Daman is on the West Coast of India hugged by the Arabian Sea. Daman was liberated in 1961 from the Portuguese to form a part of the Indian Union. Daman is ideal for sunbathers, beachcombers, sightseers, swimmers, monument lovers and shoppers. Good seafood is also available. Gentle sea breeze, soft sands, inviting waters, historic churches, majestic forts, coconut groves, stately palms and sleepy villages nestled on the creeks is the setting of this place.
