CITY TOUR OF KHASAB & BUKHAExplore Khasab and its surrounding areas from the comfort of an air-conditioned coach or microbus. The tour begins with a visit to the picturesque Fort Khasab, built in the 17th century by the Portuguese in an attempt to control maritime trade in the Strait of Hormuz. The fort was erected to prevent attacks from the sea. Teak wood from India was used for its construction and the roof was fashioned from a mix of palm leaves and clay. Within its low, crenellated walls, the fort contains a large central tower which is thought to pre-date the fort itself. The structure you see today is the result of extensive restoration work carried out in the late 20th century. The fort’s location offers excellent views and photo opportunities.Leaving the keep, the tour continues along the coastal road for about an hour to Bukha, which borders the Emirate of Ras al Khaima. On the way, enjoy the spectacular scenery along this ruggedly beautiful coastal route and hone your camera skills at various photo stops. Overlooking the sea and with a backdrop of mountains, the Fort at Bukha is the final stop of the tour and affords more breathtaking views from its gorgeous setting.
