Visit an enchanting place that’s not swamped with tourists.

Because of its remote location and the political instability in Yemen, Socotra has had limited numbers of tourists. This means you’ll be visiting a place with largely untouched beauty. Socotra is particularly ideal for adventurous travellers and researchers interested in its unique ecosystems.
