On the sea shore the Diu Fort is very bold and beautiful. It was constructed by Portugese invaders. The Fort is strategically located to have wide view of the sea. Fort has capacity for storing rain water and required ration for a long time.

Its a must visit in Diu. The fort is huge, sea facing structure. It has a jail, light house and few canon which were used in olden days and a beach. From the base of light house one can see the beautiful sea views.
