  • Its a small museum but nicely done. The castle is well preserved and the views are beautiful from the castle wall.  more »
  • "The beautiful and imposing Fort of Khasab (built in the 16th century by the Portuguese and recently restored) dominates the Bay and the port. It houses an interesting museum about the traditions of the Sultanate (restored boats, homes rebuilt...). It is a small, quiet town of fishermen, former Portuguese colony following and current capital of the Musandam peninsula. It is located in a fascinating language of Earth, also known as the Norway of Oman.
