Dhow shipyard

Sur is where authentic dhows are still built in the traditional fashion. NOTE: the locals don't call them "dhows" but rather ''safeena'' (ship) or ''suh-fin'' (ships). If you say "dhow," they'll be perplexed.

Sunaysilah Fort

If the "natour" (guardian) isn't there, just walk up to the fort itself and he'll see you, come sell you a ticket and then sit in the entrance hall while you look around the displays. It is possible to climb all four towers which offer great views of the town. Don't expect much in the way of history or signs.

Al Ayjah Lighthouse

Built by the Portuguese and now fully restored, this building offers good views of Sur.
