You have to go to Rajkot, around 4-5 hours, and then from Rajkot to Veraval.

Trains which I recommend are:

Dwarka to Rajkot:

If you are going on Wed, Thu or Sat:

22905 OKHA HOWRAH EXP i P DWK 05.55 RJT 10.40

For other days of the week see this link: There are several trains, depending on the day of the week.

And from Veraval to Rajkot

16334 VERAVAL EXPRESS P RJT 14.31 VRL 18.50

Hotels in Dwarka

Bansi - 02892 235606 , Hotel Damji - 02892 234000 , Hotel Guruprerna - 02892 234512

Lots of other hotels also but don't have contact details.

Diu Hotels

Fort Road

Hotel Apana , Hotel Apaar - 02875 255389

Nagoa Beach Area

Hotel Gangasagar ( a family run hotel but its bang on the beach - waves during high tides hardly 25 steps away ) 02875 252249

Resort Hoka ( google it - they have a website ) again a family run hotel but more upmarket than Gangasagar. 2 mins. walking distance from the beach

Radhika Resort ( Most upmarket place in Nagoa beach area across the road from Gangasagar ) 1/2 min walk from the beach . google the name - they too have a website

for more details and contact numbers, click on diutourism.co.in/

To reach Diu from Veraval you have two options

Hire a cab from Veraval for a drop off to Diu or catch the Gujarat Road Transport bus for Una or Diu ( to reach Diu one has to go via Una )

There are no express or non stop bus services so its advisable to check at the enquiry counter before boarding the bus ( avg. travel time - By Bus approx 3-4 hrs depending on the route and stops. By Cab - approx 2.5 hrs because the road conditions are bad )

For return to Ahmedabad from Diu, the most practical option is to book yourself in the coach services which ply between Diu and Ahmedabad ( mostly overnight )

Most of the buses start from Una ( 13 kms away from Diu ) and there are one or two services which start from the Diu bus station

One name i am aware of is Paavan Travels - Ahmedabad. Daily services and good coaches ( google and check for contact number )

Enjoy your trip
