"Do the Diu" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
Diu a holiday destination for all. Known for its beaches. In this section it stands to its rank. Very calm and clean beaches. Nice place for any one who wants to relax. Above all Diu fort is nice place to visit. Located on rock next to sea you can enjoy cool breeze from sea along with its scenic beauty and historical importance. Good place for bird watching. Can find lot of variety. Better to have your own vehicle.
One thing this place lacks is Beach hotels and shacks. This would have made it perfect holiday location.

"Romantic with religious place"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Diu is famous for his beach, museum, fort and religious place also. A very nice romantic place you have to spend minimum one day to explore Diu. A very nice Diu museum, Diu fort and Diu church which you have to spend a lot of time with family. As I started journey from Somnath by hire a car if any one is hiring a car please ask only local person don't ask to travel desk of the hotel they charge high. And you can bargain local person. I reach in morning time and first visit Diu fort please carry your water bottle because you have to spend 2-3 hours minimum. They we go to Diu museum, Diu church, ghogla beach, INS Khukery, naida cave, gangeshwar mahadev and at last we visited Nagoa beach. A full day trip really a nice experience.

"A good destination for weekend trips-Diu"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted Jul 28, 2016
Diu is a good place to visit for relaxing in weekends. It's better to book hotels in advance. Bike is a good option for local sightseeing (without been drunk). For family it's bit difficult for local travel if you do not have your own car. You can find few autos to travel.
Travel to other cities like Una or Somnath is very difficult as only few buses run on scheduled time only. Preferably arrange your own car.
People should visit 2/3 places minimum in Diu like Nagoa beach, Diu fort, Museum etc.

"Awesome place"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jun 9, 2016
Diu is very good destination for holidays whether you are with family, friends or with your soulmate. We spent whole day in Diu island, fort, temple, beaches all have wonderful view. After whole day enjoyment we came back to Somnath and attend light show. If you plan for Gir previously book your entry online otherwise less chance to get entry same day. Very good trip of Gujarat.

"A beautiful Beach Holiday"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Jun 7, 2016
We have reached Diu from Gir Forest and reached there at night 8:30 pm. Our hotel was just stone throwing distance from famous Nagoa Beach. So after dinner we had spent some beautiful time at beach. It is very safe. Next day morning after breakfast we have visited few sightseeing which are important others are time waste. Except Nagoa beach two or three other beaches are there like Jalandhar beach... All roads of Diu basically goes side by side Arabian Sea... Diu fort is excellent, Naida Cave was nice, then Gangeshwar temple and INS Khukri is a must visit and St. Thomas Church.. If you are interested about marine life then visit Sea Shell Museum near Diu Airport.

"Good break from the crowd"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted May 16, 2016
We visited Diu for 4 days in May 2016. We took a train till Veraval from Mumbai and then hired a cab for 2K to Nagaon beach. We had booked Radhika Resort for 2 nights and 1 night at Kostamar Resort through makemytrip. It was very hot and humid as expected in Diu. So we planned everything for evenings and early mornings. The Radhika Resort is just across the Nagoa beach and is a great place to stay with great pool and service.

Our first thought after entering the beach was that we would get something nice to eat in the stalls near to the beach. But to our disappointment they serve only coconut water and other cold drinks. There is only steamed and masala corn to eat. Unlike Goa nothing great to eat in the stalls (no fish too).

There is Hoka Island Villa nearby which offers good food options at reasonable prices and the place has a good offbeat look. There is Jalaram Parotha near to Radhika which is also worth trying for Gujarati thalis. Radhika's food is expensive and not worth the money. Heard that Hotel Apna in Diu city is good but didn't get time to try it.

We hired a cab for 5 hours through a travel agent. He charged us Rs. 1200 and took us to Shell museum, church, Diu fort (closes at 6), Ghoghla beach and Naida caves. Diu fort and Naida caves are good places to visit in the evenings. Don't expect the fort as shown in the advertisements in TV. But you need to walk a lot. Nagao beach has few water sports options. We didn't try them.

Please take all necessary medicines and things which you need to visit Diu, especially if you plan to stay near the beach. Because there are no shops around to buy anything. There was only one medical shop in the city and for that we had to spend 200 bucks one way. On weekends the beaches are very crowded.

Overall, a short stay at Diu would be relaxing and good break from crowd.

"Good beaches to take a break"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Apr 12, 2016
We visited Diu for a day while on our way back to Indore after a week long vacation covering Dwaraka, Porbandar, Gir and Somnath. We visited end of March so it had started getting hot already. Definitely this was not the best time to visit this place. Nevertheless it was not too bad either. In the morning we visited the fort. It was nice place near sea and enjoyed views and the fort itself. After that we visited Gangeshwar temple. A very small and simple temple but unique in the sense that sea waves enters into temple and touches the Shiv linga.

After lunch we went to Nagoa beach. Lot of activities including water sports. Enjoyed few hours just before the sunset. Then we moved to the sunset beach which is a quite and small beach. Not many people visit this and we watched Sunset in a very peaceful environment. Overall it was we had a great day!!
