The most important part of any trip is the stay, and we were ditched on this. I had made a reservation by calling a hotel owner, however he did not ask to pay anything and agreed on providing the accommodation. After we reached the hotel, we were told that they are full. It took about 1 hr to get a hotel near Auro beach. So make sure you book your stay on providers like MakeMyTrip. We started the adventure around 9:30 am and the first thing we did was to rent an Activa. We started from Auroville. And believe me, I felt as if I was in a different country but India. Then we took the roads to the city and reached Promenade beach - the rocky beach. Do not forget to check in to the French cafes by the sea. We witnessed the old and charming French colony. A bottle of beer in any of the French cafes would make your day. But I would suggest you to try multiple of them. If you have a vehicle, please move out of the promenade beach road before 6, as its a no vehicle zone after 6 pm. We returned back to the hotel and sleep took our tired bodies into its arm.
