Allow at least few hours for a visit. It's huge, beautiful and you will want to stay there to enjoy views. Take notes and read about history before driving there as there is little info available at the fort, however, it's still under restoration. Highly...More

This is an UNESCO site definitely worth a visit. I give the point to some reviewers on the fact that you dont get a lot of information about the place, but there is definitely a lot to explore. I found this fort more impressive that...More

A two hour drive South through the dessert will take you to the UNESCO listed Bahla Fort. Very cheap entrance fee will take you inside this Ibadi masterpiece. Due to its location it is very quiet and peaceful. The fort should take around a steady...More

This was our last stop for the day and on reflection, I wish we had more time to wander around the fort and it really is quite impressive. Whilst we had the history with Nizwa Fort, we had sheer scale with Bahla Fort. So many...More

What a contrast to Jabreen Castle. No info on any background or plaques in the rooms. Hot, dusty, limited amount to offer. It’s cheap at 1 Rial for 2

My favorite fort in the region. If you only want to visit two, i recommend jabreen castle and Bahla fort. For some reason, the entry fee was a lot cheaper than nizwa fort even though it has more to offer. In contrast to some European...More

This has been well restored and is absolutely huge. There is plenty to explore with some great views. It is also very quiet as not many people visit it. It could benefit from some more information inside and maybe having a few rooms furnished, which...More

A fort steeped in history and restored recently. Well worth a visit. A good hour will cover this fort, take in the surrounds as well

This is probably the biggest restored fort in Oman. It’s only recently opened and there is not yet a lot of information available inside the fort. Still it is impressive due to its size. There were very few other visitors when we were there, which...More
