Socotra Island

4.6

Galapagos of the Indian Ocean

Off coast of the Arabian Peninsula and the Horn of Africa, Socotra Island has developed in almost total isolation, yielding a biodiversity that is unique in the world. With over 700 plant and animal species existing here and nowhere else in the world, the World Heritage-listed island has an almost otherworldly atmosphere. A trip to Socotra Island reveals protected wildlife areas, sharp peaks of the interior, and long stretches of pristine shore. You can choose between several tour operators catering to active vacationers and organizing hikes, caving, camping, and other outdoor adventures. Socotra Island is in Yemen.

Where to stay in Socotra Island

Accommodations on Socotra Island remain quite limited, as the island stays true to its eco-tourism identity. A handful of hotels cluster around the capital Hadibo's 20 Street--air-conditioning, private bathrooms, and electrical generators are standard, along with various other amenities, such as onsite restaurants. To immerse yourself in Socotra's astounding nature, consider the eco-lodges or eco-campsites, run by local families and scattered around the island.
