A tour to Nagoa beach in Diu
‘Veraval Express’ in October is exactly a ‘Fire train’ as it is a very hot time in North India. For getting some breeze I have gone near to the door of the train, but in their also a queue. Some people put wet towels on their body to escape from heat. Then the train entered to the Konkan tunnels. While reaching the ‘Rathnagiri station’ the entire culture changed to Guajarati, a few people took Vadapa and masala tea. They are enjoying food without listening to others.
As a festival of sound the train reached Allahabad station. Half of the compartment becomes empty. After 20 minutes break train slowly starts moving through the dry desert places, in between cotton fields are coming and going. Finally the train stopped its long journey at Veraval Station. At that time only two peoples remained in my compartment.
As my earlier decision, I decided to go to Nagoa beach situated in Diu almost 90 km from the station. I took one old ambassador car, which is the only taxi available at that time. While this journey to Diu the car never crossed 40km/hr speed! Finally I reached at Nagoa beach.
Nagoa beach, one of the most beautiful and silent beaches in India. Nagoa beach is in the Buchanvada village of Diu. Gujaratis will come to here for getting some fresh air. One side of the beach we can see a lot of Seagulls and at other side tourists are enjoying the beauty of the semi circled beach. The main thing that we can see in here is ‘Hoko trees’. Lovers come and share their love at the shades of these trees.
