Probably the most popular area of Diu, this is a beautiful beach with trees lined on the shores. Due to its popularity it lacks a little maintenance but the sea is quieter than the rest and thus a good option for swimming. You can also enjoy a number of water sports here. The gangasagar Bar very close to the beach serves very good beer and it is ideal to cool down with a mug of beer and then lunch after you've had a long day and the sea waves have made you hungry.

Obviously the beaches are not to be missed. The most popular beaches are Ghoghla and Nagoa, around which a few hotels are clustered. Chakratirath is more secluded, while the Jalandhar beach being in a government area, with no restaurants or conveniences for travellers, is visited, but not a popular hangout. In fact, it is only the Nagoa beach which has decent adjacent facilities for tourists; and while both Ghoghla and Nagoa have limited water sports, like jet-skiing, parasailing, speed boat, the banana boat and water scooters, both Gomtimata and Chakratirath are basically surf and sand. Rides are available from around 10 am to just before sunset Each ride lasts 2 to 3 minutes and is priced at Rs.500 per person. Dolphin spotting safaris are available at Goghla beach, and are priced at about Rs.2000 per boat, which accommodates 5 to 6 persons.
It is Nagoa - Just feel itNagoa Beach is famous for water-sport activities such as Parasailing, Jet Ski, Banana Ride & much more. The prices start from Rs.200 to Rs.1500 depend on the type of activity. Sometimes, Scuba Diving is also available but it is expensive there. It could be a more adventurous trip if you capture some water rides & parasailing pictures into your camera.
Diu, aptly tagged "Isle of calm" as part of Diu tourism's advertising campaign, exudes peace and serenity, as one explores this tiny island. We walked down the various beaches of Diu barefoot every evening for the four days that we spent here. For an island so small it has many beaches each with its unique identity.

The beach is 20 mins drive from Diu. The driving in itself is a thrilling experience as the road curves along the sea giving you the stunning view of the ocean and thick coconut groves. The beach is beautifully sprinkled with giant trees and shacks which offers some seriously good food. The beach is uncrowded still lively. An evening with your partner with some chilled beer and stunning sunset is exactly what you'll get here.
One cannot expect to experience the beaches in Goa. But still one can have fun at Nagoa Beach. The water here is filled with lots of sand and mud, hence if anyone is prepared to have fun in water, please carry extra set of clothes.
Its the beach where everyone goes. You can go n chill for while. But it wont be calm. You can find a few water sports at this one.
Lots of resorts & hotels around Nagoa beach gave us an ample amount of choices to choose from. It's the most crowded of all the beaches in Diu. This beach offers adventure water sports to it's tourists. The crowd though is mainly concentrated around the areas where the beach restaurants are located. A little further down the beach and you find the quiet sounds of the waves, soothing.
Even if you miss every sight to see in Diu, coming to Nagao beach and Ghoghla beach acts as a tranquiliser much needed after a hard day of work. Under the shade of unique groves of Hokka trees, a pillow made of sand and a promenade along the waterfront was an exceptionally relaxing experience.
