Diu HotelsSearch Hotel By Name:
A well tuned medley of sky, sea, sand and sun and the harmonious symphony of breeze, beauty and serenity, Diu is the ethereal jewel yet to be fully explored and truly perceived. Constantly caressed by the Arabian Sea, Diu is a tiny little island parked off the south eastern coast of Kathiawar of Gujarat near the Veraval port and the Gulf of Cambay. Formerly furnishing as a Portuguese colony and at the moment a part of the Union territory of Daman & Diu, the Diu Island is cleaved from the mainland Gujarat by a tidal creek. The kaleidoscopic spectrum of local Gujarati (Kathiawari) culture and the antiquated Portuguese ethnicity yields Diu an Indo-European essence quite akin to Goa, yet fundamentally unscathed by the reckless modern commercialization. The tender, tranquil and immaculate beaches of Diu laid against the chimerical backdrops of limestone crags and stony inlets are packed with marshes and saltpans towards their northern surface. Diu Island, basking in the glory of its enchanting milieu and soothing ambiance proposes the perfect tableau for swimming and sun bathing. Diu can be accessed through a mainland enclave of Ghoghla connected with a town of Gujarat named Una. The main river of Diu is Chassi.
The numerous sunny beaches of Diu ornamented with the arresting glory of pervading twilight and setting sun beckons myriads of tourists every year. Approximately 5000 domestic and foreign tourists pay a visit to this blessed land of intact natural pulchritude and unrivalled composure every month. The three most treasured beaches of Diu, Nagoa Beach, Ghoghla Beach and Chakrateerth Beach augment the allure of this Arcadia. Diu is also acclaimed for its affluent birdlife where innumerable migratory birds sojourn chiefly during the months of August and September. Diu is a ‘Promised Land’ and a celestial reward for the human kind. This is a berth where the encumbrance of this frantic world can be lightened for a while and the voice of the waking soul can be perceived. To promote tourism in Diu, Daman & Diu Tourism Board has been undertaking various programs starting from the conservation and maintenance of the historical monuments to the expansion of infrastructure and amenities.
