Just round the corner from our fantastic Hotel(Palais de Mahe) you can have a great walk along the seafront. There is a statue of Mahatma Gandhi as well. Walk along early evening as they shut the road to traffic

Seaside Promenade is really great to see. The architecture and the view are great. Mostly kids enjoy this as they can climb up and do stuff.

Great place to go for a walk in the evening when the promenade is close for vehicle traffic until 7am the next morning.

This walk along the seaside is very beautiful, but it’s also pretty hot in the summertime. In the evening, people come here en masse, but during the day it’s almost too hot to be outside in this place with no covered seating. Still it’s peaceful...More

The day had been really hot, but to walk along the miles of seafront with a cooling breeze blowing ashore was wonderful. There was huge numbers of Indians from school groups, to families to teenagers and older groups of men. Many wanted to take selfies...More

I was so excited to walk on the promenade and paid a premium to stay on this street but definitely not worth it. It was loud and overcrowded. So much dirt and garbage everywhere. I visited Pondicherry 20 years ago and it has definitely lost...More

Yes, you surely can do it. I guess you arrive by train 10.30 to Pondy. Using 3-wheelers you can visit all the places in your list and spen in all of them some hours. Pondy is small, 30 - 40 minutes btw the destinations
