"Diu, a nice recommended place" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 4 days ago
Diu always comes as a combined place with Daman, but only when we say it. Physically the two lie about 350 kms apart along the Gujarat Coastline. Having been linked by ferry ways at some point during colonial India the route is no longer accessible to normal people except defence due to security threats. I found Diu refreshing, much more quieter and peaceful than its hippy Goan counterpart. The place is small with a beach line of 14 kms and can be seen in a day. But you would love to soak up the weather and calm in this cute and clean place. Government here has done sample for boosting tourism. Safety and availability of hotels. Diu is crowded over weekends by neighbouring Gujarat simply due to easy availability of booze. You can explore the little beaches, the old remnants of the Portuguese era, visit churches, or just spend evenings at the bays. I would recommend it totally over Goa any day. You get amazing sea food was very affordable prices and so is the drink.

"Diu , the mini Goa" new review

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 4 days ago
Yeah, people call it mini Goa. It pursue the history of Europeans. Portuguese culture their forts and cathedral, beaches and wines that's all you can experience here. Wonderful location with scenic beauty. Colonies and churches leave the significance of an European culture. Beaches are beautiful but its recommended to be in winters only.

Places to visit are:- Diu Fort, Diu Church, Jalandhar Beach, Ins Khukri memorial Nagoa Beach and others. I found that the liquor sale is licensed here, you will find every restaurant serve wine bear and cigar etc. You can reach here from Ahmedabad by bus an overnight journey. Water sports are organized in winter season. Please do carry sunburn if you are visiting in summers like me.

"Awesome Place during winter" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 7 days ago
Diu is an islet having a mix culture of Indian & Portuguese. Visit here during Diu Festival & be ready to pay also. You can feel the flavor of Gujarat also while dinning at some places. Beaches are very good here, Diu fort sunset point, Gangeshwar Temple worth to see. Nagoa beach is really awesome. People of Diu are warm, friendly, peaceful & fun loving. Night life is enjoyable & safe here.

"Similar Experience to Goa!" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 7 days ago
The best part of it is the less crowd, there are many beaches to enjoy on. Even the water sports are same as Goa, but what's nice is that its not at costly as Goa, so you can go for the same sport twice here in the same price that you would pay there. Naida caves acts as a visual aid to teach children practically about what they learn in school. The roads and tourist spots are kept very clean by the local authorities. Hotel Radhika too is a very beautiful and big hotel there with very good variety of sea food and many activities to be done there, very good service too.

"If not tried Goa, try Gujarat" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Well this place is mainly for revelers who come here for guzzling alcoholic beverages being only free zone(island) in state of Gujarat. Families enjoy the sea shore games while men have ample of time to go high Being close to Sasan Gir, tour operators include this in the package.

Hoped to enjoy some good cheap sea food but common restaurants run short of stock for fresh ones. If one has to enjoy must try out expensive joints which we were not interested as we enjoy the same price at home town. Water sport available at a price similar to in Goa. But Goa Live is deprived here. The beaches can become some times risky (safety as sun sets in) with drunk rouges as right on the beach Beer bars are located but security is lacking. No Life guards seen from Govt side except at areas where water sports are conducted and that too vanishes as it stops when sun goes down.

Other that Beach one can see Portuguese Church, Diu Fort, Kala Pani Jail, Rock formation caves, Light House. Enough for one day visit. Any body from Mumbai will recollect this place as Bandra creek area.

"Beautiful beaches with sea food"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
It is an amazing place to be. Nagoa beach was the best in the city. If you have an suv drive to the top of the hill in Nagoa beach to see sunset and sunrise. It is an awe inspiring view from there. Try sea food from the beach restaurant. If you are there you shouldn't miss the drive from diu to Porbandar. Try homely food from a French couple settled in Diu. It is in Diu city. Do not mistake Daman for Diu as Google maps shows Daman as Diu. Daman is the not that great place in Gujarat.

"Awesome place & must visit"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Diu is a town in Diu district in union territory of Daman and Diu, India. The town of Diu lies at the eastern end of Diu island and known for it's fortress. It is also fishing town. I have visited this place many times. There are three churches. Lord Shiva's Temple is located on Gangeshvar coast. Local transport available from Una Gujarat. This city has also domestic Airport. The Nagoa beach is one of the best beach in Diu. I liked most this beach. The people of the Diu spoken language like Gujarat, Portuguese, English and Hindi. There are many good hotels and restaurant in Diu but I recommend Hotel Apna because good quality of vegetarian and non-veg. Foods. The atmosphere is very nice. The people of Diu is also good and loving persons. I suggested that if you are near Gujarat, I would say visit Diu once. While you are visiting Diu, you can also visit other places of Gujarat coastline.
