A relaxed and very less populated Portuguese colony, Diu is famous for its historic forts, churches, Hindu temples and seafood. Garnished with beautiful and secluded beaches, Diu also offers a variety of water sports to the adventurers. There are several great places to visit in Diu like Fort Diu, Naida Caves, St. Paul's Church, Jalandhar Beach, Chakratirth Beach and Pani Kotha. 
Diu, located on the outskirts of Gujarat, is one of the oldest Portuguese colonies of the world. Known for being one of the least populated districts of India, it is also a major fishing town popular for the delectable seafood. Nagoa beach and the lighthouse located there are two of the most famous tourist attractions which are frequented by large numbers of tourists. Water sports like parasailing, paragliding and skiing are offered on a large scale appealing to the adventure lovers. This is an ideal destination for a relaxed and calm trip for couples and families alike.

The name Diu is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘dweep’ meaning island. More than anything else, Diu is a place to laze around, spot migratory birds, read a book or explore the city and its bylanes on a bicycle. If you are not fond of bikes, you can hop into an autorickshaw. The imposing stone Fort of Diu (to the west of Diu town) is the tourist’s password, meaning you start exploring the place from here. Skirted by the sea on three sides, it stands tall like an island of courage with menacing canons atop, aiming in different directions. You will still find a couple of mounds of iron shells inside. Rising from between the expansive structure is a lighthouse, which gives the fort an air of mystery, especially during winter nights when there is fog and the wick of the lighthouse gas flame grows weak.
