Beach is not worth visiting. The water is apparently dangerous and if you want to see sunrise in the morning you will see a lot of people pooping on the beach. Not well maintained at all.

This beach is amazing and usually swimming is not allowed here due to high tides. Be careful and please don't sit or use boats of fishermen there.

You can consider visiting this beach on the go to Auroville. The beach is really isolated from Pondy. I think it is used by youngster for drinking ( saw many bottles around) so better to visit during the day and avoid evening visits.

This is one of best sand beaches in Pondicherry. People can take bath here and the nearby pier is a good place for photography.

depends what you are looking for. But in any place you must be very careful: it is going deep very fast and sometimes there are huge waves that might suck you into the ocean.
