lies the island of Diu, a sensuous blend of sun, sand and deep blue sea.
Diu is situated 125 kms from Junagadh.
It is one of the finest beaches in India, and has earned fame across the
world. The tourists who keep falling in love with it have spread its name
all over the world.
Diu Island is a real pleasant surprise across the bridge from Ahmedpur-Mandvi. Lying on the offshore of Gujarat mainland, minutes offshore from the mainland of Gujarat, yet has the feel of being like on a Mediterranean Island. Nothing can quite prepare you for the treasure-trove of Diu.
THE PORTUGUESE SETTLEMENT:
Diu reflects the Portuguese colonial period architecture like the churches, public buildings, bungalows with pastel shaded walls, truss roofs, terraces, galleries, clean wide roads, neat clean beaches etc.
Three Portuguese churches, one out of which has been converted into a museum housing some rare Portuguese artifacts, also dot the island. Another cynosure at Diu is the Fort of Diu, an imposing statement of power.
City bus transport is available as well as various city sight seeing buses are available from Veraval.
