So you’ve built sandcastles, scoured the shore for seashells, played Frisbee, picnicked on the sands, and are now wondering what else to do when you hit the beach?
The next time you visit Paradise Beach, be prepared to ride along the seashore before splashing into the backwaters for a quick cruise! Thanks to Pondy Adventures, a new enterprise promoting adventure and off-beat tourism, visitors can ride an all-terrain-vehicle (ATV) at Chunnmbar. The enterprise’s first activity, launched in collaboration with Puducherry Tourism, promises to be fun. “The amphibious ATVs, imported from Canada, are the first of their kind in India,” says Christopher Prashanth, chief operating officer, Pondy Adventures. “You can coast over grassy stretches and sand dunes before plunging into the waters, all in the span of a 20 minute ride.”
The five-seater ATVs are available everyday on the beach adjoining Windflower Resort from 8 am to 1 pm and thereafter till 6 pm at Paradise beach. The morning rides can be combined with a multi-cuisine buffet lunch at the resort (for a combo price of `999). Life jackets and helmets will be provided in the vehicle which will be steered by a trained operator.
Pondy Adventures has more exciting activities up its sleeve — the next would be zorbing on Paradise Beach.
At `300 per person; minimum two to maximum five persons per ride. Details: 9489358058
