Diu Tourism & Travel Guide

Diu is very unlike India's other beach destinations. Located on a small island linked by a bridge to Gujarat’s southern coast, it is quiet, clean, full of Portuguese history and free of tourist-traps. Life on this small, sleepy town begins at around 5am, and by 9pm, streets are mostly deserted. Diu is a favourite with writers and artists, who often come here to enjoy the silence, found almost everywhere on this tiny island. But that doesn’t mean it is devoid of things to do. To explore Diu, you can rent a bicycle for a small cost and move around at your own pace. The Diu Fort and the view that it offers of the Arabian Sea is an unmissable adventure. There are also the Naida Caves, full of a labyrinth of paths and rock staircases, making for a thrilling experience. Evenings can be spent strolling around on the unique Gomtimata Beach, and then in the bylanes of Diu sampling the delectable seafood.
