worth visiting but a little bit difficult to reach

May it is not the best season, and the road is rugged in some segments and lots of heavy trucks... read more

Lot of history in the middle of the mountains.

This site is really worth visiting. The drive up there is off the beaten track style. If you drive... read more

Amazing fort on top of mountain, near by the Fujairah airport road, minor off roading needes on parta of the road which is usually swept away by flash floods but the place is amazing to view, onsite guide is always available to show you all arround & tell about the history of the fort. Alos let me get on top of 4th floor for some pix. Highly recommended on anyones Fujairah visit!

A bit of drive from the city through the wadis at the end will get you to this place. It gives insight to how forts played their roles in defence and resources protection

It was a long drive from Dubai and a perfect weekend getaway

As it is high above the sea level there was wind and cooler than otherwise

The drive from Fujairah city to the castle was very good. You can take also your sedan without any problem and Google Maps helps you get there.

Do climb up the ladders to get to the top rooms.

There is nothing in there and all empty but place is maintained. No entry fee No provisions also available

one of the best forts to visit in Fujairah Emirate

20 minutes drive from the city. About half way through there is a 200-metre gravel part in the road. Do not get discouraged: it is short and you can make it with a regular sedan

It is a hidden fort: there are days when nobody is showing

the caretaker is very friendly, shows you around, takes picture with and of you

the fort is mid-sized, well maintained with great view of the surroundings

no entry fee, but pls tip the caretaker

We stayed the afternoon in this area and beyond to sunset. The access is a winding scenic road through quaint villages, and quite safe.

The sunset was quite spectacular in the November, and I was able to capture silhouettes of castle and the surrounding mountains; and as the darkness descended, the starry sky with a lighted fort.

If you decide to go earlier in the afternoon, you can enjoy hiking through the adjacent wadi and farms. Overall a very pleasant area and worth a visit.
