Socotra Sea Adventure

In this itinerary we enjoy the enchanting beaches of every corner of the island, from the Shoab beach to the unexplored southwest coast, completing the itinerary with the windy northeast coast.  The main focus is the sea in all its aspects, with unique boat rides and swims in the best spots of the island. And we will enjoy all of this while camping on solitary beautiful beaches! We will also venture to Nith, the remote village of Dishebro and the Darsah Island, all places rarely frequented by outsiders. These hidden gems remain a well-kept secret, untouched by the masses.
