Khasab fort opposite the main harbor is a great way of spending a couple of hours. Learning about the local culture, history of khasab/Oman the finding of oil and how it changed the landscape and lives of the Arabic nations The fort itself goes back to Portuguese occupation and shows Defence mechanisms and then how the locals lived and survived. A great insight to local history.

We went to this as part of a guided bus tour and it was well worth the stop. It is very well preserved and sits on the coast next to the beach amongst a quite large modern community. The history of this fort is worth learning about and gives you a great insight into life as it was in those times.
