Quite beach in a quiet village now more visited due to the cloaing of the previously well known and pristine Qantab beach. This beach does not have the same space nor openness nor the the views but it still presents you with a pristine sea view, an opportunity to have a quiet boat ride and take some wonderful photographs.

Qantab is a residential village apparently dominated by fishermen. The peaceful beach is great spot to visit to enjoy and also to expose to local culture and to interact with the friendly Omani. You may be approached and by local fishermen for a short boat trip at reasonable price. Take the opportunity and you won’t regret it. The view from... More

Clean beach with lifeguard always present at this beach which is the property of the Shangrila Hotel. Qantab, Lovely to swim off . Hotel staff attentive to ones needs but many have barely any language skills & don't even understand basic English

There is nothing enticing about that place. Beach is nice but there are no restaurants or even public toilets there. There are 2 guys who can take you for a boat trip to surrounding beaches from there but you are much better to look for boats to hire in the nearby Marina Bandar Al Rowdha.

This is one of the best beaches of Muscat. Well maintained and has enough facilities around. Boating is a must try and we must go for coastal drive in the evening. We might be lucky to get a glimpse of Sunset on one corner and moon on the other. You might be lucky to catch both if in a single... More

I visit this beach with friends, was fun but nothing special. Sharp stones in sea. We enjoyed the sun at least. You can rent the boat and move to privat beach.

We spent a day here strolling along the entire length stopping for coffee midway, sitting on the beach and swimming. The beach is empty apart from a few walkers. There are NO sun beds at all which is great and only a few people sitting on the beach on its long 7k stretch
