The portuguese past of India is closely associated with a Goa, but in the noth of India, in the state of Gujarat there is this picturesque setting, also marked by the Portuguese past. This is a perfect place to unwind and its a pleasant seaside town and a very calm place, peaceful, quiet and away from the chaos of India. It has a small airport, to arrive by plane or bus as I did from Ahmedabad, this is a night bus with beds, so you would arrive at Diu in the morning. In the city you can visit the following attractions for example the cathedral that the Jesuits built there, the fort and castle which is beachfront with stunning views, the market and some of its beaches. Diu is a place rarely visited by Western tourists, and I highly recommended it.
