  • Fort is as raw as you can think about its walls and all dimensions it was built by Portuguese. From there, the whole city has a magnificent view and just you simply can spend 1-2 hours there.  more »

  • Must visit place in Diu. Its a historical and cultural mirror of Portuguese times. It is almost half day activity to visit every section of this fort. Port has many section one of the section is jail which is also used as Diu Jail currently. It also has a old church. All the sections are preserved in its historical shape and make. As this is half day activity so you need to walk for a long time so it also provide you good physical exercise.
  • Diu might not be the most popular beach destination in India but that’s precisely what makes it such a good option if you’re looking for some privacy and isolation. That doesn’t mean that the beaches are totally deserted either: adrenaline junkies will find adequate facilities for water sports and there are a number of restaurants and cafes where you can enjoy a quiet repast. Apart from beaches, Diu also tops the chart of famous places to visit in Diu.
