Diu - The Destination

   
A blend of sun, sand and sea, the Union Territories of Daman and Diu lie on the southern borders of Gujarat. Seen from the window of an airplane, Diu looks like a desert. A sparse range of palm trees and shrubs burn under the relentless sun of a perpetually cloudless sky. Yet, Diu is idyllic and lends itself as the next-to-perfect getaway for the hassled urban crowd. Winding streets, narrow paved by-lanes and criss-crossing paths bordered by vintage houses and Portuguese scaffoldings; together with markets throwing their heavy smell of fish , flowers  and vegetables into the air that rings with the incessant

Daman Diu Beaches

babble of men and women - all out to sell just about anything.

A place which is forever a favourite tourist destination, Diu resounds in history. The wind beaten and somewhat arid island is full of quarries built by the Portuguese rulers. Known for her beaches and exotic liquors, this island is a tourist's haven for escaping the cacophony of routine life. Western cuisine has of course not left Diu out of its clutches but it's the Indian versions of seafood that we recommend. The banana lassi's (preparation from curd, a sweet diluted drink) are as cooling as the beer; the prawns as delectable as the pancakes.


Be it the rich historic past or the quaint songs of the anglers, everything in Diu helps in creating a paradise for one in search of serenity. The forts and churches of the past, and the pubs of today, come together to create an extraordinary ambience of nostalgia and pleasure.

History of Diu


Like Goa and even Daman, Diu was a Portuguese colony until it was taken over by India in 1961. Between 14th and 15th centuries, Diu remained a significant trading post and naval base from which the Ottoman Turks controlled the shipping routes in the northern part of the Arabian sea. After their liberation in 1961, the three were part of the Indian Union Territory of Goa, Daman and Diu. While Goa was granted full statehood in 1987, Daman and Diu were separated from it and turned into an independent Union Territory.
