Diu Fort is crowed by typical visitors and nothing special except cinematic view of sea from the top of fort. Its too hot generally in summer and jail is still operative. No guides, but rely upon google map

It was steaming hot even in the morning, it's at the sea side but, no cool breeze or comfort. Scenes are ok, couldn't​ dare to visit the light house part. Best thing is they are trying to maintain it, you can see in the photo....More

Generally fascinated by forts and Mehals but DIU Fort was a bit thumbs down. Way too crowded and there is literally nothing to see in except gives a great view to take photographs

Good place to visit go after 3 pm. Do not go in sun not lot of tress or shades. Jail inside is still functional and it is not allowed to see the jail. No guides available so internet is best to gain some info.
