Popular Modes of Transport
Traveling within Diu is much cheaper as the fares are bargainable. Auto-rickshaws provide rides to Sunset Point, Nagoa Beach, Ghogla, and Una. A good thing would be to hire a cycle for traveling around. Bicycles can be rented from the Jampa Gate or from the Main Square. However, cycle rides can prove to be exhausting, especially to far-flung places.
Mopeds are by far the most convenient means of transport for moving about the island. Almost all the hotels rent out mopeds. However, it would be wise to check the mopeds before hiring them. Chandani Bike Hire, Manisha Electronics, and Reshma Travels are some of the agencies that hire out mopeds.
One can also try out the local buses. These buses usually leave from the Jethibai Bus Stand, opposite to the petrol pump located in Bunder Road. Bus services are available in the morning, afternoon and evening. Buses travel to and from Nagoa Beach, Vanakbara and Delwada.
Tourists can avail of these local means of transport while undertaking a tour of Diu Island.
