TAQAH (طاقة)

Our next stop was a small but well-preserved castle built in the 19th century (🎟️3 OMR). With a furnished interior, good signage, and an accompanying booklet explaining the history of this sardine-producing town, this is one of the better fort museums in Oman. The fort is located in the pretty fishing village of Taqah, which boasts a white-sand beach, a landscaped Khor, a fine corniche, another fort on the hill (closed to visitors), and, for some inexplicable reason, a multistorey branch of Bank Dhofar.
