The entire 1.2 kilometer stretch starts from war memorial and ends at Dupleix Park on the Goubert Avenue. The crushed rock pieces segregate the walking path from the shore.

The raised bed for visitors to walk or sit under the seating areas built offer spectacular viewing of the beach anytime of the day. The tides slapping the crushed rocks are a sight to behold and the roaring of the tides is melancholic.

Many are seen taking a brisk walk, strolling, eating in the kiosks and restaurants or shopping in the stores that have survived for a long time because of Promenade beach alluring appeal. The evening lights, the sea breeze and the changing tone of the water roar in the evening add a different feel to the beach and its surroundings.
