Must visit this place. Gives glimpse to ancient Portuguese structures. Though maintenance is required. But bastion points are good to see.

the fort is quite old and offers nothing much. just a place to have some snaps. you can climb up the light house and it will offer a good vies of the sea coast. spend an hour at the place and that's about it.

A beautiful fort built by Portugal close to sea. Light house, old cannon and beautiful scene of sea are great attractions for the tourists.It is clean & well maintained.

Good heritage place. Nice 360deg view. You can hire a two wheeler to roam Diu for local site-seeing. Diu airport is also very good.
