Because of the unique and amazing biodiversity on the island, the entire place is now an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Because the island is somewhat new to tourism, with the airport opened only in 1999, you should not expect luxury accommodation. This is a place for nature loving travellers that want to experience see things unique to Socotra.
The amazing white sand beaches, the desert roses, the reef and the signature dragon blood trees are among the things that will take your breath away. You can rent a car or go on camel riding tours to explore the island.
