Good place to get a feel of Portuguese history. Not properly maintained. Lot of garbage all around the place. Should have proper marking, details about the history.

When visiting for a few days, we decided to visit some places in town. We came to the fort. We were impressed when we started walking around. The pathways inside were amazing. The top viewpoint was just great.

Fort is now in shamble condition. The only thing good about it is that it is by the side of sea so you can enjoy sea while there.

The view from the fort was awesome. Fort was surrounding oceanic boundaries therefore it had canons at all the levels. The light house there had a beautiful picturesque and it was refreshing as well due to cold breeze

Awesome location on the shores of the Arabian Sea... Some beautiful photography spots available from inside the fort. Climb the Light house for a good view of Diu.
