Paradise Beach, Pondicherry

(4/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
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. Add Paradise Beach and other attractions to your Pondicherry trip itinerary using our Pondicherry travel itinerary maker.

  • Pretty Nice and clean place. You will get decent food from the sacks. However if you are thinking of having a beer or two this beach that won't be possible any more. Because that has been banned recently. bad luck
  • One word that I can say the "Clean Beach Island " in Pondicherry. Good place to have fun with friends & Family. I think a must visit place in Pondicherry , if you miss this place, you feel Pondicherry is nothing. Well maintained with parking facility , clean toilet, shower bath, food & drinks but Still need more amenities so that you feel satisfied. Entry fees is Rs.210 per head to travel in boat, will take you to the island . You can stay & Enjoy in the island until you want leave. Boats will be coming for every half an hour to pick you back. You love the view of island .
  • A great getaway destination! A great island accessible by the boat ride is a major tourist attraction featuring various water sports activities and other actions. Its clean and has basic amenities available. The best part of the beach is the access to Indian Ocean wherein you can go and spend couple of hours in the water and enjoy the atmosphere. Insider tip: Please order the food from the two shacks before they run out of it.
  • Nice and clean beach. Would have been better if there was a locker and room facility (to have bath and change dress)
  • Awesome beach accessible by boat, be prepared to take essentials like water, umbrella. Only a small stretch of beach is accessible for visitors closely guarded by security. Unfortunately None of the water sports shown on board are available.
