Karaikal Beach is a popular beach in the coastal area of Karaikal city, Puducherry. It lies on the Bay of Bengal. The beach is one of the best natural beaches in the region of Southeastern Tamil Nadu.

The Arasalar River forms the estuary near Karaikal Beach. The beach is two kilometers wide. Its accessibility has been made easy by widening the road along the Arasalar River and illumination by sodium vapour lamps. To attract the locals and outside tourists, fountains, children's parks, restaurants and tennis courts have been constructed in the area. Due to these, the Karaikal beach attracts a heavy crowd of people each day.

  • We reached the beach after sunset. The water was far away. It wasn’t well lit and there were just a few guys sitting in the walls near the beach. It is totally avoidable.

  • Excellent beach with a long landscape. Stone pitching is there to walk on and can sit on them for a while. So many eateries available nearby. Park is also available for kids. Sufficient Parking space is also available
  • Nice place but dangerous place to bath and swim , some poisonous fishes there like jelly fish
