The Bandar Jissah coast is a labyrinth of peninsulas and small islands with steep sea cliffs. In the weekend the main beach is often crowded. Fishermen offer boat rides to the many small secluded beaches, a popular pastime for tourists and expats. The Bandar Jissah coast is also an excellent venue for diving and snorkeling. Deep water
soloing and snorkeling makes a great combination as you can give your arms a rest while checking out the colourful tropical fish. If you are lucky you may spot sting rays, reef sharks, moray eels and turtles. The rock is limestone. Due to the relatively young age of the rock it is not very well solidified. The sea water however has caused the formation of a hard crust, making rock climbing possible. Still, there is a lot of loose rock around and caution is advised.
Bandar Jissah beach can be easily reached by car and it only takes 20 minutes to get there from Qurum.
