Diu history

Good heritage place in Diu with long history, Gives a very nice view of the Arabian sea on one side and the city on the other. Must visit when in Diu.

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.

You can get best of views of Diu from this place. Diu tourism must focus on Cleanliness and Maintenance as well, Most adventurous thing of this place were those Dark Caves where we were so frightened to get in.
