DESTINATION 

Daman

Started at 1400 hours from my home in my private vehicle towards Daman. Weather was pleasant with cool breeze and light rainfall to keep the temperature down. The journey took us around 4 hours including Food breaks and Fuels stop.

Day 1

There is a lot of rush till you cross Ghodbander Signal and join the main highway. Expect a lot of heavy trucks on the way. Road condition is Okay-ish.

Ample Hotels and Petrol Pumps are available on both sides of the road to keep your and the cars tummy happy.

For my stay, I booked Silver Wave Resort situated near Devka Beach. Although the view from the resort is astonishing but contrary the beach is not worth visiting. The hotel is quite spacious with a nice big lawn and swimming pool. Swimming pool has a view of sea in the background. The rooms are also nice and quite comfortable. I specifically booked a room with sea view which is couple of bucks costlier than other room, but the view was definitely worth it. Food is a bit costly out here. There is one more issue - proper coverage of internet. Although the hotel has free Wifi, but still one might face issues.

DEVKA BEACH

It was around walking distance from my hotel. Construction work is going on on the beach and it has made the beach dirty. The water is a lot muddy and has big rocks near to beach which are more visible during low tide. So, wouldn't recommend going into the water. But, don't miss the Sunset from the beach.

MOTI DAMAN FORT

The entry to the fort is a very narrow gate which looks amazing. Just outside the fort there is a vintage tank kept for tourists to click some nice pictures. Surprisingly the whole perimeter of the fort is well-maintained till today. There are couple of old buildings inside the fort which have been converted into government offices and are not open for tourists. One can spot a new lighthouse and sea from top of fort walls.

Day 2

JAMPORE BEACH

It was around 10 minute drive from the fort. I would strongly recommend to take the costal route which runs parallel to the beach. It is very scenic almost straight road with beautification work done along the way. Once you reach the beach, there are couple of roadside food-stalls and 2 or 3 hotels out there. Kids can enjoy Camel and Horse ridding out here. Clicked some nice photographs and headed back to the hotel.
