(5/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
Surrounded by jagged limestone mountains, Qalansiyah Beach offers white sand and turquoise water. You can choose to hike here or arrive by a short boat ride. Enjoy a dip in the clear water or don a snorkeling mask to notice an array of tropical fish swimming just below the surface. Look for tourist amenities and a campsite near Detwah Lagoon. Qalansiyah Beach is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Socotra Island Edition.

  • In our opinion, the best beach on the island. white sand, blue water and it is poorly populated. stayed overnight at the camp. Not far from the town, where in the morning visited the local fish market, and later went to sea to observe dolphins!

  • Simply the best place I've been in the world. This might not help you with going on a holiday but it's is what it is and it is the BEST!
