This place has a great historical value. It has a jail inside. This is a wonderful spot to take pictures. There is a lighthouse which is a must visit for panoramic views.

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 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.
