Tour Diu Fort to discover the rich history of a colonial-era structure built by the Portuguese in the 16th century. Know for its fine ocean views, the fort sits on the coast of Diu Island and is separated by a tidal creek from the mainland. As you explore the old structure, pay special attention to its arches and bastions, surrounded by the sea on three sides. You can also see a lighthouse, an array of cannons, as well as three churches built in the same time period.

Where to stay in Diu

In the main town of Diu, you'll find a number of mid-range and budget hotels close to the water, and a few more atmospheric, old colonial buildings converted into hotels and guesthouses along the streets further inland. If looking for beachside luxury, take a peak at Ghoghla and Nagoa beaches, with each of these stretches of sandy coastline housing a set of resorts, with onsite pools, restaurants, air-conditioned rooms, and spas. Make sure to reserve your room in advance, particularly around festival time, as Diu really isn't that big and can get overwhelmed with visitors.
