Diu fort clearly is remarkable. Think of the bygone era and you will realize how rulers then fortified there territory. The Indian Ocean abound fort is a must-visit place. Today, the entrance has a small Shiva Temple and houses the local jail.

If you have visited a fort earlier in your life, this is not a surprise. It is like any old fort that you get to see. BUT, the scenic beauty captured around this place is a memorable. Surrounded by the sea view, the tree-shades, you get to click some of the best Pictures in your life

Diu fort offers amazing sights of Arabian sea where you can click some beautiful pictures. It is accessible by road and parking is just besides the fort. You can climb upto base of light house easily from where an amazing view of Arabian sea and middle ground is offered. You cannot complete your Diu visit without visiting fort.

It is worthwhile going to see if your in Diu but the lack of information and the rubbish everywhere wouldn't make me rush back for a second visit.

The fort is nearby the main city... Not that much big but has a great historic value for the people of Diu. Now this place is being used as a jail to keep the convicts and at the same time some part of the fort is open for the tourists too. Now that's multi tasking. But the view from this... More
