This half-day tour introduces you to Oman’s Musandam Peninsula. You’ll start off by driving to Khasab, where you’ll visit a fort built by the Portuguese in the 17th century. Unlike most around the world, this stronghold is close to sea level, so the views of the surrounding waters are second-to-none. Later, you’ll take a scenic drive through the peninsula’s rugged countryside, towards the seaside town of Bukha. This place is home to another sea-facing fort, which provided the town with protection in the Medieval ages. After a visit of the smooth-stoned castle, you’ll head back to Khasab, making a photo stop at one of the area’s grand, domed mosques.
