Promenade beach lives up to its name as it is flooded by a crowd of joggers and walkers every morning and evening. This stretch of 1.5 km is the most iconic site of Pondicherry. During the walks here one can also visit a host of monuments and landmarks that line the beach such as the statue of Joan of Arc, the town hall, the stately tourist information centre, the War memorial, and the centerpiece of the landscape, the Gandhi statue. But none of these monuments attract as many people as the sea does; people sit on the rocks and gaze for hours at the crashing waves and the frothing sea.

As you walk on the beach you can pick up popcorn, chaat, or snacks whose aroma fills the air. There are also a host of amazing restaurants on the beach where you can unwind. No trip to Pondicherry is complete without visiting the Promenade Beach.
