Socotra is a beautiful island just off the coast of Yemen. This sparsely known wonder features on only extremely seasoned and avid travellers list. With a beautiful coastline at par with any other well known coastline in the world, extremely weird looking plants, the island is very isolated and through the process of speciation, a third of its plant life is found nowhere else on the planet. It has been described as the most alien-looking place on Earth. The archipelago consists of the main island of Socotra (3,665 km2), the three smaller islands of Abd al Kuri, Samhah and Darsa and small rock outcrops like Ka'l Fir'awn and Sabuniyah that are uninhabitable by humans but important for seabirds.

Socotra is one of those rare islands with amazing beaches but no commercial resorts lining the coast. Clear sands and warm waters beckon, the simple locals warm your heart and the bio-diversity leaves you spell-bound. The sand dunes are another huge attraction, and you can actually traverse Socotra and stay overnight in the desert in desert safaris. The dragon blood trees are amazing, and leave you spell-bound. They are not trimmed or shaped but grow like this naturally to protect themselves from harsh winds. The main town of Hadibo has many cheap hotels where you can find good bargains. Many tourists prefer to camp on beaches. To get around you need to hire a vehicle. There is only one local airline that flies to Socotra, so connectivity is limited, but who said it would be easy to reach an another world all-together ?
