“no swimming allowed, busy”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

no swimming is allowed and the beach was very busy with less savoury characters, and really there are better beaches in oman.

“Fantastic at Jissah!”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

We LOVED the beach at Jissah/Qantab, went first to the dive center and then to the hotel complex next door afterwards. Highly recommended!

“Superb view and crystal clear water”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

The first thing that amazes is the drive down to Qantab beach. The roads take us between the mountains till we make the turn which takes us to the Qantab. The beach is pristine with crystal clear water and a stunning view. The boat ride along the beach is a beautiful experience. The place gets crowded during weekends, and it is not a huge beach, but the beach in itself is worth a visit.

Take your swimming trunks and your cameras.

“Beautiful Beach and View”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

I visited Qantab beach in October on a weekend and it was very quiet. The beach itself is fantastic with views out to sea. To your back you have the ruined village of Qantab. There is very little here in the way of food and drink outlets save a solitary small shop. Water was crystal clear and boats were plying a trade in short trips out to sea. Previous stories of thefts from the beach are scurrilous. No Omani would steel anything from Westerners - only fellow Westerners. If you are in the vaccinity visit the beach at the diving centre as that is a little gem also.
