Daman and Diu, situated on the west coast of India on the Arabian Sea are exotic locations blessed with sun, sand and sea and very easily accessible. They along with Goa were taken back from the Portuguese in 1961. For a time they were governed from Goa, but both now constitute a Union Territory that is governed by the Central Government from Delhi.
Known for their beaches and exotic liquors, these twin towns are a tourist's haven for escaping the cacophony of mundane life. Be it the rich historic past or the faint songs of the anglers, everything in Daman and Diu assist in creating a paradise for one in search of tranquility. The forts and churches of the past, and the pubs of today, combine to engender a strange ambience of nostalgia and experience.
