Daman, situated on the western coast of India and flanked by the Arabian Sea, is a charming tourist spot due to its natural scenery and calm beaches. Formerly a colony of the Portuguese, the town still retains the erstwhile European flavour where large tracks of palm trees and casuarinas groves add further beauty to it. Amid calm beaches and scenic settings, Daman invites tourists to laze around on the breezy sea-shores at sunset to feel the nature.
Tourists in Daman can enjoy many places, and the Devka Beach tops the chart for its bustling ambience, joy rides and variety of food choices. If the Jampore Beach is perfect for relaxing beach-lovers, then the Old Fort in Moti Daman reminds tourists of the Portuguese times. Other attractions in Moti Daman include the Iberian Church, Se Cathedral, Hilsa Aquarium, Governor's Palace and the Church of Bom Jesus.
Daman can be a paradise for those who look to enjoy the Portuguese architecture, and places for such tourists would be the Our Lady of Rosary Church. Other attractions here include the Satya Sagar Udyan, the St Jerome Fort or Fort of Nani Daman, the Church of Our Lady of the Sea, Gandhi Park at Daman Jetty, the old Lighthouse, the Jain Temple and the immensely charming Kadaiya Lake Garden and Damanganga Tourist Complex.
