Seeb fish market

Make a first stop in Seeb. Attend the arrival of the fishermen and walk through the fish market.


Rustaq Fort

Continue in the direction of Rustaq. Encircled by a beautiful palm grove, this 13th-Century fort is one of the largest in the Sultanate. It is unique, because it was built on a water source, which flows near its foundations. The castle’s four towers provide lookout points.


Lunch at a local restaurant.


Nakhal Fort

Visit the Nakhal Fort, situated in the middle of date palm groves and offering a magnificent view from the terrace.

This pre-Islamic fort was built into the rock on the side of a mountain, spans 3400 square meters, and was used as the governor’s home.
