I have seen forts in Rajasthan and they were too good. This Diu fort is not good fort. There is nothing to see in this fort except view of sea. I shall not visit this fort again. My daughter also didn't like it

The Fort is magnificent and huge along the coast. It is not very well maintained. if maintained well, it has a huge potential. However it is one of the must see places if you are going to DIU as a tourist

Fort Diu is standing as the last ruins of portuguese colonialism at Diu.There is no entry fee.The three storey fort at its top has a few canons.The view of the sea from the fort is however very attractive.

If you are the ones who see for attention to details. You can spend hours exploring this 4 century years old Fort made by Portuguese! Portuguese presence in Diu also happens to be the world longest duration of any colonial rule. 424 years in total
