DIU

Diu is a union territory spanning about 40 sq km off Gujarat’s Saurashtra coast. The Diu fort dominates the townscape from its eastern end. Built in 1535 when the Portuguese first took control. It has an impressive double moat which is worth visiting. During the Christmas the activities are shifted to St.Paul’s Church which was built in 1610 with an elaborate and imposing white façade, carved arched doorway and vaulted interiors. Another church dating from the 17th century, St.Thomas Church houses Diu Museum. The main areas of attraction at Diu are beaches, especially Nagoa beach, Ahmedpur Mandvi and Goghla beaches which also have water sports facilities. There are restaurants along the seafront Road leading to the Fort.
