Qantab Beach is a popular destination for travellers and for the local inhabitants, especially on the weekends. Families come to barbeque on the shore; fisherman work from small boats in the harbour and swimming and snorkelling around the rock shelves in the harbor provides hours of enjoyable activity.The water is fairly shallow and the majority of the beach is sandy, making it an ideal beach for children to play. Rocky formations that jut from the water make fascinating scenery, and a casual and friendly atmosphere envelops the beach.

A few beach resorts and hotels offer lodging, their grounds sprinkled with palms and swimming pools.

Lively but not crowded, the beach is casual whilst still comfortable for the needs of beachgoers.
