"Mukalla" Top 5 Page for this destination Yemen Things to Do Tip by MichaelFalk1969

Yemen Things to Do: 143 reviews and 301 photos


Mukalla is a rather modern but not unpleasant port town facing the Indian Ocean. Most travellers use it as a hub fly back to Sanaa after travelling the Hadramaut. The major attraction is the former Sultans palace; apart from that, there are diving and snorkeling possibilities. A day in Mukalla should be enough - there is not much to see - unless you plan a (long) daytrip to the famous beach of Bir Ali.
