Introduction

Diu is a city in Diu district in the union territory of Daman and Diu, India. It is an island lying off the south coast of Gujarat's Kathiawar peninsula, separated from the mainland by a tidal creek. A beautiful blend of sun, sand and sea, Diu is a God's gift to those in quest of a blessed land where the weary weight of this unintelligible world can, for a while, be lightened and the waking soul can hear the music of the nature. This tiny island of breeze, beauty and serenity situated off the southern tip of the Saurashtra (Kathiawad) peninsula of Gujarat, lapped by the Arabian Sea, is a picture of calmness with superb beaches and a fascinating history.
