Rock Beach-Sit & Relax

#Beach in Pondicherry

Rock beach or Promenade beach or Gandhi beach known by all these names the beach perfectly placed in the heart of the city. Situated in a busy, vibrant part of the city which makes this beach irrestible to visit.

It is an amazing experience to sit on the mighty rocks and let the waves drench you with water when they hit against the rocks. The blue water turns whitish and sprayed all across. Enjoy a leisurely stroll along the shore line, we are pretty much sure this beach won't let you down.

From a tourist point of view the beach is easily reachable from primary transport stand by shared autos.

Special in Rock Beach: Evening stroll just as the sun is about to set or a early morning walk as the sun is about to rise.

"The first time I visited this place was about a decade ago and it was shabby then. The second time I felt it was maintained alright compared to the first time but still was being littered. The last time I visited, there were drastic changes. Promenade had been completely transformed into an extraordinarily clean place. Very nice boulevards have been laid. Evenings are well lit up by the street lights. People in great number throng this beach road for their evening stroll and exercise. A superb place to spend your evening. "

"One of the best beaches I have ever seen. Vehicles are not allowed in this area after 6. More crowd than any other beach in the Pondi. It's not like regular beaches, you can't get into water. Just sit and enjoy the beach and Sunrise. It's rock beach 2-3 kms stretch full of black rocks. And most secure place in Pondi."
