Beautiful fort. Very cheap entry for adults, free for children. Informative displays, peaceful environment. Well worth popping into for an hour or so.

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.

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.

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