It is the local capital of the Musandam peninsula. Khasab is located 500 kilometers from Muscat.
Access to the area by land was virtually impossible until a modern coast road was built, which allows fast access from the United Arabic Emirates, making Khasab a popular weekend destination for people living in the Emirates. The new road also allows access to the village of Tawi, where prehistoric drawings of boats, animals and warriors can be seen in the rock face.
