“Best place in pondy to hang out”
Review of Seaside Promenade

Ranked #2 of 54 things to do in Pondicherry
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 20 June 2018

I loved this popular stretch of beachfront in the city, along the Bay of Bengal. It is a 1.2-kilometre-long stretch in Pondicherry and one can easily spot the prominent Mahatma Gandhi statue in middle. Starting from the War memorial and ending at the Dupleix Park on the Goubert Avenue, the beach is very good in the morning and evening walks, to me it looked similar to marine drive (Mumbaikar thing :)) Another interesting thing to see is the old Lighthouse, located just opposite to the statue of Gandhi ji.

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.

Flanking the quaint French part of the town which has a lot of prominent attractions ... this mile Long promenade is an attraction by itself .

Converted into a vehicle free zone during the weekend in the evenings ( not sure about weekdays ), this place offers a clean and quaint atmosphere for an evening stroll ...

Post the evening stroll with coffee/ snacks at Le Cafe, you can end the evening with a dinner at any of the French restaurants dotting the French part of the town .

Don’t miss this place if you are in Pondicherry !
