Portuguese Settlement

You find Diu to have some different architecture as it was settled by the Portugese. There is a nice fort right near the main town. There are quite a few white sand beaches. Ask the locals about safety before going in though. When I was in Diu there were alot of sea snakes dead on the beach!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great Beaches!
  • Cons:To many Sea Snakes!
  • In a nutshell:Great place to relax!

    I came across a few sea snakes in Goa too! Did you make it to the National Park in Gujurat?

    Sea snakes are the most venomous in the world! I bet you didn't go swimming here.
