I have seen forts in Rajasthan and they were too good. This Diu fort is not good fort. There is nothing to see in this fort except view of sea. I shall not visit this fort again. My daughter also didn't like it

The Fort is magnificent and huge along the coast. It is not very well maintained. if maintained well, it has a huge potential. However it is one of the must see places if you are going to DIU as a tourist
