Often dubbed the "Norway of Arabia," Khasab's landscape is shaped by rugged fjords, picturesque inlets and stark mountains. An interesting blend of sandy desert, bright blue water and palm trees, the unique geological features and beautiful wildlife are best explored by water.
Beyond sailing the fjords or taking a mountain safari in a 4x4, there's not much to see in the very small port town of Khasab. Besides the Khasab Castle, which was built by the Portuguese in the 17th century, the town doesn't boast much activity for passengers. Sure, there are a few small souvenir shops and cafes, as well as a mosque in the center of the city, but other than that, it's a sleepy town without much of a pulse.
If you do opt for a cruise, make sure to bring your camera as the water is home to plenty of pods of dolphins. Plus, the Arabian ships are worthy of a photo themselves, thanks to the unique shape and the brightly painted flags that hang from the masts.
