Located in the western part of India, Daman and Diu are two pieces of lands geographically positioned in two different regions; Daman which is one of the districts of the territory is located along the Arabian Sea on the east of Kalem River near the Valsad district of Gujarat. Further, Dmanganga River divides Daman district into two parts. Because of the coastal location, the climate of Daman remains moderate throughout the year.

Second district, Diu is located in the Arabian Sea south of Kathiawar coast. Likewise, Diu is an island south of Veraval Port of Gujarat and it is connected with the mainland of Gujarat with bridge.

Historically, along with Goa and Dadra and Nagar Haveli, Daman and Diu was the part of Portuguese and became part of the Republic of India on December 19, 1961. Until 1987, Goa and Daman and Diu were administered as single territory of India by central government, but on May 30, 1987, it became an independent Union Territory of India.

Tourism in Daman and Diu


The two districts Daman and Diu, geographically located in two different regions and relatively two different climates and landscapes; Daman is the part of mainland of coastal Gujarat and Diu is a tiny island located south of Port of Veraval at the altitude of about 30 metres are fascinating points for the tourism. Arabian Sea landscapes facilitate a tranquil environment, which are pretty invigorating for the tourists.

Among the significant tourist’s attractions, Diu fort, a water house (the Panikotha) is one of the most significant attractions for the tourists. Gangeshwar Temple (dedicated to Lord Shiva) is beautifully designed temple. In addition, St. Paul and St. Francis of Assisi are the churches that reflect beautiful architecture. Interestingly, these religious places are located nearby the Jallandhar Beach.

Further, Nagoa beach, which is shaped like a horseshoe has a picturesque landscape and popular for the tourists; tourists love to spend their evening on this beach. On top of this, for the bird watchers, it is heaven; here you can find dozens of species of birds. In addition, between the months of August and February, the place also welcomes migratory birds. So, Daman and Diu are of course small regions located in two different places but very much popular.
