  • excellent location in the Centre of the island! near the village, where the locals come, offering tourists a homemade suverniry and "pollen" dragon tree (a powerful antiseptic). Local as well as ensure that tents were placed in places specially designed led camping and not vytaptyvalas young grass, because the rains in this mestnojsti krajni are rare. The place is characterized by a large number of Dragon trees and rocks. Very picturesque! be sure to visit.

  • We have spent a night with Socotra eco tours here and were delighted by this heavenly spot. The starry sky a dream, the tank Shimmers in green and gold tones, a snow-white rock trimmed the edge, you can deliciously swim and enjoy the peace.
