"Suqutra" Socotra by DanielF

Socotra Travel Guide: 68 reviews and 273 photos

240 km off Cape Guardafui, the Easternmost point of the African continent. Largest island in Yemen and in the same-named archipelago, which also includes the smaller islands of Abd al Kuri and the Brothers. A population estimated at 40.000 inhabitants, although nobody knows the eact figure. The first airport was built in 1999. Strong monsoon winds make the arrival of ships impossible for a considerable part of the year.

Unique flora, unique fauna, unique landscapes and unique language. Socotora.
