We visited Mirbat on a sightseeing trip out of Salahah. The renovated fort was open and cost around 6 OMR each for tourists. The floors have different rooms with interesting artifacts about Omani trade routes and the sort of trade they dealt with over the centuries. However, it was somewhat disappointing that there is nothing whatsoever mentioned about the Battle of Mirbat in 1972 of which this building played a key part. The buildings around the Fort are ruined and deserted but once you get into the port area, its starting to be built up. We had lunch in a restaurant by the harbour which served excellent fresh fish.

Small compact historic building the lady at reception was very knowledgeable so.e interesting facts shame there is no mention of the historic battle that took place in the area.

Fabulous visit the Municipality should have nominal charge and sell souvenirs and DVD's regarding the history of the area.

Mirabat is an ancient city and has various homes or town itself is very old with a lot of ruins still around but this place is refurbished and brought to shape how it might look like once upon a time. A nice worth place / small town to be visited if one can take time out when in Salalah

It is a really well rebuilt castle which contains an interesting exhibition about the life of the people in the castle. Even the live inside looks really good. The life outside :-( all the buildings and houses arround are destroyed and damaged. Anyway...the castle is lovely to visit

Mirbat castle is located on the coast not far from the centre of the small town of Mirbat. The place was the epicenter of the conflict in early 1970s in Oman civil war. There is a building close by which is another remnant of that period.

The castle has been renovated and is open for visits, though at the time I visited, it was closed due to Covid restrictions. It offers a very good glimpse of what ot must have been like to be in that period of turmoil.

The castle is well laid out with lots of interesting information and displays. The wider area has more to offer than just the castle with tower and battle at Mirbat in 1972. Unfortunately there is no displays on this so do your research in advance.

We loved the different shades of blue in the water and the variety of greens in the surrounding area. A beautiful place to picnic and enjoy every breadth of time spent here.
Mirbat is a must visit location in Salalah. carry your picnic basket to enjoy and bask in the awesome surrounding.

I visited this place on May 15th, 2018 from Salalah while visiting Mirbat, I wasnt able to visit inside the castle as it was closed.
The castle was small so I don't think there is any thing worth watching here, but the whole location is picturesque, the whole beach and stuff.
This place opens by 9AM-1:30PM and doesn't open on Fridays and Saturdays.
