Explore Arad Fort, a 15th-century fortress built to monitor and protect the island. Today, it represents a great spot to take a strol, enjoy the views, have a drink, and take some artistic photos. Stroll around the site and reflect on the traditional architecture, which wasn’t altered during the fort's restoration in the 20th century; no modern materials, like cement, were used. See the four circular towers on the fort's corners, and peer down into the now disused moat outside the gates. From time to time, the fort serves as a venue for concerts and local festivals.

Arad Fort Reviews
We came here on a boat ride from the national museum. Nothing much to see, though you will get some good pictures of the city from the fort area. But, nothing to go out of your way for. more »

Great parking lot. Best place to spend time with your family and friends. Kids playing area, masjid and toilet. Very calm place with 3km walking area around the beach sidewalk
I had a quick 30 min walk to this small fort. Not much activity. It has entrance fee 1BD per person. A peaceful place with few tourist. Perfect spot for Instagram. Highly recommended for people interested to visit historical old ruins.
