Diu is one of those places where fun never ends. Right from exciting beaches filled with adrenaline pumping water sport to the endless groves of palm trees gently swaying in the wind singing ancient songs of wilderness and golden sand shifting under your soles, the alternatives are endless. Among the many creative ways to make your Diu visit exciting, some of the chosen ones are:

  • Sightseeing

    The options for sightseeing includes pristine beaches, ancient churches, forts and mansions which are architectural delights in themselves. Do not miss on exploring Diu fort where you get a slice of history as you tumble across littering old cannon balls. It would be an interesting idea to rent a bike so you can not only get to see all the local places, but also acquaint yourself with the sight, sound and smell of the region. The relics and last remnants of the gone imperial regime transports you back to an era gone by.

  • Stone and shells collection

    The deep and dark ocean hides secrets and treasures that a human mind can never imagine. Every now and then it does let you have a glimpse of its vast treasure from the Pandora's box. Who knows when you might come across a beautiful pebble, sea shells and molluscs that are as ancient as the civilization itself. The beauty is that every shell and every rock is unique in itself. They are ideal to collect and make miniature rock gardens in your house and if you are interested in art and craft, make your self jewelleries from the shells. who know, you might get a pearl embedded in one of those shells!

  • Watersports

    A man's attraction towards water is as ancient as his beginning when he develops in the womb. Some like to keep it calm and just enjoy the tingling sensation of sand under their feet while some like to tame the same water. The options are endless. Most of the beaches have various water sport options like boating, yachting, parasailing and snorkeling. Make sure that you have all the required safety gears and you have an experienced trainer with you.

  • Dandiya dance festival

    If you happen to be in Diu around the time of Navratra, you will find the whole placed soaked in the colors of dance and music. Let go of your inhibitions, grab those dandiya sticks, don the colorful Gujarati garba and shake your legs. Dance like no one's watching.

The small town moves at a sluggish pace of its own. Let go of the speed of your daily life and experience the joy of taking it slow, really slow. Pamper yourself to the local cuisine and exotic sea food, get a tan if you feel like, swim and just own the world. The amazing beauty and soft sunlight makes it a perfect place for photography. So make sure you travel with your camera. You wouldn't want to miss on a thing
