If your idea of a good vacation is a holiday away from the hordes, Diu, a beautiful tiny island with a coastal length of 21 Kms, is a pretty safe bet. In many ways Diu is still a land of unknowns. Lying on the west coast of India, the island offers a wonderful holiday destination. Separated from the mainland by a tidal creek, Diu derives its name from the Sanskrit word 'Dweep'. Diu was one of the best sea ports and a naval base between the 14th and 16th Century. For most, the powerful draw is its untouched scenic beauty.
Diu is a union territory of India surrounded on three sides by the Arabian Sea, making it a beautiful beach destination. It is best known as a place that mixes tradition with modernity, which is evident in its architecture, with a number of historical monuments and structures. People here are fun loving and enjoy all seasons with great zeal. Nightlife in Diu is enjoyable and safe.
