Daman Tourism & Travel Guide

Earlier known as Damao or Kalana Pavri (meaning lotus of marshland), this was the settlement of the Portuguese for about 5 centuries. The Portuguese had to later leave the place with the end of the colonial rule in the year 1961. This place was discovered by a Portuguese sailor named Diogo de Mello when he was shipwrecked due to a storm and at last found himself on this coast. The region has witnessed a number of wars and a huge evolution of different types of races and civilizations. This has given rise to the present day Daman which is peaceful and where a variety of cultures have united together. The town lies along the Arabian Sea and is quite laid back. The Damanganga River separates Daman into the Nani Daman in the North and the Moti Daman in the south. There are still a number of Portuguese buildings and churches here which are as beautiful as they were a few decades back.
Best time to visit Daman is from October to March

First we went to Devka Beach. It is a rocky beach.We found many couples and family came here to enjoy. Most of them enjoy in garden near to beach. Its is not swimmer friendly beach due to rocky Geography. You should be caution during high Tide because you can't watch stones that time may cause injuries.
