Taqah castle and fantastic lookouts of the wild khareef sea.

Taqah Castle - door

Taqah is a small coastal town 30-minute drive away from Salalah, Dhofar (Oman). We visited the place as part our Khareef trip. Lonely Planet considers this small, but well-preserved 19th century castle as the starred highlight of the region. We enjoyed the views from the castle hill, but suggest you spend more time exploring various Taqah lookouts east of the town. You can drive (4×4 preferred) all the way to Khor Rori Reserve.
