Khasab is the principal city of the Musandam peninsula, an Omani enclave in emirati territory. Although the fort built by the Portuguese in the 17th century is the only monument to visit, Khasab is a popular destination for nature lovers and outdoor activities. In fact, it’s the necessary crossing point to visit the peninsula's "fjords." Local agencies organize 1- or 2-day excursions by dhow to discover them. It is also possible to watch dolphins, by going diving or on an excursion (on foot or in a 4 x 4) in the city's surrounding areas.
Unless you're on a several-day-long trek, I advise you to stay no more than 2 days in Khasab, because apart from sports activities, there is nothing else to do.
