Fun in the SunWe decided to take a peek at the famous Chunnambara boat house. The most amazing part of this place is you can take a boat ride through the backwaters to Paradise beach. The entry fee is Rs 150 per person. You will need to buy separate tickets for the boats, camera and other activities on the beach. There was a long queue for the ferry so it would be better to reach early. Tickets on a speed boat cost us Rs 1800. Wind gushed through my hair as I held onto the boat for dear life, screaming in excitement.Paradise beach has everything you need for ‘beaching’. Open thatched huts offering respite from the sun, a few shacks serving food, All terrain vehicles (ATVs), and an amazing sandy beach. People were at the waterline, getting knocked out by the incessant waves, while lifeguards stationed along the shore were preventing people from venturing too far into the sea. You can spend time on the beach as long as you like and then get back in queue for the return boats.What are you waiting for?Being born in Pondy, I owe my unique name to the place, because dad decided to give it a French whirl. Since then, Pondy has been my go-to place, come rain or summer. So check it out this weekend and let’s see if it becomes yours too!!!!- Kerina De Floras
After spending peaceful time, I carried on my way towards Paradise beach. It is one of the best places to experience in Pondy. I crossed the Chunnambar backwaters by boat to reach this paradise. The boat journey itself is heavenly.
Boathouse with other selective water sports in Chunnambar River backwaters is an ideal destinations for families and romantic day out.
The next day we went to see the Ousteri Lake but even after traveling for 10 km by scooty and searching a lot in the Google map, we couldn't find it. We went to the Chunnambar and Paradise Beaches next. A concert practice was scheduled that day for new year's eve at Paradise Beach. So, many celebrities came to the beach that day. It was a very calm and clean beach. We sat there for hours building sand castles and drinking coconut water.
We wanted to spend our evening at Chunnambar Boat House. The popular venue offers spectacular boating facilities in Chunnambar River, with the lush green plantations and backwaters in the backdrop. Located along the Cuddalore Main Road, this is an amazing location for relaxing and chilling out. One can also sunbathe here and enjoy magnificent views of the sunset. The boats usually take people up to the placid and picturesque Paradise Island Pondicherry, also known as Plage Paradiso.
