Sign said open during day, reality it was, like many castles in Oman, closed. Might be the time of year.

We had thought this place was closed , we had read about it as being closed but thought we would go and view it from the outside at least . They said it had a great view over the bay and that is right ....More

While returning back from the Turtle reserve, we stopped at the castle for a visit. However it was closed on the weekend. We clicked a few pictures outside the main entrance and headed back to Muscat.

We were hoping for a swim at Ras al Hadd beach, but not sure this beach is good for swimming: huge waves and very windy. Or maybe it was just a bad day? Ras al Hadd is a small village with really little going on...More

Took the 10-minute detour to visit this sleepy-looking village. Didn't seem like a lot to see, so moved on.

This is a small fort but free to enter. We were just driving past so decided to go in. Ended up having a great chat with a nice older local. Well worth a short stop.

This was one of the smallest castles we have visited, mainly it has a yard with a wall. No entrance fee. You need 5 minutes to visit it, but there is no harm if you skip it.

Decent castle to see. But once is always a curiosity. Next time may not be attractive enough. We went and enjoyed Sur thoroughly. But would not rate a castle very high on priority.

Nice Castle, well preserved. The guide Rashid was very friendly. We expend around 45 minutes during our visit.
