A complete feel of a fort. It welcomes you when you enter the town of Khasab and looks glorious at night as much in the daytime.

The ticket is about $1.5.
Parking is free and there are clean toilets inside.

In the Keep, which is the oldest part and main tower, there is a museum which tells alot about the area.

An old fort/castle in the heart of Khasab. It's neat to see the old historical sites and get the history through a guided tour. The Khasab Castle isn't very big but definitely has some unique museum features to bring it to life. Definitely worth a visit when visiting Khasab.

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.

I was very happy my friends, husband, and I wandered into town from our cruise ship to explore this fort on our own. Very picturesque and informative. The cost was 4.00€ per couple for admission.

Khasab fort is at the centre of the town. It has a very small museum. There are exhibits from history and a 2.5 million year old fossilized rock. The ticket price is 500 baiza for adults and 200 baiza for kids.

We enjoyed the exhibitions and we were part of a tour so no experience with ticket office. Caution is required if unsteady on feet as many uneven surfaces which is part of the character of the place. The honey moon suite the highlight
