Tourism in Daman and Diu
Daman, a quaint little settlement, spread over an area of 72 sq.
km, is a picturesque port town, and a popular get-away with city
dwellers. Situated on the west coast, hugged by the Arabian Sea
and swaying casuarinas, Daman has been the home away from home for
the Portuguese, till its liberation in 1961.
Diu, which makes the other half of the Union Territory of Daman
and Diu, is a tiny island measuring less than 40 sq. km, off the
west coast near Saurashtra. Diu is perhaps the most exotic destination
on the west coast of India.
