  • It is very beautiful fort with maintained cleanliness. It's a fort with light houses churches and storage rooms surrounded by the sea. You can take a awesome view of panikotha an architecture made in middle of the waters formerly used to be a jail in 1500 century. You can take photographs inside as well as other photographers are also present at very cheap price and give you instant good quality photos. It's a family place. Parking is available. Different food stalls are present outside the fort.
  • A Heritage & massive Portuguese fort with historical values. Good Location and you can have beautiful scene. If you are going to Diu don’t miss to visit this place. You can click lovely photographs from the top of fort and light house. Amazing place neat and clean. Overall a good tourist place for the route, scenery and waterfalls.
  • Diu fort is well located at a distance of approximately 150km from Mumbai. Now a days it's very clean and well maintained. Surrounded by water on three sides it's an beautiful scene to watch especially at sunrise and sunset time. There is also plush greenery nearby fort.
  • Nice fort to see at upper side there are few tops (weapon used to throw golla)over there but few people here don't maintain its dignity by climbing up those tops but there is many parts of Fort Worth seeing and visiting there is jail in middle of water which you can see clearly by that fort. Here by I have posted two photos of fort and one of the jail which I had talked about Thank you
  • Diu Fort is a Historic place and an architectural symbol of Portugal Dynasty. Though Diu fort has not been maintained to an extent but still you will find many signs of their Portugal people. Best family and friend outing. Do visit the fort in the Morning since by afternoon the atmosphere gets warmer.

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.
