It's a nice place. The road towards the beach is awesome. It's the most people favorite. There are boating which will be nice. All the people visiting muscat will be going to this place.

We enjoyed the way locals do fishing. The joy ride in to sea by local boats both manual and machine operated are worth.

The amount of trash in Oman is ruining this country! The beaches are filthy!

One thing that makes me really angry is people drive on the beach even though there are signs everywhere saying not to do so! People are too lazy to care their beach stuff from the car to their spot on the beach! Also the boats and boatmen are really irritating and will way over charge you especially if you are white, so barter hard and if you don't get the price you want walk away.

Warning!!!

I have see people ask to be taken to a private beach (a cove) and the driver leaves them there for a very long time!

This is not a clean beach! The other reviewers are blind!

This beach was one of the serene most beaches within the boundaries of Muscat which is pretty much approachable from all places. It was one of the best natural wonders that Muscat had to offer (Oman has a plethora of scenic wonders to offer). One could easily escape the metropolitan's hustle bustle into this tranquil resort and the best thing was that it is right in the center of the city.
However, here is where the disappointment kicks in. Over the recent times this heavenly white sand beach has been quarantened from public visits altogether because they are building a commercial luxury resort there. No one is allowed to go there anymore. All that is left of Qantab beach now is a murky dirty brown piece of mud where commercial motorboats dock to take visitors on small round trip in these diesel operated boats.
