The fort is worth a visit. You get a good view of the city from parts of the fort. Don't forget to go up the tower for a great view of the sea and the city.

Diu Fort is a very famous in not for diu but all India. This is a very old fort situated in Diu. Lot's of movie shooting done from this fort. One "JAIL" is situated in below of this fort but presently you don't see this JAIL.

Diu fort is good sight seeing location where people can spend more than 2 hours. For proper maintenance of DIU Fort Tourism department should start charge some minimum charges for keeping the fort clean and tidy.

As being a sports team, we went there hiking from the bus stop. 2 things to look forward to 1. The boundaries of the fort with the view of gigantic sea. 2. the armory chambers, you would love taking action shots there

We get a feel of the presence of the PORTUGUESE. Well maintained monument. Flowering trees in the premises add to its beauty.
