Socotra is as much beautiful as uncomfortable for living, especially for those who spends much time here.
Today Socotra is rapidly changing. It so happed that I witness and participate directly in its development. I started arranging tourist programs together with the Socotran guides who became my sincere friends for several years.
On this page I tell about my trips to the island, new places and people, the Socotrans’ life, as well as about the changes provoked by globalization.
Socotra is a small and wild island so far. The main goal of my project is the creation of a comprehensive eco-tourism system on the island, which will help islanders to improve their standard of living and give other people a chance to see such an island like it was long before our birth.
Socotra has plenty of sand. Besides big dunes and endless multikilometer beaches you can also admire fancy sand patterns here.
Everybody knows that Socotra’s inshore waters are full of various fish species.
Besides mountain areas Socotra has very beautiful desolate beaches.
Besides usual touristic places Socotra has a great many secluded nooks that are also worth visiting.
The central plateau of the island is covered by cirque fields. Years ago they had dense vegetation, but it was eaten by goats.
