  • The boat service to Paradise beach was nice and reasonably priced at 100pp return. We did not had to wait long time for the boat as it was a Sunday and they had many boats operating. 
  • Staff are extremely rude, impolite and unhelpful with the exception of Shaji & Manoj from Pondicherry tourism development corporation. They were islands of customer friendliness in an ocean of apathy....  more »
  • We took the boat ride to reach the Paradise beach. The place is good however we waited in a long queue to get on the boat to reach the beach. The queue is not maintained properly. People are literally...  more »

  • 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
