Khasab, Oman Overview

Khasab (Arabic: خصب‎) is a city in an exclave of Oman bordering the United Arab Emirates. It is the local capital of the Musandam peninsula and is dubbed the “Norway of Arabia”.

The Portuguese built Khasab at the beginning of the 17th century, at the height of their naval presence in the region. The natural harbor gave shelter from tough seas. Unlike many forts, which were built on high ground for defensive purposes, Khasab was designed as a supply point for dates and water for Portuguese ships sailing through the strait. Today, Khasab is protected from floods by three large dams.
