true to its form and doesn't have a lot of establishments that provide food or snacks. The Ashram has maintained its serenity and ensured that it is not tampered or changed a lot due to human encroachment.

4. Serenity Beach

Located at a distance of 10 kms, on the outskirts on Puducherry in Kottakuppam, Serenity Beach gets its name from the Spa-Resort-Inn located at the spot with the same name. Originally, the beach was called Thanthirayan Kuppam Beach or plain Kottakuppam Beach. Boasting of supreme tranquility and sun-kissed sands, the beach is a gorgeous getaway from the city lapped by sparking waters of the scenic Bay of Bengal. The peaceful stretch is lined with a trail of rocks and dotted with sea-facing resorts ideal for honeymooners. Since the beach is isolated and little known by the locals, it provides an atmosphere of absolute ataraxy and quietude.
