Island/Peninsula
sculptorsculptorMusandam Province (Musandam) is a mountainous Omani peninsula extending into the Strait of Hormuz, separating the United Arab Emirates from the rest of Oman. Its jagged coastline has fjord-like entrances, and its waters are home to dolphins and other marine life. Dhow cruise is a popular activity. Khasab is the capital of the local Musandam Peninsula. It is located on the south bank of the Strait of Hormuz and at the mouth of the Persian Gulf. It was built by the Portuguese in the 17th century and built on a natural harbour to protect it from waves. This area is also known as the "Norway of the Arabian Peninsula" because of its strong, glacier-like coastline, its towering mountains and clear and bright fjords.

The castle became a museum in 1990.

Beach
sculptorsculptorKhasab’s beach is about 5 kilometers away from the city center and is the closest swimming place to Khasab. Although the beach is small, there are not many people.

Surrounded by glacier-like coastlines, with towering mountains and clear and bright fjords, the environment is good.
