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.

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.
