Although there are no International cheap flights to Daman and Diu, India, there are plenty of easy ways to get to these breathtaking beach getaways. Both are easily accessible from the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai (BOM). To get to Daman from Mumbai, which is about 193 kilometres away, your best bet is ground travel. The quickest option is to take a train (to the Vapi station, which is less than 16 kilometrs from Daman), but there are also options to drive, take a bus, or take a taxi. Buses and taxis are offered for either private parties, or as "shared" transport.
To get to Diu your best bet is to fly. There are no direct flights to Diu from overseas, so fly to the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai (BOM) or the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi (DEL) and then separately add the price to Diu. There are cheap airfares for domestic flights in India, so although it may be more complicated, it could make more sense to go the second route. You can find bus or taxi transportation from the Diu airport.
Cheap flights to Daman and Diu bring visitors to gorgeous locations with some adventurous travel options. Once you arrive at the Vapi train station, you can take a share taxi to get to Daman, which should only take twenty minutes at most and is very inexpensive. Once in Daman proper, there are multiple modes of local transportation. Unmetered taxis and auto rickshaws are the most used modes of transport, and both are offered in private or share mode.
Getting around Diu can be an adventure. Besides the standard auto rickshaws, you can rent a moped, motorcycle, scooter or bicycle to explore the island and its sites. This option is a bit pricier, but if you plan to do a lot in one day it makes sense since the charge is per day plus fuel. There are also buses from the town centre to Nagoa beach, which is the most inexpensive option.
Daman and Diu flights transport tourists to a beachy atmosphere. Diu is the only place in India where you can find a Hoka tree, a specific palm tree brought to the area by the Portuguese from Africa. If you like water sports, be sure to visit Nagao and Ghoglhla Beaches. You must visit the 400-year-old Portuguese-styled St. Paul's Church, which has an elaborate facade, and Diu Fort, which has many of its cannons still standing. Splurge on a guided tour to really learn the history. Make some time to see the Sea Shell Museum, the first of its kind in the world, where approximately 3000 shells are displayed.
Daman is on the mainland, with the Nani and Moti sides of the district separated by the Damanganga river; it also has some beautiful beaches (Dekva and Jampore), though you need to watch out for rocks in the ocean. There are also tons of fun water activities, from the Mirasol Resort and Vaibhav water parks to the water sports offered at Daman Ganga Tourist Complex. For dry activities, check out the Church of Bom Jesus, the St. Jerome Fort and the lighthouse, which are all closely situated to each other.
Daman and Diu flights provide tourists with destinations rich in shopping, dining and nightlife options. Since both Diu and Daman lie along the shore, both offer a large variety of fantastic seafood. A lot of the best restaurants are situated in the hotels, such as the Daman Delite in the Hotel Gurukripa—a vegetarian and non-vegetarian restaurant that has Indian, Mughalai, Chinese, and continental food. The hotels are also great places to get a drink. In Dium don't miss the famous ice cream shop, Shri Ram Vijay, which has been around since 1933. It has great flavours and bottles its own sodas.
At night in Diu don't miss the Gangeshwar Temple, a temple on the water that should be visited in the evening (around high tide) to see the water rush up on the idols (Lingas/Shivlings) to bless them; also check out the evening boat cruise at Diu Bunder that sails from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and offers music and refreshments.
