Promenade and rock beach go hand in hand. Few bars across the road where you can enjoy few drinks. OK for a walk.

Found a hotel bar with a balcony, had a few beers while watching the world go by (it's the only hotel / bar with a balcony and close to the statue of Gandhi)

What a cool way to end a scorching hot day in Puducherry. After 5 every day, the Beach Road is closed to traffic and throngs invade the seashore promenade: it isn't Nice but it's nice (sorry, I had to do it). Just sit, relax and watch or go ahead and join them.

The promenade is a great place for a stroll. Cars aren't allowed so if you have kids , it's one less thing to worry about!

This seaside promenade is one of the best places in Pondicherry to spend time looking at the Bay of Bengal. Very clean, neat and well maintained. One can have a nice evening walk or one can come early in the morning to see the sun rising from the sea

Once checking into our hotel at Pondi, we directly headed to the Seaside Promenade. Wow. Clean and purely refreshing. The absence of hawkers and unruly street vendors is point to be noted.
