“Small but interesting fort”
Review of Ras al Hadd Castle

Ranked #4 of 7 things to do in Sur
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 April 2017

This is a small fort but free to enter. We were just driving past so decided to go in. Ended up having a great chat with a nice older local. Well worth a short stop.

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.
