  • Serenity beach lives up to its name. It is really serene. Of the 2 beaches I visited during my stay in Pondicherry, this one was the cleaner one although it still had some junk. The place has number o...  more »

  • Just another beach. Crowded on weekends. Lot of fishing boats on the shore. The Fishermen would take you for a small boat trip into the sea for a small sum. Life jackets will also be provided. Little to the north(left when u face the sea) is one more small beach which was looking more beautiful
  • The stay is goood and neat and clean and great location. The owners are cheaters and frauds. We had paid them for 4 people for 3 nights. Our 4th friend arrived on last day . when he was with us , these people started shouting and screaming saying strangers are not allowed within 15 minutes of his arrival. he fought saying its booked for 3 people only. He asked us to leave saying he has called village people and they will throw us out. Like genuine people we never wanted to spoil our holiday and we left. Minutes after that , he gave tha place to 4 young buys for 30,000 rs for 2 nights . bascially he wanted to earn quick buck by throwing us out an humiliating us and making money from other in peak indpependent long weekend. worst hosts ever in have seen. Plus no bed sheets in room to take when sleeping . who would use a thick woolen blanket in pondicherry. house was dirty. they were not allowing us to party also late night . there is just 1 bed. hence no chance of 4 people being able to sleep. the bed in hall is small and there is no ac in the hall. just 1 ac in bedroom which doesnt work good. Electricity went 8 times in 2 days we stayed . pathetic owners n hosts who have no manner to talk and are cheating with people
  • Awesome place. Peaceful and quite. Get on to the Rock platform that goes into the sea. Sit there for sometime. Sunset is good. You can see people swimming, surfing, talking how there day went, playing football etc.
  • The beach is extremely dirty and crowded. It's filled with garbage and fishermen's boats. Not really recommended for foreigners as opposed to better options like Auroville Beach and Paradise beach.
  • Firstly even if you use maps you may get perplexed if that's the way to go to this beach from the main road as entrance road to this beach is very narrow so simply follow the google map and you will head away to this beach. Here there is an option of surfboarding, if you want you make hire one at this beach. Have a pleasant time at this place.
