I dedicated my first day to exploring Daman’s rich history. I joined a group for the exploration, the group started at Moti Daman Fort, also known as Fort of St. Jerome, it was constructed in 1559 by Portuguese, shortly after they arrived in Daman.

The fortification encompasses an area of approximately 30,000 square meters, the main entrance of the fort is adorned with an impressive gateway that bears the court of arms of the Portuguese monarch.

Next, we visited the Church of Bom Jesus, which is one of the oldest and most prominent churches in the region. This church is an exquisite example of Baroque architecture. It was constructed in 1603 by Portuguese.

Commuting options – Daman is a small town and many attractions are within walking distance, walking is a pleasant option, but there are many other options to commute if you don’t wish to walk everywhere. Bicycles or scooters on rent is a popular option for tourists. It allows you to explore the town at your pace.

Day 3- Out on The Beach

Beaches in Daman are its best attraction. I started the morning at Jampore beach, which is popular for its calm and peacefulness. It was the perfect spot to relax and read a good book with music of tides to accompany.

I spared the evening for some adventure at Devka beach and local cuisine. After a tasty lunch and a good spa at the resort, I headed to Devka beach for water sports, and enjoyed the adventurous rides.

Devka beach is lined up with numerous beach view restaurants and cafes. I randomly chose one and enjoyed local cuisine for the dinner. I ended the day by relaxing at the resort’s pool.

Day 4- Lush Green Goodbye

My final day was spent exploring Daman’s lush green gardens, after experiencing scuba diving at Jampore beach, as I couldn’t get enough of the peaceful ambience of the beach.

After the scuba diving, I headed towards the Mirasol Lake Garden, where I enjoyed a boat ride on the calming lake. The garden can be explored walking, as the garden has beautifully laid walking paths, perfect for a leisurely stroll or you can take the charming toy train ride.

After munching on a light snack at the Mirasol Lake Garden, I headed back home, with lots of memories from a wonderfully relaxing vacation.
