A few hundred metres of the coast of Diu, this massive stone fortress dominated the channel between two peninsulas. It has a lighthouse, and a chapel. During the time that the Portuguease ruled Diu, it was used as an offshore prison. You have to take a ferry to visit it. At night, when viewed from the beach, it's a striking sight thanks to the colored illumination from its base. They say there used to be a secret undersea tunnel connecting the fort with the mainland. Scenes of the Bollywood film Qayamat were filmed here.
