The next is Bukha Fort, It is located in the tip portion of the Arabian Peninsula that reaches out toward Iran and the straight of Hormuz. The 25KM coastal road from Khasab to Bukha is thrilling and winding ride with sea to one side and blasted mountain on the other. While pass thru the village Al Harf, you will have a closer view to Iran over the straight of Hormuz. This magnificent fort is in the most picturesque location – the sea is just in front of it in a perfect crescent bay while tall mountains rise precipitously just above. The fort was built in the 16th century by the Portuguese and changed many hands since then. There are two forts await your exploration here.
