“A visit to a small caste in absence of things to do”
Review of Ras al Hadd Castle

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

We were hoping for a swim at Ras al Hadd beach, but not sure this beach is good for swimming: huge waves and very windy. Or maybe it was just a bad day? Ras al Hadd is a small village with really little going on so a visit to this castle cheered us up.

Took the 10-minute detour to visit this sleepy-looking village. Didn't seem like a lot to see, so moved on.

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.
