As the name, the entire stretch has Black Rocks, probably to protect erosion. Beach has Life Guards. Beach Promenade is good for walking.

The place is very beautiful owing to the landscape it provides along with the blue sky and the deep waters. The waves are a treat to the eyes.

Pondy is getting Indianized and the French influence is diminishing. This has affected the beauty especially the beaches. This is a nice crowded beach. Excellent for the sunrise and night walks.

From the name itself you will come to know that the beach is rocky and not suitable for bath. But I have heard that by filing up the beach with sand, it is now suitable for bath. It is a nice place.

This place is also called Promenade Beach. Its best to take a walk on this beautiful beach at nights when the street lights are all lit up

Yes.. there is parking but the road is blocked off during evening time. So you'll have to park on a parallel road..
