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.
