The roads in Qeshm are to a large extent paved. However the side roads which connect a number of tourist attractions to the main roads are often not paved, thereby requiring a 4WD car or another car with off-road capabilities. Along the northern coast of Qeshm, near Laft, there is a shipyard where traditional wooden dhows (transportation boats) are still being built. Laft is a pleasant city with a skyline consisting of many windcatcher towers (used to cool down houses in the summer).
