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.

  • Feel like a portugal in INDIA. Location of fort is too much awesome. Sea touching feet of fort from 3 direction. Lot of cannons. Beaches are so neat n clean.Not much rules n regulations. Drinkers will love this place😉. Like a mini Goa.Want to go again there...
  • This phone has great 360 degree view of sea. During summer, better go there in evening. Best time would be winter.
  • Nice fort. Good to visit if you like archeology. 2 hours needed to see whole fort. Photography is allowed.
  • Nice fort, you can feel it is not English. Feels more like Goa. Portuguese architecture is worth visit. View of sea and cell is just mind blowing from the top of fort.
  • Worth a visit if you are a history buff. The panoramic view of the Arabian sea will soothe you no end. Lack of maintenance is evident in every frame you capture.
