The Arab fort was built in 1780 by the Omanis and is almost next door to the House of Wonders.
The forst was used to protect people from attack from the mainland, it was then used as a prison.
There are left over ruins from a previous fortification and interesting artifacts to be seen.
The ground floor area now also houses a coffee shop and a few tourist shops. Prices inside here were much the same as anywhere else.
Apparently at night there is often a show (local music and dancing) in the arena.
Address: Harbour Road
