Teal Blue Water

One of the best off-beat places located near Daman-Gujarat border, it is a naturally formed lake after years of quarrying in the area.

Water here is crystal clear and teal blue due to the presence of limestone. Initially, the place used to be used for mining limestone and on presence of sunlight, it emits vibrant colours. The place is a popular hotspot for pre-wedding photoshoots.
