Placese to visit in socotra

Dixam plateau home of dragoon blood trees

Dixam is a fictional place. You unexpectedly find yourself in prehistoric times in the center area of the island. Unique indigenous dragon blood trees can be found on the plateau and in the canyons (Dracena cinnabari). The unending play of shadows and colors in the fading sun creates strange, hard-to-believe visuals. A trip over the gravel route is rewarded with a swim in a rocky pool in the valley. Swimming in a rocky pool in the valley is a welcome reward after a trip through a magnificent environment on a gravel road.  An al-Keabanni camping spot is a great place to camp in Dixam.

Caves :

Houq Cave

The hike from the hamlet to the entrance of Houq Cave takes about an hour and a half, and it is recommended that travelers ascend with a local guide. The journey is not difficult, but it is somewhat long. Visitors are likely to follow it in the heat of the day, so please remind them to carry a couple of water bottles. The cave is pretty easy to enter, although it spans for around 3-4 kilometers along the cliff and is relatively cool inside. The cave’s ground is devoid of water, with the exception of terraced plots towards the cave’s end. The cave’s trail is lined with reflective tape, making it hard to get lost inside. Remember to bring a personal flashlight, and it usually takes 45 minutes to reach the cave’s finish.

Beaches :

Nogid

Nogid is situated in the central part of Socotra’s south shore. Tourists can go to Nogid through the asphalt road that runs through the Dixam Plateau. Tourists can also go to Stiro to witness the sand dunes and have the opportunity to stroll into the sands.

Dihamri

Dihamri is a must-see for coral reefs and abundant fish colonies that may be found right after entering the water. Tourists will enjoy swimming in the peaceful and safe bay of Dihamri with a view of the pair of distinctively red granite outcrops, despite the lack of a sandy beach. Tourists who are fortunate enough will be able to see two sea turtles that dwell in Dihamri.

Dittwah Lagoon

It’s the most impressive spot on the island’s coast, and it’s just close to Qalansiya on the island’s western tip, making it one of Socotra’s most charming spots. The sand tongue of Dittwah Bay, with turquoise water and strong waves, is popular with tourists.

Shouab

This beach is not simple to get to, but the easiest way to get there is to charter a boat from Qalansiya, which is where you can see dolphins. There is also a new road leading to Shouab, however, this mode of transportation is not particularly interesting or appealing. Tourists should consider staying overnight at Shouab because the sandy beach and mangroves are particularly beautiful at sunset.

Aoumak

On the southern coast, Aomak beach has a lengthy stretch of sand. The Indian Ocean may be rough for tourists, but they can relax in a palm leaf shelter and enjoy the tropical scenery. The spectacular sand dunes of Nogid are not far from Aomak.

Arhir

This beach is a magical area where visitors can imagine themselves in an Alps mountain meadow. After going through a few sand dunes, travelers will find themselves surrounded by a freshwater brook and verdant grass. However, there will be gigantic sand dunes to climb above the tourists’ heads.
