  • Beautiful boats available, although costly and over-crowded. A good restaurant is there on the campus where you can have a drink. Nice place to spend an evening. 
  • The boat to Paradise beach is from here. Nothing mostly to brag about the boat house. Nothing to criticize too. after the entire boat-ride to Paradise beach, you will feel the beach was the best part ...  more »
  • Take a taxi rode to paradise beach. Should be maintained more professionally, rude guys at the ticket counter.

  • It's a worst management from Pondicherry govt. We have tried to take boat to paradise beach. But after waiting for an hour in the queue they have told to everyone that no more boat ride for the whole day. We have found out that boat driver got drunk. It happens often..
  • Very nice boat ride. Worth 200. The beach is amazing too. But I can see it getting dirty in another few years as it's getting crowded and no one tries to keep it tidy. But as of now,a very serene place. Make sure to reach this place at least by 4 in the evening. So that you can enjoy the evening and the sunset ,and return before its dark ,and people start crowding for the last boat.
  • Stage 1: Entrance pass, average waiting time 30 mins. Stage 2: Tickets for Boat, average waiting time 4 hours. Stage 3: Fight with locals who bypass the queue, at least 10 nos. Stage 4: waiting for Boat, 15-20 mins. Well it's tiring enough. Better don't go.
  • The boat house will take visitor's money in every way they can. They will ask for entry ticket, parking ticket along with Rs 150 per person for just 30 min ride in dirty water. They even don't allow you to land on Paradise Beach. Total waste of visitor money. Puvar back waters in Kerala is 1000 times better than this.
  • An awesome place. In fact the best place in Pondicherry. A ferry ride to paradise beach to and fro fot 2 hours in just 200 bucks is a paisa vasool thing. It will be a mini Goa if they introduce some water sports. 5 pm is the closing time and you make sure you be there before that. Remember, don't miss
