Brief on my Visit to Diu : I had been on a 15 days Road-trip in the Unexplored Interiors of Gujarat covering the Places of Gir Wildlife Sanctuary and Diu was a Part of it.

Coming down from the Una-Diu Highway : We started Island and Beach Hopping . First was Being the Diu Fort after which…fort leads to the Roads in the interiors… and those Interiors again leads you to Beaches, Beaches and more Beaches.
