The Sea side promenade is a good place for evening walks. It is a pedestrian only place post 4.00 P.M. The view of the sea is lovely and there are good cafés around. Good place to chill in the evenings.

Nice promenade place in the old French colony. The view of the Bengal coast is beautiful. The old French style houses in the area are great. To visit if you are in Pondicherry‎.
