“L’amour est la poésie des sens.” – Balzac; meaning Love is the poetry of the senses.
Pondicherry (or Puducherry), a French colonial settlement in India until 1954, is a Union Territory bordered by Tamil Nadu state.
The city still has the French touch with French architecture, French streets serving cheese & street signs reading in French. In many of the cafes, you will invariably find a group of people conversing in French.
After watching ‘Life of Pi’, I was yearning to visit the place. I wanted to cycle on the streets of Pondicherry, take a dip along the beaches & eat cheese and cakes. You can do all of this in Pondi & much more.
In this post, I bring to you the three most beautiful beaches of Pondi that you would love to the core.
1. Paradise beach
They ferry you through the backwaters and drop you at the beach where there is sand, sun & waves.
Look all you can.
The sun kissed beach & the sand kissed waves.
It’s a song – the clouds sing, the sand plays an instrument & the waves dance.
2. Promenade Beach
Nothing but infinite water – the beach in the middle of the city.
Rocks or Waves? Let’s see who wins.
The hustle-bustle of a busy beach.
3. Auroville Beach
The beach next to a cemetery – Auroville.
The waves of wisdom.
The post is missing pictures of Serenity beach of Pondi. If you have good pictures to share, I will be willing to put them up here against your name. Let me know.
