I really wonder how one can visit the place as it was far off from land and I could find any other way to see it apart from distance.

Again nothing to do or visit here. Its an old jail that you can see from diu fort. You cant visit it. You could click some pictures standing in diu fort with the jail in the backdrop. That’s about it.

Fortim-do-Mar is a former diu Jail, built by Portuguese and is located exactly opp. to Diu fort. It is the middle in the sea, some 200 mtr from sea shore. Tourists are not allowed to visit this place. This structure now in dilapidated state.
