“Very amall castle”
Review of Ras al Hadd Castle

Ranked #4 of 7 things to do in Sur
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 December 2016

This was one of the smallest castles we have visited, mainly it has a yard with a wall. No entrance fee. You need 5 minutes to visit it, but there is no harm if you skip it.

Decent castle to see. But once is always a curiosity. Next time may not be attractive enough. We went and enjoyed Sur thoroughly. But would not rate a castle very high on priority.

Nice Castle, well preserved. The guide Rashid was very friendly. We expend around 45 minutes during our visit.

Worth stopping at this small castle on your way to Sur coming from the south. The castle has only a couple of rooms with coffee pots, cooking utensils and guns. There is a large central courtyard with a well. You can visit the towers and walk along the ramparts. The staff speak good English and are friendly. The castle is free but you can leave a donation.

Great place to experience history. The castle is in great shape. Allthough there are not many rooms you can visit that have authentic interior, the building and its location give you a sense of how it must have been in the old days. Next to it is a nice mosque which makes nice pictures together with te castle. The village is also nice and has some old houses with historic handcrafted doors with woodcarving. It is near Turtle Beach Resort, whicj I can recommend.
