Karaikal Beach and Paradise Beach of Pondicherry , the former French colony, is a haven for water sports enthusiasts. Overnight camping along the beach, backwater sailing, canoeing, kayaking and boating are some of the activities which are enjoyed by the tourists. Scuba diving is available at locations like the Cool Shark Reef and Aravind’s Wall. One can enjoy authentic French breakfast at Pondicherry while going on bicycle tours. Surrounded by palm plantations, Serenity beach is the perfect spot for sunbathing and sightseeing. A visit to Auroville where people from different nations coexist peacefully will be a delightful one with insight into possibilities and potentials of exposure to hitherto unseen cultural influences.
