Lined with a number of restaurants, Rock Beach draws crowds of locals and tourists who come here to enjoy an evening or a morning stroll along the bay. The beach stretches for 1.2 km (0.74 mi).

  • Really nice beach. Every evening they close the road near the beach for vehicles. And it's really nice these time. Lovely cold breeze every evening you can feel even when there is hot weather all day. I love it really great. You can literally fall in sleep there.
  • Rock beach is one of a good beach to visit and have a night walk. It's good to visit at new year night many resorts are available near it. The beach is safe. And the beach is maintained well we can't see much polythene bags. And the sea shore is clean. Nearly many people visit daily.
  • Had a good time with family. This beach is the best in puducherry. Evening walks are so pleasant. Perfect breeze, sound of waves, well maintained too, right next to French colony, good food options, most visitors. Can visit at night post 23:00(experience). Can drink while on beach, prefer beer.
