This beach is worth to see. Mountains around and road with beautiful views. You can spent there 5-10 minutes to make photos. You can take a 20-40 minutes tour by boat with local guide (do not pay more that 1-3 rials per person)

Overlooking the Gulf of Oman. Fantastic place. It is full of small beaches between the mountains. And the color of the turquoise water. And places to hunt for fish.

Really enjoyed a break here at Qantab beach. Very beautiful surroundings and the locals are incredibly friendly. Take a swim in the bay (32 degrees C water temp when I visited) or sit and watch the local fishermen mending their nets.
