Local Jail(Current) is also located there , It has sea almost all around and gives spectacular view of sea towards west , though area around is clean but still can be developed with many information boards or may be for light and sound show.

The fort was the highlight of the stay in Diu and it a must see.. The boats docked on the banks of the river look amazing at sunset as the waves beat against the walls of the city

Great location, surrounded by sea water all around. Turned into ruins but still can charm you. Very picturesque. The panoramic view of the sea and Diu city is mesmerising.
