This half-day excursion provides an introduction to parts of the Musandam Peninsula and its capital of Khasab. Depart the pier in air-conditioned coaches or microbuses and begin your tour with an orientation drive of Khasab and its surrounding areas.

Khasab Fort. Visit this picturesque stronghold built in the 17th century by the Portuguese seeking dominion over the maritime trade in the Strait of Hormuz. The fort was erected to prevent attacks from the sea. Teak wood from India was used for its construction and the roof was fashioned from a mix of palm leaves and clay. Within its low, crenellated walls, the fort contains a large central tower which is thought to pre-date the fort itself. The structure you see today is the result of extensive restoration work carried out in the late 20th century. The fort’s location offers excellent views and photo opportunities.

Wadi Tawi rive to Wadi Tawi where one could see the pre-historical rock paintings depicting camel, ship, warier etc.
