Auroville Beach - popularly referred to as Auro beach - as the name suggests is close to Auroville. It is situated at the right side of the ECR, opposite to the road leading to Auroville. Located about 12 kms from the main Puducherry town, its shallow waters and small waves make it an ideal place for swimming. It is a fairly popular destination and on weekends it can get rather crowded, whereas on weekdays it is relatively less so.
Whether it is swimming in the sea, playing on the shore or just taking a lazy stroll; indulge in your desire on clean sands and cool waters. The beach is also used by surfers - both beginners and professionals - to hone their skills. You can spot them early in the mornings.
The long stretch of beach has many points of entry and exit. Hotels, Guest Houses and shacks are present along the shore.
Beach closes at 6:30pm
