The island of Diu is the blissful confluence of silver sands and the golden sun. You can’t miss the tiny district of Daman & Diu, especially because of its fabulous architecture and laid back lifestyle. Situated off the southern tip of the Saurashtra (Kathiawad) peninsula of Gujarat and lapped by the Arabian Sea, Diu is a picturesque island for those in quest of a blessed land. It’s replete with majestic beaches, whitewashed fishing cottages and excellent roads for you to ride along the coast with the wind blowing in your hair.
The ancient island of Diu is known to have been ruled by many well-known kings and dynasties during the prehistoric, ancient and medieval times. Bits of the island are reminiscent of Portuguese history, because it was a Portuguese colony until 1961. Historically an important trading post and naval base, Diu is a destination for those who like to seek, not just places, but souls.
