Daman

Daman is Union territory situated just 15 km from Vapi, a border town on Gujarat-Maharashtra Border.
Daman was an erstwhile Portuguese colony and now a thriving industrial hub, a beach resort and a popular local getaway.
Daman thrives because of Alcohol Prohibition in neighboring Gujarat. There are wine shops attached to the Gujarat-Daman check post and the entire basis of its existence is based on cheap liquor (Tax free) and meals Guests from Mumbai (Maharashtra), Vapi, Valsad, Surat and other cities in Gujarat visit Gujarat on weekends.
Saturday evenings are full of beachside live music where thousands of guests dine with loud live music around (Mainly Indian Film songs). Devka beach where these hotels are situated is dark in colour and rocky in places and not good for swimming.
Jhampore Beach across the river at Moti Daman is more idyllic with casurina trees lines right next to the beach and and is good for a walk.
