Only attractions are in Diu...one is Diu fort and 2nd is Naida Caves. Few Canons and Light house is attractive and the way sea waves touches the fort is very exciting.

A breathtaking fort, some part of the fort are littered with bottles etc, some in shambles. But, for the most part its beautiful, the long winded steps take you to one of the topmost points of Diu. The sea looks beckoning, the lighthouse intimidating. Cannons well kept, but local travellers a nuisance as they seem to sit on the cannons,... More

Make sure you have enough time to see entire fort as it will take 2-4 hour to see entire fort and if you want to relax

This fort is surrounded on all sides by the sea, so the views are great. Lots of Portugese cannons at strategic points. View from the lighthouse is the best.

This is a Portuguese fort and quite a good in size. There is no entry tickets and this fort is open till 6:00 pm. There is a free car park available at this place. This fort is just adjacent to the sea. Rather, I would say, three sides are surrounded by sea. This gives a nice view from the top.... More

The huge fort in the mid 15th century commands a magnificient view of the sea on all three sides.There are several big cannons at the top of the fort and a lot of cannon shells lying around.Spread over avast area it can be quite tiring to walk in the hot humid weather. So cover as much as you can..
