In the eccentric little city of Puducherry, you’ll find yourself between gorgeous French architecture, romantic streets and a culture that’s a very unique mix of Indian and French influences. One of the most beautiful features of this charming city is the beaches. There are four major beaches - Promenade Beach, Paradise Beach, Auroville Beach and Serenity Beach. 

Due to the fact that it’s a relatively secluded city, the beaches here are free of crowds and very peaceful. They’re perfect for enjoying a beautiful sunrise and if you’re planning on visiting, we bring to you seven terrific Airbnbs to stay at, from where you can drink in that dreamy sea view every morning!
