A jaw-dropping paradise

The SOCOTRA Island

The island of Socotra has been defined as ‘the most alien place on earth’ or ‘where the weird things are’. Socotra is one of the most isolated landforms on earth separated from Africa during the Miocene.

Since 2008, Socotra is UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its long geological isolation has created a spectacular endemic fauna & flora and it is considered the jewel of biodiversity of the Arabian Sea. The fact is that Socotra is the fifth place in the world with more endemic species that cannot be found anywhere else on earth!!!

We are not exaggerating when we say that the Socotra Islands is #TheMostAlienPlaceOnEarth

Discover its jaw-dropping formations!

  • The Dragon Blood Trees or umbrellas upside down.

Socotra is an adventure destination


The Socotra Islands has been practically isolated from the outside world. This is one of its greatest attractions: it is a virgin and unexplored destination.

Be prepared to spend most of your time outdoors. The connection with nature is key to understanding this trip. A world that is so unique and so isolated in time that the Wi-Fi connection is remote and non-existent in many parts of the island. It is time for you to connect with yourself.
