Darsa is an uninhabited island located to the south-west of Socotra.
The Socotra Archipelago, a part of the Republic of Yemen, consists of the biggest Socotra Island and a few small ones, of which Abd-el-Kuri, the closest island to the Horn of Africa, and Samha Island, one of Al-Ikhvan islands (Samha and Darsa), are settled by people. Darsa Island is peopleless. The smaller islands and rocks are uninhabitable.
Underwater hunting on Socotra is strictly prohibited by law. But nobody has anything against free diving and spinning.
The best time for diving on Socotra is the period from September to October and from March to May, when wind falls and the sea calms down.
