Planning to visit Pondicherry in the near future? Well, this is the first way to start your trip to make it exciting, motivating yet entertaining. Because I did the same thing in the month of January. I think there's no need of seeing particular season to witness sunrise. Regardless seasons, Auroville's Beach view at the early times of sunrise are indescribable. But I try to describe you in my words.

For all the nature lovers and nature photographers, it's my sincere suggestion to stay in Auroville, the village which is very near to Pondicherry around 6km of distance. Because, this village gives you all the vibes you need and let you search your soul if you lost it somewhere. I have started from Chennai at night 11pm and reached Pondicherry in the midnight 2.30 am. I have checked into my hotel at that peak night time. Don't worry about it. Though, Auroville is a village, people host you at any time. Especially, one can find a lot of hotels, beach houses, Visitor Huts available for 24 hours. With the suggestion of one of our hotels, my boyfriend and I have decided to visit the Auroville beach which was nearby around 100 meters from the Hotel Villa Triomphe. Trust me, that was the best suggestion I have received from someone in Pondicherry.

The next day in the early morning around 5.30 am we started from the hotel. If in case you visit in the summers, you have to hit the beach before 5 am to witness the early sunrise. Auroville village is very vintage and delivers the old country vibes all time. It would be fun staying in the village atmosphere for a while. From any nearby hotels, Auroville beach would be the best. But if you stay in Pondicherry, you must start early to hit Auroville beach. Out of all beaches in Pondicherry, Sunrise in Auroville is more popular and one can find many travelers, visitors, and hell lot of photographers to click the sun.

I have visited the beach through a narrow passage which leads to the seashore of the beach. We have passed the passage and we could see many hotels, visitor huts, small cottage places nearby the beach. That was my first time to Pondicherry, hence I didn't know about beach houses. In Auroville, one could find hotel spaces inside the village and near to beach also.

Finally, we hit the shore. I could hear the clashing sounds of waves and the gloominess in weather. That gloominess has got cut off by the brightness of the sun. That was all about Sunrise. We sat on the shore and we could see fishermen already hit the sea for fishing. Those small boats, those deep blue waters with beige, sand, white clouds, orange-ish Pink sky with blue sky, it was totally like a wonder to see all those colors together. It was one of the best scenic views I have ever witnessed. This simple beach view was mostly all about Sunrise. We could see that Orange ball rising up in the blue sky from those deep blue waters of the sea.

The chirping sounds of birds from the sky, the crawling crabs from the sand, the roaming country dogs on shore, the village men from Auroville, depicts the whole nature altogether at one place. The beach of Auroville is a must visit to any nature appreciator. Soon the sunrise hit the sky, the color of the sky turns into an inexplicable artistic color which is scenic to witness.

The people who visited the beach has already started clicking beautiful pictures when I was appreciating the nature and filling it totally into my eyes. I could see couples taking pictures and walking on the shore to enjoy the romantic getaway. Some of the French men were performing early Yoga in the sea shore. Doing Yoga on the beach of Auroville in the morning was one of the best things I have done in Pondicherry. If you are also a Yoga lover, please hit this beach in the morning.

After witnessing the sunrise in the early morning of Auroville, we thought of leaving the beach to explore the village in the Morning. The mornings in villages are always beautiful. The tea stalls with those old Tamilian songs were epic. If you want to enjoy the village atmosphere, don't be a visitor, be a villager. Connect to them. Those people in Lungis and veshtis, the village labor who starts from their homes to get to work, the people who natter around tea stalls are just fun.

Travelling is not only about exploring the place, but also about people, culture and their traditions too. The old soulful music from temples and nearby shops add flavor to the village. Auroville village is also famous for its french colonies. All the French resides in those deeper corners of Auroville. The houses in Auroville reflect the village modernism. The morning sky is too beautiful that one couldn't resist themselves clicking the pictures. You will be wrong if you think village roads are bad. The roads of Auroville are very clean, but if you go inside the village, the roads are rocky and dusty.
