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.

  • Big fort heritage from Portuguese ruler. It will take one full day to explore full fort. It is advisable to go along with food & water, you will not get anything within fort during off seasons. All over good & great experience to visit it. Especiall attraction is jail situated in mid of sea.
  • Amazing... Thoughtful construction by the Portuguese... Lots of cannons... Amazing views... Morning and evenings are better time to visit... No entrance fees..
  • Diu, an alternative for Goa, relatively small. A must visit Island for bachelor. Not worth staying more than one day as an tourist. Diu fort has wonderful views all around, beautiful pathways takes us to the past of this place. Carry water if u are travelling in summer.
  • Very good place from the time of Portuguese rule. You can see amazing Arabian sea from the any point of fort which make better view point. Also you may find some foreigner public mostly. Must visit place.
  • Probably the best place to hangout in Diu. A big fort built by Portuguese right at the corner of sea. You can see old canons here. The view of sea from different corners of the fort is very nice. You can spend about two hours here. Best to visit in early morning or evening hours, as it gets hot during day.
