Serenity Beach is outside of Pondicherry. By auto it takes about 1/2 hour. You zoom through the town and it takes you out towards Auroville. The beach is a welcoming sight for the traveler who just needs some peace. You can watch the fishermen bring in the fish, take a walk, and soak in the sights. There are some cute little cafes to stay cool in and have some awesome beach snacks. I actually really enjoyed the tofu burger and french fries at the What’s Up Cafe. They also have amazing lime sodas. You can sit back relax, take a surf class, or do absolutely nothing, and just watch the day pass you by.
