Paradise Beach, Pondicherry

4.0
#1 of 8 in Outdoors in Pondicherry
Catch a ferry to reach the long sandy coast of Paradise Beach. The clean, large beach offers plenty of space for beach sports, boasting clean water and intermittent waves that create perfect conditions for body boarding. Take part in boating or other water sports, then grill up a beach barbeque to make up for lost calories. Amenities include change rooms, bathrooms, and a few restaurants, but the selection of dishes is limited, so you might want to bring your own food and enjoy a picnic instead. Put Paradise Beach and other Pondicherry attractions into our Pondicherry trip planner , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Awesome place... Neatly maintained.. I think one of the very few nicely maintained beaches in India... Water too is very clean... Awesome place to hangout with group and family... Once water sports starts it will make this place more happening...
  • To reach the beach you have to go by boat which cost about 210 per person and would take around 10 minutes to reach the beach. The beach is more like family-friendly. it is very crowded during weekends around afternoon. no alcohol is served and smoking not allowed. There are two restaurants but don't have high expectations with seafood or fresh juices. There are many activities like fish spa, kayak boat, rain dance and others. Public showers and toilet are available. I would recommend spending your time in Le Pondy Resort they have good packages for full day or overnight.
  • The website makes you believe this place is fantabulous! But once you get across the waters to the beach, it just feels like any other beach. They do seem to have good infrastructure built there but when I visited nothing seemed to be operational! Slightly disappointed by it all. It definitely is peaceful and relatively quiet!
  • This place is really nice. There is still work going on. But it has individuals shower and changing rooms. Have small two three hotels. I am not sure about food prices. But it's a awesome beach to hang out.
  • You need to take a ferry trip to reach this beach. It is beautiful and calm. There are very few shops available and the beach will be little crowded during weekends. Preferable time would be after 4 in summer. Shower, dressing huts, lifeguards and snacks are available.

Where to stay in Pondicherry

The bulk of visitors to Pondicherry choose to stay in the east side of town. Close to the sea and the well-maintained waterfront, the old colonial French district features a number of stylish boutique hotels and budget-friendly guesthouses, as well as a solid selection of standard hotels along the newer roads. Ashrams and spa retreats provide an array of additional facilities, usually with sea views and more spacious surroundings to the north of the main city.
