Ins Khukri Memorial, Diu Reviews
Its one of the best sunset point I have ever visited. Its really beautiful as you see the sun setting off in to the horizon where the sea and sky meets.... also we have a scaled down model of INS Khukri and the brave story behind it
Very beautiful place. The evening is the most beautiful time to be there with your beloved. One can go down and enjoy walking on the rocks submerged in water and explore the marine life. One can find a variety of marine flora and fauna in the potholes. It is very scenic during October to March. That's the best duration to visit and evening only.
The sea and wind here are fantastic. The memorial is small, but it may not be the main attraction. What makes this place distinct is the sea here. You can sit in the calm, and observe the surroundings. It's beautiful.
Very nice place to visit. Specially in morning we can see sunrise here. People come here for morning exercise. This is a place where our brave soldiers naval ship memorial kept.
Amazing view, and the architecture is very good, you can spend the time here of sunrise or sunset. Beautiful place
