Best beach view on the island
Oct 2019 • Friends
If you're on the island make sure to spend at least one night around Qalansiyah. It's a wonderful town with an amazing laguna just next to it. The water is cristal clear and you can ask one of the fisherman to take you to a remote beach nearby.

World's most beautiful beach?
Oct 2019 • Friends
I don't take superlatives lightly, so when I say this was the most incredible beach I've seen, it must be a special place. The beach is a long sand bar of fine white sand and a bunch of adorable crabs. This sandbar reaches over a lagoon where you can watch seawater spill into at high tide. There's loads of curious creatures in this mini ecosystem. The Sea water is crystal clear in shades of blue and turquoise. These is a rock overlook that should be climbed for the most sweeping view over it all.
In October, the water temperature was so easy to swim and float in. There is no coral or seaweed here so it's also easy to walk right in with bare feet.
An added bonus of this special place is that we were the only people there!
There is no shade on the sandbar so load up on water and sunscreen before you head out as it's a bit of a walk to access vehicles and gear again.

Best beach in the world

I occasionally catch photos of this beach and wonder at home truly spectacular it was. I have travelled extensively and never seen anything so beautiful, or so exclusive. It's bewilderingly beautiful.

Beautiful Sand and Water
Jun 2014 • Solo
There are some dramatic rocks jutting out to sea here, and a beautiful sandy beach just to the East with vibrant, blue water. Not far away is Detwah Lagoon which has stingrays in it and a thin strand of sand that extends far out, wrapping around the lagoon. Great views can be obtained from any of the hills and mountains in the area.

Gorgeous beyond belief
Dec 2013
Visited with my sister's family with a 1 and 3 year old. The beach and lagoon were gorgeous. The lagoon was great for the kids to walk through the water and we absolutely loved the sand bars and water caught between them when the sun is setting.

It was the most beautiful sunset, in water warmed by the sun, with the ocean just one sand bar away.
The toilet was a bit if walk from the huts, but this was quite nice so you were not disturbed when there were other visitors.

best beach I've ever seen
Jul 2014 • Solo
I am not a hardcore traveller (yet), but this is the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. We also got some food from a local lady (she cooked for us) and I was told during the high season there are also showers on the beach. If you like nature, beautiful beaches, quiet places, this is the best you can get!

another fantastic place on socotra...
Feb 2014 • Friends
This was our second most beautiful beach on Socotra island (first one is Shoab beach). Long, white, sandy beach you can have for yourself and share it with some crabs that build their "houses" there, very cute to see.
You absolutely must climb the hill and then run down the dune. The view from the top gives a fantastic overview over the lagoon's crystal clear water and famous sand string.
Great for a romantic, late afternoon stroll and sunset watching.

Don't confuse it with Detwah lagoon where the camping site is, you have to go around the hill towards the west and then you will come to the beginning of the beach (your guide will most probably bring you there by car and let you roam around on your own, but just in case if you are travelling on your own).
