  • Well maintained and clean. There are electric golf carts available for ₹40 for a round trip, if you wish to enjoy a ride... though it's not a long walk from the parking lot. It's about 15 min walk from parking lot. I board with INS Khukri storey would have been very good. There is a small food court as well.
  • A perfect place to spent you evening. 270 degree sea view with sunset enjoy cool breeze with some snacks and enrich the essence of patriotism by remembering the brave soldiers who lost lives in war. Well planned with parking, electric car to take you top of the memorial and beautiful calm beach near by makes it one the best places to hangout in Diu
