For over 450 years, the coastal enclaves of Daman (Portuguese: Damão) and Diu on the Arabian Sea coast were part of Portuguese India, along with Goa and Dadra and Nagar Haveli. Goa, Daman and Diu were incorporated into the Republic of India on 19 December 1961, by military conquest.
Union Territory of Daman and Diu comprises two districts namely Daman and Diu. Both Districts are situated on the western coast of India at a distance of about 700 km. Daman is the Head Quarter of this Union Territory. Daman is on the mainland, while Diu is mainland on an island!! Both the Districts of Daman and Diu are near Gujarat State and are separated by about 700 km from one another.
Diu is a tiny island of breeze and beauty on the Western coast of India. The climate here is pleasant throughout the year making it an all-season tourist spot. Diu was a Portuguese colony till 1961 and is now a Union Territory separated from Goa in 1987. This has been an important trading post and naval base of armies for centuries in the past. A perfect blend of the Sun, Sand and Sea this serene island is situated off the tip of the Saurashtra peninsula of Gujarat. Lapped by the Arabian sea Diu has some superb beaches and fascinating history of the colonial past. The branching palms of Diu, known as Hoka trees were introduced by the Portuguese from faraway Africa!! The historical Portuguese monuments, the golden beaches, unpolluted blue water, various water sports and friendly people make Diu a perfect gateway at any time of the year.
Nestling near the mouth of the Damanganga River as it embraces the Arabian Sea, the Union Territory of Daman is easily your dream destination. Its picture postcard loveliness never fails to charm the innumerable tourists who visit here. Far from the madding crowd, its beauty, variety and tranquillity weave unique magic on the traveller. This picturesque fort town has retained its old-world charm, vestiges of the Portuguese colonial rule from 1531 to 1961. Even today history whispers through the walls of its forts and churches. A beautiful lighthouse, fort, beach, churches and proximity to Mumbai and Surat make Daman a convenient gateway. Sun, sand, surf and life at a languorous pace, Daman is a place to slow down and relax. Daman is best in the winter, though a monsoon visit with greenery around the city and approaching roads is wonderful. Recently, a helicopter service is connecting Daman and Diu, which is added attraction for visiting both places.
The best time to visit the Maldives is between November and April. The climate is warm and tropical, with average highs at a consistent 29°C to 31°C year-round and average lows rarely falling below 24°C.
January to April are the driest months, with little rain and low humidity, making this peak season at the resorts. Temperatures are still warm from May to December, but rain is more likely and there is a risk of storms. However, even during this period there are usually long spells of bright sunshine. Attractive prices and offers mean this is still a common time to visit
