Very well restored, nice displays inside, clean toilet and very welcoming staff. On top of it very few visitors; hence we had the castle for ourselves during the visit.

I can't imagine there are many tourists going to Khasab other than cruise ship passengers. There is nothing to see in Khasab itself but the fort is well worth a walk round - it is in good shape and historical displays are interesting. If this...More

For us the attraction of Khasab is the setting of the place, so it is a bonus to have this reconstructed fort with its small museum about local life. Check opening times since it closed at 3.30 when we visited.

This museum based at the main castle in Khasab is well worth a visit. It is spread around the whole castle site and offers exhibits on Oman but especially Musandam and the local people's way of life, house building, fishing, date harvest and domestic animals...More

From the harbour to the castle is an about 30 minutes walk along the road with regular, but not very heavy traffic.
