Diu - its fortress and old Portuguese Cathedral

One of the most attractive tourist destinations in India, Diu is a mesmerizing blend of sea, sand and sun. An off -shore island on the western coast, off the Gulf of Cambay, Diu is separated from the coast by a pretty narrow channel on its northern side. The ancient Portuguese Fort, magnificent churches, the lovely beaches, azure sea waters, thrilling water sports, clean environment, and a great historical background and hospitable people make Diu one of its kind destinations. Earlier, Diu was a key trading post and naval base from where various rulers exercised control over the shipping routes in the northern part of the Arabian Sea. Diu was under the subjugation of many well-known kings and dynasties earlier. Until 1961, it remained under the control of Portugal. Now a part of the Union Territory of India, the tiny island of Diu was carved out from Goa in 1987.
