Khasab is a city in an enclave of Oman bordering the United Arab Emirates. It is the local capital of the Musandam peninsula and has frequently been dubbed the “Norway of Arabia” because of its extensive fjord-like craggy inlets and desolate mountains capes.

Especially relevant, Portuguese built Khasab almost at the starting of 17th century, at the height of their naval presence in the region. The natural harbor gave shelter from tough seas. Consequently, they built many forts on high ground because of defensive purposes. While Portuguese designed this place as a supply point for dates and water for Portuguese ships sailing through the strait. Especially relevant today three large dams are protecting Khasab from floods.
