Once famous for dhow-building, Sur's boatyards are still functioning and open to visitors. Given this, plus a fine corniche, two forts, souqs and excellent beaches nearby, Sur is generally included on tours of Oman. It also serves as a convenient base for beauty spots around Tiwi and the turtle reserve at Ras Al Jinz.
