There are many highpoints in the fort that give a very nice view of the ocean. The light house is a treat to watch. A part of the fort is still used as a prison.

This building dates back many centuries but was in use until the Portugese handed Diu over to India. It was interesting seeing the provision of water within the fort and understanding the levels of fortification and moat which made the building almost impregnable.

The fort at Diu has some good views but needs to be maintained. Visited by most of the tourists. Closes by 5pm , so be on time. Free Parking available. Nice place to click memorable pics
